Oflife, 05 Dec 2011MagSafe is the one thing Apple should license because it improves safety. Far less chance of d... moreMagsafe is in no way a novel invention. eg. Trains have for many years used magnetics to secure or release couplings or electril cables. Its definitely not novel.
It's okay, apple pays alrady millions of dollars to nokia in license money, they were sued by nokia and backed off and searched for a settlement and now they pay a monthly license payment
Tim, 07 Dec 2011I like the current Blue-Glow Samsung uses. It's a nice effect.yes... me too? i hope samsung will not let apple people see this thing or else they'll apply for a patent for this again... why not all other android phones manufacturers sue apple for the sliding down notification? its an android unique feature and now apple has this too in iOS 5... they should have make it a sliding up notification to be unique...lol
Its stupidity. If I have patent for login form then I am applicable to sue millions of companies running online web applications. This has no end. This is like saying a car cannot have round staring wheel, a chair cannot have 4 legs cos they are all patented.
who is the 1st register the pattern invented dialpad? or qwerty keyboard? haha lets sue all phone company. :)
i Dont respect a company that steal ideas like Samsung even if they used these ideas in a better way i believe a company like Samsung should innovate thier own ideas like Microsoft that managed to create an OS which has a completely different UI instead of stealing ideas from iPhone and put it in the Android
AnonD-977, 05 Dec 2011This is the patent that Samsung had to work around to avoid being banned in the Netherlands. ... moreThis are no fairy tails... in netherland sammy were sued for the design of the bounce so to say, not for the software... software patents are stupid and will totally slow down the possible improvements... Software has nothing to do with acrual intellectual property, like something real, what you can hold in your hands. Thing of an calculator... at some point nobody can produce a freakin calculator other than that one firm that patented the way a computer adds 2 numbers... than you have to find a stupid workaround, which will propably need 10x the resources to process the same stupid addition... software patents really are the worst thing, that could happen to europe.
Apple are just afraid since other devices have far surpassed them in every way now. Now they are relying on their cult like ifanboys. But without Jobs around anymore, they have no leader....

Anonymous, 05 Dec 2011Blame the Americans. Software patents don't exist in the rest of the world and are a US thing.This is the patent that Samsung had to work around to avoid being banned in the Netherlands.
Quit with the fairy tales, your statement just isn't true.
Speaking of fairy tales WTF is this, from the article:-
"something tells me they [Apple] will be more interested in blocking the sales of the Samsung devices instead of licensing the patent."
Pure conjecture and a baseless opinion.
it begin to bothering me to quite a extend this article always turn on fanboy APPLE, i gonna stop reading you guys if this thing carry on.
, apple is nothing, and will always be, without all the manufacturers would agree and sell their pieces technology to being integrated in the "iphoone"
This article is a bit hit 'n miss. It's like me saying I had tea with Steve Jobs in Samsungs headquarters naked. It doesn't mean anything.
The scrolling thing should be android base function, shouldn't they be sueing google instead of samsung?
