Apple and Samsung are in one of the most heated patent and design infringement wars right now. Apple has already reached a sales ban for the Galaxy Tab tablet in Germany. A new rumor report from The Korea Times says that Samsung now plans to gun down the iPhone 5 on arrival in Korea. Samsung is supposed to take Apple to court in Korea over violation of wireless patents. Samsung believes that their patents are strong enough to reach sales ban of the iPhone 5 in Korea.
Given the importance of Samsung in Korea, I can imagine that they will succeed. As said before, these patent wars are bad news for consumers. Consumers should be able to decide what product will succeed on the market place and not some sales ban.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
