An exercise in points of view

Did Samsung win or loose the trial against Apple?

Point of view 1: Lost! Samsung was ordered to pay $1.05B in damages! That is one big loss, if you ask me...

That is pretty much what I thought. Until Robert Scoble gave me point view 2:
They won. Big time! Why? Because copying Apple allowed them to become the #2 smartphone manufacturer in the world, and all that copying cost them was $1.05B (which is chump change for Samsung).

Every cloud has a silver lining. Just depends on your point of view...
