6:23 pm
glance. the facts in the case are pretty straight forward at this point. >> theyeally are. samsung phones and tablets do look a lot like apples. the question is jury face is why are they so similar. apple contends it's because samsung tried to rip them off. apple says people shouldn't be able to use what we invented. samsung in turn will likely try to convince the jury the look of its phone and tablets, the glass rectangle with the glass front is simply the way the devices have evolved. apple wasn't even the first to sell a phone that looked like an iphone, lg had a similar phone years ago. so what is samsung trying to do? well, it's not necessarily a patent violation if your product looks like someone else's. a good example of that is a car. they have four tires, there's a round steering wheel, just the best way to make a car, it's a question of function, mercedes
6:24 pm
isn't going to sue -- they have to act as certain way. and look the same. samsung's also counter suing, claiming that apple iphones have some components inside them that infringe on samsung patents. i watched their lawyers make that argument and perhaps we have almost a month to go in this trial, at least at first janell, that argument came across as weak and apple handled it very easily. rush hour might look a whole lot different on friday that's because for the first time b.a.r.t. is allowing bicycles on trains in the morning and evening commutes. the new pilot program is aimed to test the impact on train operations. the program will run every friday through august. talk about a dog day afternoon on the peninsula. prison inmates training animals to better behave.
