Apple slide-to-unlock patent invalidated by the German court - read the full textIt seems Apple is going to lose its slide-to-unlock gesture patent, at least in the EU, since a German court has declared it invalid. Everything started last year when Apple won an injunction against Motorola Mobility and attempted to ban the sales of certain devices. Encouraged by its victory...


Sort by:

Apple make money by over high prices and suing everyone it can get away with to make even more money, be it right or wrong. Shameless corporation greed. Most people have no idea of this and don't realize that every Apple product is based on existing technology that was there before.

..Instead of improved on your future iphone design and OS , it is sickening to see APPLE gaining profit by suing others......

Please relook again to your mission. I am sure APPLE have lists of mission/goals.....Dont forget that !!!

Motorola was once an honor most wanted phones, but recently, is nowhere :(
Motorola has a chance to model "Motorola X phone" to restore the fans who have liked this brand, and therefore should be given an opportunity this company to make a phone that many fans are waiting anxiously !!

Motorola x phone must have the following specifications:

1.Glass: Sapphire Glass better than Corning Gorilla Glass 3
2.Protection: anti scratch, watter and dust
3.Chipset: Snapdragon 800
4.Cpu: Quad-core 1.8 or 2Ghz Krai 400
5.Gpu: Adreno 330 or 420
6.Battery: 4000mah
7.Wireless Charging

and please as soon as possible to come on the market :)

the world is full of brainless-newmoney people and is also full of people wich wanna show off more than they have and earn indeed. overpriced apple products were very fine targeted to these people. LIKE STUPID BEATS BY DR. DRE HEADPHONES. ignorant people want to be seen in public showing off with products wich other people can't afford and can recognize easy from the distance,at the first glance, as being expansive products, and they buy like sheeps useless expansive products, without thinking, comparing. it is so easy to oveprice e mediocre product with good marketing gimmicks, but is so hard to make real good products with good price like htc did...for this reason toyota invented lexus, nissan invented infinity and honda invented acura and mercedes invented maybach-for ignorant brainless newmoney cowboys

You have your point. But if you're SMART enough then you should look around and see that there are technologies that make your life easier and cost less.
