Nicole Perlroth and Nick Wingfield reporting on testimony from Christopher Stringer, a longtime Apple industrial designer, in the Apple v Samsung spat:

In his testimony earlier, Mr. Stringer said that Apple’s design team consists of 15 or 16 designers who work around a small kitchen table, a sharp contrast to Samsung’s 1,000 designers.

I cannot be the only one that finds this to be the single most interesting note about this trial so far. Some questions that I have:

  1. What kind of table?
  2. How big is “small”?
  3. Why does it take a 1,000 designers to rip-off an Apple design that only took 15-16 people to make?

I can’t wait to read more testimony like that.
