Why are Apple in possession of patents for "inventions" that were not invented by Apple themselves? This is stupid and it's tantamount to bullying tactics, not IP protection. If Apple can only compete against Android by constantly suing Android-focused manufacturers, it shows they lack the necessary vision to outsell Android devices on the strength of features alone. The more suits Apple lodge, the more I loathe the company. Moreover, why should there be patents for features such as the number recognition, or search features?! Such features pre-date the iPhone (vide Sony Ericsson k750i, for instane), or several iterations Microsoft Windows for that matter as well as Windows Mobile 6.1. How come Apple now decide who gets to implement these features given that they themselves are copying others' inventions? Also, what about the notification bar drop-down that they so obviously copied off Android?!
Seriously, Apple you make people hate you as much as you make your users adore you as if you're God's gift to us.

Apple alone holds 39% market share of smartphones(in U.S.). But then again it's not Samsung they are after. Its Android. Android has more than half of smartphone market share(again,in U.S.). And you know the reason why? Because Android OS is way better than iOS. But Apple already knows that. Thats why they are tryin really hard to ban ICS.
Q8Knight, 13 Feb 2012What an ignorant typical Iphone fanboy
Because the truth Apple is the one who copied Samsung ... more"Because the truth Apple is the one who copied Samsung design F700 and check the release date here in GSMarena it released before the first Iphone 2007"
What a typical iHater you are, but yes i checked:
Gsmarena: F700 Announced
2007, February. Released 2007, December
2007, January. Released 2007, June
Don't know if these iHater has their own calendar, but in my calendar, January is first month not february :)
IF we talk relase date IPhone came way before, so yes it looks like samsung copied first iPhone.
Lolz at Q8Knight for calling Steve Jobs a thief. Let his soul rest in peace.
Apple you FOOL, rather than trying to BAN Android devices, just concentrate on how to go about ways to unban ipads in China....

Apple stole the wheel steer of ipod from Tony Fadell and copied notification bar and lock screen and and Wallpapers customizable and Wireless Updates alot of stuffs from Android
Steve Jobs admitted that he is a thief and he used to rip people off all the time
Can the US economy just collapse already so phone manufacturers can just ignore you...
This is so silly.
Whichever patenting system accepted these features to be patented must've been so clueless.
Alot of these "patents" have been used in computer systems long before smartphones.
I hope Apple dies. In Sweden there are already more Android users over iOS users.
Do Apple lawyers just live in the court rooms. They are never out of them
This is so pathetic...in few years apple will sue apple for being apple!!!
Apple is ridiculous, trying to get competitors away, not being better than they. Stupid. This funcion of recognizing a phone number, internet/e-mail address on messages or web I had years before the iPhone was even lauched, on my Sony Ericsson Z530i.
Many of these patents are so generical than patenting hot dogs as yours because you added your own sauce on them, after that everybody must pay you to make any hot dog.
This whole patent war is ridiculous, just like children telling momy that his friend won his on video game.
