Several other sales bans have taken place over the summer and were relatively quickly lifted in their respective countries.

Judge Koh suggests Apple is “smoking crack” in Samsung case

Today in the ongoing Apple vs Samsung court case Judge Lucy Koh's patience wore thin as Apple presented a 75-page document highlighting 22 witnesses it would like to call in for rebuttal testimony, provided the court had the time. As those following the case closely know quite well, the case has a set number of hours which are already wearing quite thin. As quoted by The Verge as they sat in the courtroom listening in, Koh wondered aloud why Apple would offer the list "when unless you're smoking crack you know these witnesses aren't going to be called!"

Given the fact that Apple is currently suing Samsung for $2.5 billion, it seems that negotiations didn't go so well.

Huge Samsung iPhone report could be Apple’s smoking gun

A 2010 Samsung report detailing how the company's smartphones hold up against the iPhone in excruciating 132-page detail could prove the tipping point for the copycat legal case, Apple hopes. Acquired by Apple and admitted in full into evidence in the San Jose trial where Samsung fights allegations of blatantly copying the iPhone aesthetic, AllThingsD reports, the document ticks through the Galaxy S in assessment of basic functionality, visual elements, and features like browsing and multimedia, concluding that the Korean handset requires a jolt of Apple-style magic in order to compete.

Samsung Galaxy S III press photo leaked in invite

Samsung Galaxy S III press photo leaked in invite

What might be the actual Samsung Galaxy S III or the most interesting fake we've seen all year has appeared on the web tonight, this included in a press event invite set for May 22nd.

Is this therefor the real Samsung Galaxy S III, or simply a photo of a leg of a metal chair made to fool us all?
