After trying to be snarky and biting with its court ordered apology to Samsung, and being reprimanded by the UK court and told to fix it, Apple has now put a second, simple, much less back-handed "Samsung's dumb and we're the coolest" apology on their UK webpage. Hopefully this will be the end of it.
This time, Apple has complied to the spirit of the law a little more, by not implying anything with its now appropriately dry apology and by posting on its UK homepage in 11pt font as ordered. The apology on the homepage reads:
On 25 October 2012, Apple Inc. published a statement on its UK website in relation to Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers. That statement was inaccurate and did not comply with the order of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. The correct statement is at Samsung/Apple UK judgement.
The link, of course, goes to an explanation of the judgement, which you can see to the right.
It's probably best that all parties involved finally put this in the past. After all, Samsung has a snazzy new Nexus 10 to peddle and Apple the iPad Mini. Those two form factors are nothing alike. Finally, maybe this is over... for now. [9to5Mac]
