Top Apple dogs. Well, one former top dog
Ding, ding, ding! Fight!
Spotted in a potential witness list is Phil Schiller, Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing. While perhaps not a surprise witness, Scott Forstall, former vice president of iOS, may also take the stand.
Perhaps a lawyer (from either Samsung or Apple) will ask him to explain the Apple Maps disaster?
'Round and around we go
Susan Kare, a designer who was part of the early Mac team, is listed as a witness as well. She, Forstall and Schiller all testified during the trial that saw Apple awarded over $1 billion (about £62.3m, AU$1.06b) in damages from Samsung before Koh chopped that figure by about $450 million (about £280m, AU$477m).
While considered by some a proxy fight for the real battle of global gadget domination, the retrial will have very real consequences as Apple seeks to win back some of the damages Koh threw out due to jury error.
