very much correct. what i'm pointing out is since android is from google,and apple uses some of google's software, apple can't or chooses not to sue google. but since samsung is a direct competitor..then it's worth a bite from apple's legal sharks. :P
I can't believe that predictive texts on phones and searching on phones weren't patented. They've been included in phones from as far back as tdma cellphones without color screens. That goes to show you how Apple's main goal is not to innovate or even create. Their goal is to patent anything and everything and then become a monopoly.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2012"Because the truth Apple is the one who copied Samsung design F700 and check the release ... moreyou said apple iphone was the first ever smartphone? your wrong by 100 miles
apple made their 1st iphone in 2007 and other company like nokia, samsung, sony ericsson etc made their phones and smartphone well before 2007
and today there wouldn't be any iphones if LG Sued apple for copying the design of the Prada which Released 2007 january and iphone Released 2007, June
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2012"apple is actually afraid of competition since they in the battle b/w s2 and 4s." ... moreIt's because Samsung sales were blocked in some countries by Apple's lawsuit that's why Apple sold more. They are doing it again so that they can sell more again :D
Apple is losing it. Look at all the hype over an iPhone 5 coming out last year and all it ended up being is a supercharged 4s. Android already had 8mp camera phones, android already had dual core phones, android already had voice recognition, which i might add works perfectly fine on my S2. Apple are beginning to fear the reaper so are going on last man standing tactics. And by the way, iPhone 4s sales may have smashed galaxy S2 but iPhone sales didn't outsell android devices. Lets face it if you want iPhone you have a choice of a few different devices in different sizes. If you want android, you have hundreds of choices available. Apple are going with these playground tactics because they know they are are going to be in trouble.
Someone should go and patent the shape of mobile as rectangular in shape or having four sides and then sue apple. I am surprise why palm, HTC or Nokia did not patent the smartphone concept and camera on phone....then we would have got a brick in terms of apple phone....Apple will next patent phone having screens and then sue all phone maker to remove the front screen and replace with buttons only....Aplle is just showing of the money power which is earned by paying peanut to those workers in china. If they whould be less greedy they better put a factory in US and make US made phones even if it is lesser profit and generated enough jobs at home.....instead wasting our hard earned money lying in thier locker for these useless court battles.
The attack google and samsung. Google should delete every search query related to apple, that the completely disappear from google and its search engine.
And samsung should never ever sell displays ans stuff to apple again!
Bodisson, 14 Feb 2012I'm looking at this 4th patent... so Apple invented T9?No. They did not invent it but they sure patented it...
And everyone else just wants Apple to die ASAP!!! Personally I have gone from having no great feelings one way or the other towards them, as a company, to absolutely loathing them with all my being. It is obvious they cannot compete in the market place with appropriate hardware and software. So now just sue everyone in site to try and cover it up. The best way to hide shortcomings is to deflect attention to others and that it how I view these court room antics.
It is also seems obvious they despise Open Standards and worship closed proprietary hardware and software that they totally control. Even that I could handle if they would let others just go about their business. After all what we buy shuld be our choice. I firmly believe that what Apple are really out to achieve is to remove our choice to buy a mobile device from anyone other than them and not just because of finance. They really just want to remove our freedom of choice and tie us in to their way of doing things as they despise the freedom that Andorid reperesents. Hence why they don't go after Symbian or Microsoft devices as they are much more tied down and in line with how they think the mobile world should be. Name one Apple product range that has a wide extensive range of products. As such I view Steve Jobs and whomever is now doing his job as the Adolf Hitler of the mobile world.
instead of putting out the competitors, why not make maore innovations to outwit them. dont think that google companies or other affiliates will just take this lying down. the reason why apple is afraid of android devices is because android is fast progressing and in a few months time android devices will surpass apple's technology. so i suggest that instead of putting up lawsiuts, use your time to think of better ways to improve your products
So the so called innovation of apple is to make patents for human nature making every step of technology a violation of patent, please somebody check on patents that breathing is still free from apple's patent or we will all be paying to do it.

And yes Apple's iOS has been the same for years where as Nokia had the same idea they kept the same software for years and look what happened...Apple will flop sooner or later
'• US Patent No. 8086604 - Universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system.
This refers to searching multiple sources of information on a device from a single means of entry. Apple make reference to Siri specifically, but they argue that the inclusion of text-based entry via the means of Spotlight would be just as viable for grounds of infringement.' I'm sorry how many devices actually have this? pretty much every single device. Apple get over yourselves honestly
dear apple without the "androids" earth would not be balanced. if you all know what i mean ;)
this is just a total crap. really. the A5 chips of apple are being manufactured by samsung and these stupid lawsuits are still on the go? what the heck man. apple company please accept your defeat.

I am very glad to know Apple iPad suffered from lawsuit by a Chinese local company which already registered to use this name in year 2000 long before Apple iPad launched. When Google finish the acquisition of Motorola Mobile we shall wait the fight back of Google to make Apple really a pain. I am neither Android or Apple fans.
If stupid apple were a car manufacturer, they would patent wheels rotating clockwise when a car is moving forward.
