The jury in the Apple vs. Samsung patent lawsuit came out with a stunning verdict this week that awards Apple over $1 billion in damages from Samsung.
This will be boasted about for the weeks to come as a crushing blow to both Samsung and the Android platform in general.
While it is true that it is a bad day for Samsung, it isn’t quite a crushing blow for several reasons. First, Samsung will appeal. There are many more court cases to go likely spanning over many, many years. (Tech legal blogs have something to write about for the next decade, hooray!) Second, both sides won’t be happy with the result and the Judge’s conduct throughout the case will likely mean they will press to start over. (Yes, Apple is probably unhappy with $1 billion since they asked for well over $2 billion.)
Thankfully, none of us have done anything that warrants paying someone $1 billion. Here are some articles to help you manage the money you do have:
