Robert Calancea, 07 Mar 2012totally agreeI agree wholeheartedly. Let all their competitors sue them and here's hoping they go bust! It would serve them right! They did not invent everything, contrary to what they seem to try and fool everyone in to believing.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2012but the whole touch screen logics like bouncing dragging swiping were first seen in apple ipho... moreExcept...
once upon a time In computerland apple sued the mighty Microsoft because apple claimed to have invented the gui as ripped off by windows. Apple were in turn sued by Xerox, who probably did invent the GUI as ripped off by apple
Anyway no one, apart from the lawyers made anything out of this because the judge ruled that you can't patent the concept of a GUI
When I use the GUI on a phone I am just using my finger to perform functions that I would alternatively have typed on a keyboard or entered using a mouse
Apple definitely didn't invent the touch screen
Moto and Samsung should tell them to get stuffed. Seems like Apple are clutching at straws here. Apple are going to end up in exactly the same situation as they did in 1997 (ie bust). It won't happen this year or next, or even in 10 years, but it will happen, their business model dictates it.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2012but the whole touch screen logics like bouncing dragging swiping were first seen in apple ipho... moreApple was far from the first manufacturer with a touch interface. They were the first product to use a capacitive touchscreen, while other companies were using a resistive one to cater to asian customers.
Apple was the first company to push smartphones to a large audience, but technically, there was nothing new in the iPhone.
This is jst downright low of apple,all this suing & legal battles is jst a waste of money,i like both apple & android but apple shud try to move forward in inovation & technology instead of wasting money trying to sue android & samsung,or mayb they jst scared that android is gona be unstoppable if they dont use these tactics,jst saying? think abt it?spend more time in d labs (R&A)ing, instead of wasting precious time in legal battles of the courts
Avoid apple guys, show them their pathetic legal move will cost them their customers base.
Imagine these pathetic legal move from apple
-swipe to unlock
-look and feel
-something about multitouch
-and many generic legal crap
I have been using Pocket PC and Tablets ten years ago and it is essential very similiar to devices today and yet apple has the nerve to own everything.
hahaha now they knew that they will lose that's why they changed their plans....To Samsung and Motorola, do not accept and just make changes to the devices
but the whole touch screen logics like bouncing dragging swiping were first seen in apple iphone... We can see that in the keynote of the first ever iphone... The drag features and swiping features were later introduced by other devices i agree with apple
I'm not a Android Fan but I hate greedy companies like Apple. This is just another reason to hate them more.
Apple's time will come soon, no one wins for ever and innovation is not yet patented by Apple .
Android with new OS's coming and getting better & Apple realized that can compete.
I think apple has realised the dangers of continuing the patent wars with multiple vendors as well as the mighty google. In response to apples lawsuits all the tech giants r suing apple for infringing their patents. So even if apple does win a few lawsuits,it is loosing much more due to attacks from multiple companies. Moreover nw google is planning to support all android vendors after buying more than 2000 patents from IBM. This cud mean dat apple is likely to be in big trouble. I guess apple is trying to prevent any further damages from sammy n moto while tryin to crush HTC. Later on it cud move one by one on to moto n then onto the biggest android vendor, samsung. But again these r only my thots.
If that stupid patent war stops, and they focus on making better phones, we all win.
HOPE THIS IS THE END OF THE CHILDISH PATENT WAR.
ICS is made to work around all apple patent...
so the only $$$ apple got is 00000.
apparently apple don't have all the money they needed to take down android..... so they goes to plan B.
but it's too late now. android already doing a workaround on lots of things.... the next things apple know is they need Plan C... which is paying google for notification bar.
