I think all that Apple is going to get will be a boomerang effect! Instead of focusing on improving their own products they focus on lawsuits. In the meantime their line-up is becoming more and more obsolete. Their soon to be launched iPhone 5 will probably have specs comparable with SII, at twice the price. And then Sansug will launch SIII and Apple's flagship will become again obsolete.
Apple should learn something from Nokia: from "king of the hill" to "yesterday's news" is sometimes just a single step, and that is called lack of innovation.

one of the reasons that i like motorola and nokia is that they never sue any company until apple started the game eventhough they both were the gaints at that time.
Don't know what will happen when every company starts suing every other company.
Hope this game stops soon.
By the apple products are good, but r pricy.
They have skillful hands in their team.
Anyway waiting to see the performance of meego- hartmann in the market.

> In reply to Aakash Pathak @ 2011-09-09 08:22 from TIEE - click to readJust for the record and to everyone here hating on Apple, Apple is NOT suing Samsung for producing better products. Samsung can go ahead and produce superior hardware and software for all Apple cares!

Yes, Galaxy Tab and S2 might be better than the iPad and iPhone but lets not forget the main reason here (and lets keep it the main reason), Samsung has plagiarized and imitated Apple's technology and design whether you would like to admit or not. The courts have already confirmed this and have taken action in some countries.

Think about it. If Samsung came up with something completely different from the iPad and iPhone, there would be NOTHING for Apple to sue them about. The main ones stopping innovation and new product developments is not Apple here, but Samsung.

Why is Apple discriminate LG, Samsung, why don't it include others who also produce the same products such as Sharp, Asus, Microsoft, Toshiba, Acer, HP, Motorola etc.

Apple brought the modern touch screen and smartphone interface and APPS screaming into modern day life, and with it a lot of patents. Other manufacturers saw the market share shrink so decided to imitate the iPhone with other phones and OS'. Patent battles from both parties will go on forever until there are more mergers i.e Windows/Nokia e.t.c

Apple has gone too far. I was an iSheep during tge iPhone/ iPhone 3g period but because of their boring OS, uninnovative products and hardware, and also copying features of every other OS into iOS5, and now this sueing case, I am proud to say I hate Apple and their next iPhone should be banned from being sold.

once again this shows how pathetic apple is. first signs that someone makes a superior product (not that it takes much seen as apple products have never been ahead of the game and you fan boys know it) and apple takes em to court, then steve jobbs steps down and appoints someone else to take the helm. what people dont realise is that steve has done this so he can pull the strings in the background but all along it will look like the new guy is bringing apple down with these pathetic lawsuits

Aplle is the innovator. All the rest are followers, and do no more but copy. If not for Apple you would all be using hand signals to communicate. Frankly their business practices have been very smart, unlike Samsung which is trying to buy a market.
