Ok, so I say it was a lot of money that Apple got payed. But actually, it was far less than they wanted to get payed. You may be wondering what I am talking about, so heres the scoop. Apple has a history of doing thongs there own way, thanks to a dude you may have heard of (lol) named Steve Jobs. So, when Apple gets copied off of, they don’t take it too well. Like, a long long time ago they tried to sue Microsoft for copying off of Mac OS, with Windows. (Mainly Windows 3) . So the other day Apple claims Samsung copied some of their Smart Phone features in there new Phone, so Apple once again took it to the court. Now why do I say ┬áthat 119 million bucks is a far cry from what they wanted? Well Apple wanted about $2,200,000,000 (2.2 billion). Now 119 mill is a far cry from that amount, and also much lees than the $930 million that Apple sought after and Much less than the $930 million that Apple got payed in a┬áseparate 2012 trial making similar patent infringement claims against older Samsung products, most of which are no longer for sale in the United States. Samsung Sought about 6 million, and got about 158,000. All in All, this was not much of a win for Apple s they did no get back much more than they put into the case.
