Apple has a rule that if u cant beat em take them out!but they can never beat samsung!!!
Venkat-India, 04 Jul 2012I laugh you at ignorance. "Swipe to Lock" is a feature in AOSP, not provided by Sam... morea little note for ur ignorance. the search thing that the nexus was banned for was the only one accepted by the judge but apple sued samsung 4 many other things (u can read below)and true that samsung didn't touch the os on that device so why did they ban that particular one. obviously bcz it was a flagship in the world of cellphones. too bad apple
what they have copied from apple ?one thing that is simmilar ?all smartphones have the same formfactor so they all copy apple?you must apply round corners says apple :))this is bullshit they want monopoly that`s it.boicot apple.
Apple have a long history of court and don't forget the media can be manipulated to provoke a certain type of reaction. Everybody knows the court "use money to decide" the rightful way of law/regulation.
The only thing I would consider buying would be a Mac Pro or building myself a similarly capable machine. Too be honest, you can't even blame the OS anymore as Windows 7 and later are far more capable and dependable. If you find internet security is a concern, then dual-boot with Linux.
For all the pragmatism in the world, some people stop using common sense as soon as they see something new from Apple.

One more answer for your ignorance. The OS for NEXUS will not be touched by Samsung in any manner.
One more answer -- Apple filed suit against the software features not on the HW.
Hope you understand now. :-)
It doesn't matter that the Nexus is no longer been sold the phones that Apple should be worrying about are the S2,S3 and Galaxy Note.
and for those of you who wonders if this is not a personal vendetta of apple against samsung:
Why only GNex and SGS3 when there are other phones from other manufacturers which have this universal search? Even WP7 has it.. Even Symbian has it.. Even BB OS has it..
Tell me if it's not just apple scared the shit out of Samsung making it huge in the smartphone industry..
they can't innovate, so they litigate.. f**king great business strategy, eh..

Don't rely on those copyc... moreBut Samsung made purely just the hardware, the patent involved here is pure stock android which relates to local search via the toolbar. Another IFan who doesn't know what he's talking about.

Hey Google, next time use HTC or Motorola to manufacture the Nexus. Don't rely on those copycats at Samsung.
EdB, 04 Jul 2012Kwitcher bitchin people. If Google infringed, it infringed. Apple has rights. Too bad Google d... moresome people are "smart" enough to believe that these patents are the work of apple, when 99% of all their patents are either bought, or was from prior art..
I think really, general consumer users that don't care what things are as long as they work, won't really care about this. If you are into technology and it's evolution then it's more of a concern.
Apple have a history of claiming they own/created stuff they never which is believable to a naive person with no grasp on technology. I remember once, this younger guy ensuring me that Apple created the MP3 format/player. The truth is MP3 was licensed from someone else and picked up by likes of Sony, Archos and Philips. Also that the brings up the other point that MP3.com was around well long before the iTunes store or any other music store for that matter.
Canonical are actually one of the biggest players in the IT world with a large share in the server market. I like to see, Apple try and sue them.
Another thing is, why is the version of iTunes which gets coded for the PC getting more resourceful and slower on older machines when it does nothing new or better.
Apple are in my mind are one big Placebo effect of non-necessity when it comes to the consumer market. I saw one of those iPad 3 tablets yesterday and whilst it's an impressive screen. I wondered what all this fuss is about.
At the moment, my heart is set on a Google Nexus 7 which for the moment should suit my needs. If push came to shove and I could still get a Galaxy Nexus as there is still plenty of life in it yet. It's a shame Galaxy S 2 will receive no update which in terms of hardware is better. Then again, that's progress for you.
RejZoR, 04 Jul 2012Apple are bunch of tossers. In what way does Galaxy Nexus look like their stupid iPhone!?!?!?!... morethe decision came only after samsung failed to prove that they didn't copy apple, won't you complain if someone comes to your home and steals your things?
Neonode have the patent in USA... for "slide to unlock"! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ru2GjBTHRY
The judge is an iPhone 4S Owner . and all apps to him on app store are free for his account . No Jailbreaking ..lolzzzzz
