Ah. Expect weeks.

Oh, I see. "... it is now 6 days since appearance of the notice and the court hasn't yet seen fit to invoke contempt". Thank you.
Of course, while the original order was six days ago, the high court's 'redo' instruction was only yesterday (Thursday). No contempt order can be filed till Monday (this isn't criminal contempt, it's indirect civil contempt, hence Apple being given 48 hours to comply).
After that Apple can:
  1. Hide behind "But I received advice from my lawyer to do it" (Delay 1),
  2. Appeal on the grounds that the original order didn't insist on the text of the apology being on the main homepage, and that page is more difficult to modify (Delay 2)
  3. Provide the affidavit requested. (Delay 3). Remember?
    '"I would like to see the head of Apple make an affidavit setting out the technical difficulties which means Apple canít put this on its site", Jacob said.'
The judge of course was implying that it should certainly be possible. Depending on how bloody-minded Tim Cook is feeling he will, I think, be confronted with an affidavit from some suitable fall guy web administrator detailing just why it's not possible. Then, when a revised 'apology' is in place, it will not be sufficient. Expect the resulting argument to extend well past December 14th.
