Opinion: Samsung Vs. Apple: Justice?

Though hiding under a rock can be fun, lots of interesting insects and different colored worms, this pixie has to get some sun now and then.

I took a quick poll of my co-workers opinions regarding the Samsung/Apple verdict and the answer that best sums things up is:

“Ah. Complicated.”

Various journalists have covered this story. In a recent article, the New York Times interviewed a creative director at a design firm in Seattle called Tectonic. The designer’s feelings about the Apple/Samsung verdict were mixed. A potentially good outcome could be that companies may become more innovative by focusing on coming up with original design ideas.

However, concern was expressed over Apple’s patent on the pinch-to-zoom function. The designer worried that products without this common function, “would be like cars with square or triangular steering wheels.”
