But at Pleasure and Pain, Whitney Hess, a user experience expert, is talking about the fact that the lawsuit is bringing a discussion of the hard-to-define field of user experience into a federal courtroom. Whitney looks at the implications of that development.

The email describes a tirade by J.K. Shin, Samsung’s president of mobile communications, about how much better the iPhone is than everything they make.
And what specifically did he say was the iPhone’s upper hand? Its UX.
