I sure glad Apple had nothing to do with the invention of the motor car otherwize we would still be buying 1940s tech iCars as Ford and GM would have been sued out of existence....

I think Apple should start paying to Palm OS, Windows Mobile & etc older mobile OS too since there are so many similar features copied in the iOS.
I'm starting to disgust Apple. They're getting more and more annoying with their "pattern". Where is healthy competition? Seriously.
Apple are just doing this to cover up all the things they copied from android onto their iOS I mean come on apple now it's been rumored you're putting in face recognition that ICS has had for at least a month now. I'm done with buying you're products if you don't stop this war!

All of ... moreYou have drank so much Android Koolaid that the nonsense you spout out can only be understood by other Android junkies like yourself. So far removed from the truth it's almost hilarious.
Love how Apple is supposed to be this big copycat who never did anything themselves, yet just a simple cursory glance and you can see a whole slew of unique designs, take a look at any of the Asian companies and you won't see half as many innovations (except Sony who are also wonderful at design).
I have been using both Apple and PC products since 1985, you Android babies dissing Apple havent a clue about innovation. Apple is not perfect, and I'm not going to waste my time defending it, but they have certainly brought some amazingly exciting products to the market, enough to earn them the title of innovative.
only loser will use eccesive force to kill others, in the real market, apple already lost the battle, thats why apple trying hard to ban android products. poor apple
it is funny because apple fan boys used to say microsoft want to own everything now apple got big and look at what their doing now they want to monopolised technology so everyone would have to pay them and you are simply falling for the traps

It should read:
"Apple should be getting...... moreApple shouldn't get anything. The truth is that apple hadn't done anything themselves. All of that what they call their own is made by others and they are taking credit for all of it.
Oh, I remember when I read that a Mac has "software and hardware both made by the same company", written by Apple, and it IS NOT TRUE. What's Intel? Oh no! It's not Apple!
Bolo, 29 Dec 2011In Italy customers win 2-years warranty time from Apple, no more extra payment for 2-years war... moreAnd all of that warranty will be gone when the temperature goes below 0... Useful?
if they do so, it could repeat the history like the Mac os 7, Apple almost close down till Steve jobs back

The way it is written implies that Apple is betting billions right now from licensing. It isn't...and it won't in the future.
Apple are a bunch of greedy people,I personally would never buy anything apple,I really don't like how they conduct themselves.
Simy, 29 Dec 2011Yeah, sure. 10$ for some stupid non-crucial patents like overscroll bounce or slide to unlock.... moreSlide to unlock was developed by a small but innovative phone company called Neonode. Long before the iphone was even launched. Unfortunately Neonode did not patent it. Apple did because Neonode went out of business. Apple have patented so much that is the work of other people and companies. They will fall hard real soon. As they say,the wheel turns
