For the Jurors: The Apple vs. Samsung Verdict-O-Matic
If only it were this easy...
After approximately fifty long hours of litigation, the Apple vs Samsung trial has finally wrapped itself up last Friday. Now, all that is left is Tuesday's closing arguments before the jury begins its deliberations. While the presiding Judge Koh urged the two to meet and settle their differences, it looks like it's going to be up to the seven men and two women on the jury to decide the case.
Unfortunately for them, they'll have to sort through hours of expert testimony and hundreds of pages of instructions before unanimously agreeing on whether or not certain patents were valid and infringed upon. If they can't reach a unanimous decision, the case will be called a mistrial and we'll be back at square one, with Apple and Samsung millions of dollars in the gutter.
Luckily for the jury, the Joy of Tech comic by Nitrozac & Snaggy has created a convenient way to reach a verdict (click through twice on the image to the right).
