Members of the MacJury assembled virtually from some very different and unique locations under sometimes adverse circumstances to discuss and dissect the (almost) $1.5 billion verdict awarded to Apple in their patent suit against Samsung. Aspects of the verdict covered included the speed of the decision, the fact that Apple was not cited for any infringements, the probability of an appeal, and more. What this decision means for Google, Microsoft and other tablet makers, who the real winners are, and what it means for us are just some of the questions examined by the panel of Mark Fuccio, Ken Ray, Michael T. Rose and host Chuck Joiner.
