Update.Update: We've now had a chance to review the imposing 101 page injunction order and while there's obviously a lot going on, the core of the order is actually pretty straightforward. The court found that each of the four asserted Apple patents is likely infringed and valid, but only issued an injunction for infringement of the '604 patent. Judge Koh reasoned that unlike the other three patents, the '604 patent covered the highly valued unified search feature of Siri that contributed greatly to consumer demand for the iPhone 4S. Moreover, the court held that Android's infringing "Quick Search Box" feature was touted by Google as a "core user feature on Android" and, therefore, was also a key selling point for the Galaxy Nexus. From there the judge concluded that Apple would suffer irreparable harm in the form of significant lost market share if sales of the competitive Galaxy Nexus, and its unified search capabilities, continued:
The Court is persuaded by the evidence in the record that the '604 unified search functionality drives consumer demand in a way that affects substantial market share. Even accepting Samsung's argument that the intelligent voice-recognition aspect of Siri, as advertised, also contributes to consumer interest in the iPhone 4S, Apple has shown that the '604 Patented feature is core to Siri's functionality and is thus a but-for driver of demand for Siri. Accordingly, the Court finds that Apple has adequately established the requisite causal nexus between Samsung's alleged infringement of the '604 Patent and Apple's risk of suffering irreparable harm.
I wanted to try the official Samsung Flip Cover, so far it's pretty awesome.....for a flip cover style case. Even though I swore I'd go caseless it just caught my eye.
It totally replaces the back of the phone, so you pop off the original cover and put this on. It's much sturdier than the one that comes with the phone which is nice, and IMO has a better paint finish, feel and look. It's not nearly as metallic and the color just looks better to my eye.
The front also feels really nice. The flap has some annoyances like no cut outs for the notification light (some have used a belt hole puncher to create one that looks legit) and it's just there when you use the phone, but it's small and easy to move out of the way.
I love the way it feels in the hand, most likely will switch it on and off depending on my mood. Looks slick on the phone.

It looks sexy, but having a cover would be so god dam annoying.
haha It's really not that bad. Although if you talk on your phone often then yeah, no. Texting with it open you can hardly tell it's there.
I'll give it a week.
Kind of wish they just made the replacement back without the flap.....

So does anyone know an easy way of getting protected music out of itunes?

Also, this isn't exactly "easy", but if all else fails, burn them to audio CD, then RIP them, and I believe that would also do the trick.
