An Apple attorney on Wednesday said Samsung Electronics should pay $379 million for violating patents on the iPhone, as a damages retrial between the two mobile giants got underway. Last year, Apple was awarded over $1 billion after it convinced a jury that Samsung copied various iPhone features - like using your fingers to pinch and zoom on the screen - along with design touches like the phone's flat, black glass screen. District Judge Lucy Koh ruled the previous jury had made some errors in its calculations impacting about $400 million of the verdict.
