Today Apple was awarded over $1Billion by a unanimous jury who agreed that Samsung infringed on 7 of Apple's copyrights. [URL="http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444358404577609810658082898.html"]Wall Street Journal[/URL] reporting, "Jurors Friday found that Samsung infringed all but one of the seven patents at issue in the case—a patent covering the physical design of the iPad. They found all seven of Apple's patents valid—despite Samsung's attempts to have them thrown out. They also decided Apple didn't violate any of the five patents Samsung asserted in the case.The damage award is shy of Apple's request for more than $2.5 billion, but much larger than Samsung's estimates and still ranking among the largest intellectual-property awards on record."

So what does this mean for the world of mobile, computing and beyond? Samsung says it means less choice and higher prices. What do you think?
