Apple vs. Samsung Trial

I used the search button to find an existing thread, I couldn't find one, which surprises me. I'm curious to know what some of my fellow posters might think of the trial in general.

Do you think Apple has a legitimate claim on a rectangular design with rounded corners as an exclusive patent? The use of Icons in the OS? I really feel like Apple is taking the "they copied our design to an extreme" and also insisting that a patent infringement trial be heard by a jury that isn't at all qualified to interpret patent law is crazy. I really feel like apple is sinking to a new low with this. This jury could base their whole decision on "Gee I really like apple, I don't want them to stop making Iphones, that would be terrible! Guilty samsung!" Should this case have been decided by a jury rather than a panel of judges and patent attourneys?
