Apple is a joke of a company that only hipsters and children use. I hope they get sued by everyone.
yes and no imo. We wouldn't have the phones we have today if the iPhone never existed. Apple haven't been that triggerhappy about things afaik, only about Samsung and alleged infringement (which i agree with in some ways). Is the system broken? Yes, but i dont want to hold apple guilty of using the system pretty much everyone uses.
And its interesting how apple gets more hate because of this than actual copyrirght trolls.
but apple is the copyright troll they have been systematically going after everyone.
You have more info?
everything including current vs samsung and then some iv never even heard of
The only ones about copyright they initiated are Samsung and HTC. Didn't happen anything in the HTC case. There are a few where Apple are being sued though.
let the good times roll
expect more of this from now on.
samsung should not have threatened apple by saying they would block the LTE on the next iphone(which they can't do), now it seems apple is going to sue them again, it never ends:shadedshu
Poor Samsung, $1.05 billion is a helluva big prize for that and even that didn't make Apple happy. They has filed a fresh patent infringement action It's moronic. Apple products have Samsung parts. I bet if Samsung rebels Apple will fall.
Apple will find another supplier if Samsung cuts ties. They maybe already did for the iPhone 5 which is launching soon.
Copy-pasta from somewhere else:
Yeah, it's disgusting that nothing "tech" matters unless it appears in the same sentence as "Apple." People ought to know better.
what gets me is the patents infringed seem to be whimsical at best.
Had apple gone after samsung for manufacturing and assembly methods, then i could see that patent holding water.
Only apple use a milled housing with a glued on screen. It's an apple design feature, and it's also an ascetic one as well since it minimises lines on the rear of the device.
However all samsung devices are assembled in the normal fashion Screen first back last. Meaning more lines, removable back panels ect.
The USA courts have just proven what a mess their legal system is. Allowing a minimalist patent to hold water just sets the flood gates open for larger companies to patent a mish mash of concepts based on nothing other than ideas. What happens now when apple patents all rectangles of all sizes with a glass fronted screen and for multiple different tasks.
Here's a minimalist infra red box. (all touch screen TV remote's are gone)
Here's a minimalist screen with a GPS capability. (all GPS/sat navs are gone)
What upsets me the most however is a lot of countries have thrown out the apple/samsung debate, The USA failing to do this has probably stunted the market. Now small companies are going to be wary of Android, and it's similarities to apple. And without the financial grunt of samsung those companies are left without a defence if apple wants to intervene.
Hopefully samsung has secured the patents on those fold-able amolded screens, and plans to implement them without allowing apple to benefit. But also licences the technology to everyone else. That would just be pudding ATM.
yeah, thats pretty sick. big company just sue other company again and again and again coz they say the other competitors copy their patent. why dont apple sue other company that make stuff like their product 100%?
suing those tiny chinese clone companies is much much harder than suing a larger company like samsung
why go through the trouble when you have patent mines everywhere.
You guys didn't think it was over did you . . . . . .
I like to keep up with the news and I must say . . . . . . If I saw the nonsense unfolding in a movie I would be like ". . . . . . ummm . . . . . no."
Hogan the foreman was sued by Seagate in 1993 but The lawyer who sued Hogan on behalf of Seagate back in 1993 is now married to a partner at Quinn Emanuel, the lawyers for Samsung, this resulted in hogan becoming bankrupt and nearly ruined him.
So Either Samsungs lawyers did not do their job or they knew it
Or Apples lawyers are did not do their job
The Preliminary Injunction on the Galaxy Tab has also now been dissolved by the judge
beyond that Samsung probably have made their displays incompatible with Apple computers too along with the no name parts they make under a different label (every company has one)
Honestly Apple can go fuck themselves with their own apple
AMEN to that.
It seems I was on to something.....
So, I guess it sounded strange to Samsung as well.
Didn't know this thread was still alive...
Most of them are retaliatory, like kids in a sandbox "He started it!" And Apple did start it, they are pure evil incarnate.
Most often, large companies use patents as a defensive mechanism. Apple obviously went on the offensive, and the rest are being both offensive and defensive in response.
I can not for the life of me find the thread where it was discussed where Apple lost the litigation in the UK and was forced to post an apology.
This is the apology:
That's no apology. It's a slap in the face.
yup and guess what happens to Apple, certain ICs etc being made by samsung will no longer be in apple products.
Apple's Samsung statement reprimanded by court of appeal
Nothing like a slap in the face to Apple.
