Oh dear I wish I could figure out how to quote!! That last line of Apples is pricless! Fundamentally unfair......thats Apple pardon the pun, all the way to the core!! They have used "unfair" business practices that though may not be illegal, is certainly unfair. Samsung can attest to that. I wish the legal deptarment of Apple could for one min take their head out of the case, and look at the situation like the public does. Or maybe this is just Karma!! Either way, its nice to see Apple getting a taste of its own "sour" fruit!

@Tygerstrike To quote text from articles, or anywhere else online for that matter, just copy the text you want to copy and then insert them like below:

[*quote]text goes in here, between the brackets, and without the *[/quote]

What you get then, is this:
text goes in here, between the brackets, and without the *

Hope that helps.

On my screen the quote box dissapeared... no text size, quotes, colorchanges or anything happened to differentiate your quote from normal.

I have had issues with this in the past.

@avioza Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean.

Are you saying you can't see a quote box in my last reply above?
