How did they ever give out a patent for swipe to unlock and searching from a single interface in the first place. Seriously...

I don't think the offending patent was Siri, even the Google search bar is capable of searching things in several locations through a single interface(which is pretty much what search means anyway). the patent description is quite vague and its a big surprise to me why such a bogus patent was handed to apple in the first place. but i wouldn't be surprised if you told me the judge was an apple user herself.

Galaxy Nexus released in Nov_11 and consider it from the Spec the phone give Mixed up range due to battery life wi=hich is short based on GSMarena review and no upgrade for the Camera since Nexus line up released still at 5 MP but take from the market and sales the phone is big fail just like the rest of the nexus line up,,, so trust me Google/Samsung havent lost greatly because this phone is wouldnt sale anyway

Im so sick of Apple's Bullshit. Trying to corner the market. Apple Devices arent all pure and original, they took shit from other companies also. This is the main reason why i sold most of my Apple Products

If the court gonna win Apple this time, all that I can say is Judge Lucy Koh is a BIG MORON!!

And the justice is no longer justice.

And I really tired of this injustice!

Just wait until "Google Now" comes out, which is going to eat Siri alive. That's what Apple is afraid of. Jelly Bean is going to really kick some butt.

"8,086,604 ('604). It basically refers to a device being able to search multiple sources through a single interface (Apple's Siri)"
Android had this LONG AGO

"5,946,647 (actionable linking)", Android had Voice actions

"patent 8,046,721 (slide-to-unlock)" how else are you suppose to unlock a touchscreen phone?

"8,074,172 (touch screen word suggestion)" android can't have it's own dictionary?

im so sick of apple sueing everybody. ESPECIALLY because most of the things they sue over, they didn't invent. All the companies should gang up on apple and sue it for having copy/paste functionality, having a flat back design (remember when apple said flat is boring? then copied every1 else and was flat?) and having a button on the side of the phone. android should sue for the notification bar. every1 should sue for having a color screen and internal antenna
