“They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool.”

– High Court Judge Birss, ruling that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line of tablets doesn’t infringe on Apple’s iPad design.

According to section 190 of the ruling:

The informed user’s overall impression of each of the Samsung Galaxy Tablets is the following. From the front they belong to the family which includes the Apple design; but the Samsung products are very thin, almost insubstantial members of that family with unusual details on the back. They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool. The overall impression produced is different.
