Why doesn't Google sue Apple for their pull down notification area because that's clearly a rip off. Apple need to stop acting like a bunch of sissies and accept the fact that they can't have a monopoly on the smartphone market because clearly that's what they want.

It is time for manufacturers to ignore the US market. Americans no longer innovate or produce much of value. American investors and business owners are decimating the US middle class to the extent that the US won't even be an interesting market for consumer products for much longer. Leave them, their lawyers and the broken USPTO patent-regime alone to boil in their own fat.

I'm no samsung defender, I am in fact a sony fan, however, apple has got to stop this nonsense, everybody is copying everybody in someways, and there is no way to create a cellphone that will be completely different from another because right from the start almost every cellphone that is of the same category shares similar principle, be it design wise, software wise, or even hardware wise...

I've been an Apple user for almost 2 decades and has never owned an iPhone nor do I intent to own one... that's as big statement seeing that I've been working on on the IIci, L Series, eMac, iMac, G3, G4, G5, iBook, MacBookPro etc. My computer experience on a Mac has and still is brilliant. As for their attempt for world domination in the cellular industry by accusing and sueing other rival companies to be on top is embarrassing. Why they don't use the wasted time, energy and capital on developing their iPhones to be a real force in the industry is beyond comprehension.

Apple are you too scared to: include Flash in your browsers, or to have simple mass storage connection to your devices without forcing your users to use iTunes, or to add a radio, or to make bluetooth transfers a reality... or are you afraid you may be sued for "stealing" these patents?????

Seriously, Apple your can stop to disappoint now.

Whoa! Who the hell grants a patent like this? As a person, I'm a single interface as well, does that mean I need to pay Apple when I search Google and flip through a book at the same time? Goddamit! US Gov. will let anyone patent anything.
Let's now wait until Apple finally realises humans need air to breathe so they can be granted patents for this too. Then they'll need to patent the name Air making Nike unable to sell any shoes from then onwards. Get a life Apple, it's called competition, deal with it.

this is just a marketing strategy because iDevices don't sell as good as expected so apple tries to clear some competition
