    I wonder how many of the Apple-toting fleabaggers occupying Wall Street are aware of this decision.
  4. So in fact Apple took different parts from different manufacturers like LCD screens, multitouch panels, chips, and other stuff and give them to Foxconn which produced for them the iPhone and iPad.
    Now basically Apple didn't have any patents related to those products since Apple didn't produced them, they just bought those products from different manufacturers.

    Then watch out the tricky part they produce a square phone or tablet and patent that square then with that patented square they try to minimize and render useless the other dozens of patents that are related to real technology inside a smartphone or tablet like GSM standards, 3G, 4G technology, LCD dispaly patents, multitouch panel patents, photo camera patents, antenna patents, ram memory patents, storage memory patents, CPU and GPU patents, and who knows what other patents are found inside a smart phone, and all those useful patents Apple is trying to minimize and trying to render them useless with a square patent, how genius is that ?

    Stupid Samsung, making a square tablet...oh wait, they're all square...

    Well, my period of mourning for Jobs is over, this reminds me how much of an ******* he was.
  7. People like Gates and Jobs got where they are today, by "standing on the shoulders of giants", they're marketing experts, armed with an arsenal of patents and backed up by teams of lawyers, not technical geniuses.

    wtf? "for allegedly copying the iPad too closely", why doesn't just Apply sue everyone who makes tablets just because they are making tablets...

    This is also one reason for why I don't support Apple in any way, I have never had an Apple product in my life and never will.

    This is how the game is played by virtually all big tech companies. Likewise, Samsung is suing Apple for a number of products -- not the least of which was asking for an inunction against the sale iPhones because Apple "copied" one of their phones too closely....

    AFTER Apple sued them...the order in which these events happened is pretty germane to the issue at hand...

    Apple upped the ante by asking for injunctions against what a lot of people argued would be a very strong competitor to the iPhone.

    Standard three Apple apologist arguments:
    1. The issue does not exist.
    2. The issue exists, but its not a problem.
    3. The issue exists, and its a problem, but everyone else is doing it so its ok.
