(Newser) – The latest development in the ongoing battle between Samsung and Apple should put the matter to rest in Europe: A British court has denied Apple's appeal of the court decision ruling that Samsung did not copy the popular iPad when it designed its Galaxy tablet, reports Reuters. There were some similarities in the two products, but ultimately, Samsung's design was "not as cool" as Apple's, so the latter must now run ads on its website and in print saying that Samsung did not infringe on Apple's design. "For the design of tablets in Europe this should be the final word," says an expert.

When you order all of your parts from Samsung, you shouldn't be too surprised when Samsung puts together the parts they designed and patented and make a tablet.

Apple is lucky the iPhone was first. The star is falling like Danika Patrik. the "i" series of apple products are becoming old technology. Look to the windows phones and surface, droids. Better faster stronger isn't apple.
