    Apparently, almost no judge around the world bought the malarky that Apple was selling when it claimed that Samsung "slavishly copied" the looks of the iPad. This is especially true for the U.K. Judge, Colin Birss. This is the same judge that we reported previously threw out Apple's case against Samsung proclaiming that Samsung's tablets were unlikely to be confused with Apple's iPad because they weren't "cool enough." He has taken things a step further in his final ruling; however, and has ordered Apple to publicly state on their own website that Samsung did not copy them. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    Ouch! That's like a slap in the face. Sometimes eating crow can be painful.
