    This is not surprising considering it's Apple.

    Samsung is definitely at a disadvantage since it is a Korean company battling an American company in American courts. Just because Google Now is better, it doesnt mean you have to sue.

    How can the USPO keep granting these obviously vague patents?

    If you have to use words like 'universal' in your patent, it's probably way too vague.

    Seem as though Apple has found out that the consumer has finally realized their products are a ripoff and not so keen to buy them anymore so they do the next best thing to bolster their bottom line, suing the pants off their rivals. They make me sick.

    If Apple devoted half as many resources to R&D as they do to patents and lawyers, they'd probably still have the better devices.

    Apple are like the patent system, abusive pathetic and should be shot down immediately its halting technology everyone is scared of creating something new and innovative because we have pathetic companies like apple with stupid patents.

    If this goes on I will patent life and death so I can sue everyone in the world I mean heck if apple has these kind of patents who's to say me patenting life and death wont be accepted if they accepted apples patents they have no choice but to patent mine.
  13. No, they copied it after Speaktoit, which has been out as long as Siri. Or maybe Dragon? Siri was nothing new when Apple started pushing it. It was already old technology. Siri was a free app for two years before Apple put it in the 4S.

    Apple is becoming more and more desperate as they lose control and market-share. This will go no where slow. It should go no where fast, but they will drag it out way longer then it needs to be.

  14. How is the word "Universal" even in a patent description. That's like saying I have a patent for "Universal mechanisms for moving humans in an urban ecosystem" then sue the car companies.

    Apple, SIRIously, what's your problem? Is it just money you are behind coz I do not see anything else in iPhones since its release, just the same casing with the Same "slide to unlock" and unchangeable themes.
    Every technology of yours including your infamous "Retina Display" have been overtaken, by phones that cost 1/4th of iPhones.
    Its time to grow up Apple, start developing and stop complaining.

    Apple should have cloned Steve Jobs while it still had the chance!
