Differences between Apple iPhones and ANY Android devices whether Samsung or not are SO obvious!

...effectively extend USA law abroad thus disenfranchising foreign citizens such as myself - who are unable to vote out the US congressmen who vote for these unfair pieces of legislation!
Fancy coming to a Tea party, say in Boston?

That is exatly what they did

Apple has spent this trial trying to convince the jury that it is difficult for a consumer to tell the difference between an iPhone and an Android Phone. Why didn't they bring in iPhones and Samsung phones (as configured by the shops) and let the jury have a play with them!
I guess you haven't been following this story that closely. That is exactly what was done. The jury has all of Samsung's alleged infringing devices in the deliberation room with them along with some Apple iPhone and iPad devices that were allegedly copied. They were instructed to look at them, turn them on, and compare them, to see for themselves if the Samsung phones violated any of Apple's design patents or trade dress. They were also given explicit instructions on how to connect them to the courthouse wi-fi system, and to not install any new software or accept any software updates that they might be prompted to install so that they are comparing the devices as shipped. I do agree with you that any reasonable jury should be able to tell the difference easily and therefore find that there was no market confusion created by the similarities in design.

Out the other side of their mouth

Out the other side of their mouth, Apple fanboys will go on and on about how inferior Android is. How difficult it is to use. Etc.

So which is it? Is it the same, or is it different?
