Searching is a "Standard" thing. Yes Patent the source code but you can't patent the action. Phones are just small computers... Should Apple seek a ban on Windows Computers for the "Start Search" option in the Start Menu ... it searches everywhere..?? Maybe Google should pull access to their search engines and sources when accessed via "SIRI" .. they wouldn't be making any advertisement revenue from it anyway. That would stick it to Apple. And yes - it is like Apple Patenting "Using a Button, on a Touch device to power on the unit" ... they add the word "Touch Device" to everything and it beomed a patent ... Really pathetic.
apple afraid to loose at mobile world , that y their always say people copy their patent . wat de fuckk wit apple . damnn .
What ever happened to a free market? Apple are snakes for doing this. All phones are going to share certain features. Apple don't have the right to think they own everything. . , how many phones use slide to unlock ?? It just seems like desperation tactics from apple. .. FAIL
really informative blog thanks..keep posting
Apple patent case: Samsung Galaxy Nexus banned in US
Lame attempt by Apple. I seriously can't wait to see the iPhone 5 and how laughably behind it will be opposed to the currend droids. I'm glad their fanbase is getting smaller day by day, everybody I know already moved from iPhones to droids...I dare You to do the same...
nice ... all we need as a smart phone is an iphone , thats all ..all the rest are copycats to the mighty apple , and therefor should be gone .
hahaha..what a bunch of mumbo-jumbo .
im not surprised of this ban! They have already been frightened by the achievement of google's new "buttery smooth project" and cool new usefull stuffs unlike ios6 crapdate .
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2012samsung the biggest copycat and goverment financial supported get finely what they deserved. ... morerubbish. how can you patent something that already exsists before they used it. apple is despirate and its more obvious than ever.
A nexus device is 10 times better and more functional than any iphone imo. Its sad for consumers.
Apple is the lamest company ever, this just proves how they can't face competition. Google should sue Apple for that "multiple search whatever" Google is a search engine for Jesus' sake!
Apple just re-releases stuff under a different name.
iPad is a large iPhone.
iPod is an iPhone with no GSM/3G support.
iOS 5 is now called iOS 6.
iPhone 4s is iPhone 4 with extra core and pixels.
I use Blackberry, so I have no side in this battle, but Apple is seriously lame.
So could someone tell me can I buy the Galaxy Nexus just right now? I see the offer on the Google Play site and I want to buy it. Is it possible or not?
Absolutely ridiculous!!!!! Can't see any of them being valid, although "prior art" is a bit different in the USA to other countries, so effectively the Nexus is being "banned" due to something that was around before Apple bother to patent it. Ridiculous.
face it sheep crapple is blocking all these products as they are kicking crapples a ss ..if they are not a a threat they would not behave like this ...google its time to produce your trump card ...motorola patents..if all the big mobile makers where to get togther they would be able to put a world wide ban on all crapple toys ...they copy everyone else.Android will win............just like microsoft kicked your a ss..overpriced...
i dont believe such stupid ruling has been given....comeon its a simple search feature!!!! even apple has copied more important things than this like notifications..even iphone should be banned then
ithehappy, 30 Jun 2012No problem, you are a Google fanboy.
But what you've said is possible, but in your day dream,... moreyou see, he/she is only being objective.
ok apple have more market share than bmw and maybe a porcelain company,other than android.
they are good at this but they will be fall if they continue walking on this path. Just see who is taking trash on their "big event" , who is trying so hard to banish other company service from their OS, even tough they have to replace it with a lower quality service?
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2012which Super AMOLED ?? S2, S3 ?
if u are for Note, then u fail as a photographer, get your eye... moreOnly recently had them done and a qualified optometetrist say's they're just fine thank you for asking!
As I emphasised before.TO MY EYES of all the phones I've tried and not just read about on the internet (HTC ONE X,iPhone 4S,Sony Experia etc)the Galaxy S3 does it for me more than any other.I don't expect anyone else to see the world through my eyes but I do allow them to make up their own minds what is good to them without judging them as having lower intelligence because their opinion differs from mine.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2012For the record, this is a Google's phone not Samsung. It's running on stock Android. Only Sams... moreFoxcon Chine makes the iphone and a lot of parts are from Samsung Electronics.
Apple can't compete with Samsung, so they go through the back door. It's not a good business practice. They should spend more time and money like Samsung to to more R & D for new products; instead of hitting competitors from the back door. For me, I do not like the idea of Apple, so I never buy any Apple products in the past, now and in the future. Don't give up Samsung and Google!
