AMD is currently the principal supplier of GPUs for Apple's Mac products
...quote says it all. Weak court to throw out a previous decision due to supplier protecting client. AMD ain't no "non-party".
So S3 will have to go back to court... this is a clear case of who has the deepest pockets to pay lawyers the longest, and also an "HTC+S3" vs "Apple+AMD". Somehow, I fall favour on the side of the small boys... but then again... they aint American companies are they? Protectionism or what?!
