Apple Can't Even Say Sorry Correctly

By Sam Gibbs on at

Oh dear Apple, I know you're bitter and twisted about having to apologise to Samsung and tell the world that it didn't copy you, but at least you could do it right the first time eh? A UK Judge has slammed Apple for adding "untrue" and "incorrect" details to its apology.

Apple couldn't just post a straight court-order apology; it insisted on sticking references to the 'cool' trial, and cases in Germany into the apology, in a direct breach of the court order. Judge Robin Jacob said today:

"I'm at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this. That is a plain breach of the order."

Apple now has 24 hours to set things right, and modify its apology post on its site, despite Cupertino claiming it needed 14 days to affect such a change. 14 day to change something on your own website? You've got to be having a laugh Apple. Seriously, just play nice and do as the judge tells you, OK? [Bloomberg]
