The amount of hate that Apple generated after all the litigations and the people following the technology trend seemed to have backfired to them as evident with the Apple stocks that keep going downhill and cutting back of orders for iphone parts. Now, Apple already feel the pinch.

Haha. It's funny how crapple keeps trying to sue everyone, but are loosing case after case yet people are gang banging them from every corner. They stole the name ipad, ifone, had to post on their site that samsung did not copy on their site twice and even tried to do it in a non compliance way the second time and claimed two weeks is not enough to to make the simple couplse sentence statement on their own site???? Lol. Now this and they claim it's small? Not to mention the clock thing...if anyone remembers the company chime in

true face of apple, not the victim but the purpetrator. facetime and imessage is a big feature of apple products, if apple is shamelessly stealing patents like this from a small tech firm than it puts a whole new light on the court cases all over the world.
