But only one reviewer -- Engadget's Myriam Joire -- bothered to mention the Chromebox's uncanny resemblance to a product Apple (AAPL) sells.

FORTUNE -- Conan O'Brien is an equal opportunity satirist. He loves to puncture Apple's (AAPL) hype and pomposity (see here). But on Tuesday night Team Coco lampooned Samsung's claim -- made in all seriousness in court earlier that day -- that no consumer could mistake a Galaxy smartphone or tablet for an iPhone or iPad.Philip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 8, 2012 5:53 AM ET
"Fundamental fairness requires that the jury decide the case based on all the evidence."
FORTUNE -- Two funny things about the e-mail to the press of excluded evidence that got John Quinn, Samsung's lead lawyer, in such hot water with the judge -- and prompted Apple (AAPL) Wednesday to file for sanctions:
1) Although Quinn, who had literally begged judge Lucy Koh to let him show the jury the evidence, wrote in a MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 2, 2012 6:58 AM ET

And by the way, you owe us $2.5 billion in sales, damages and lost profits for ours

Remember Apple's QuickTake cameras? Kodak does.
FORTUNE -- In the early 1990s, long after Steve Jobs left the company, Apple (AAPL) approached Kodak (EKDKQ) executives and asked them to build a camera for the Mac.
The result -- the QuickTake 100, released in 1994 -- was one of the first digital cameras designed for consumers. It was hailed by Time Magazine as one of the 100 greatest and most influential inventions since MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 22, 2012 6:44 AM ET
Not just patent trolls, but companies with a combined worth of over $1 trillion have filed IP suits
