Reuters has some great info coming out of the Apple v. Samsung trial:
In a high-profile U.S. patent infringement trial against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd that began this week, it called 17-year Apple design veteran Christopher Stringer as its first witness.
“Our role is to imagine products that don’t exist and guide them to life,” he told the jury.
Stringer said Apple’s group of 15 to 16 industrial designers — headed by the British-born and recently knighted Ive — work on all of the company’s products and dedicate time every week to discuss them, mostly at the kitchen table.
That’s where the group is “most comfortable,” he said.
This is already looking like the O.J. Simpson trial of the tech world. The media attention is enormous.
