A patent for a popup that allows you to choose an app to open a file/take an action? Wow, now that's ingenious... Oh wait, Windows and pretty much all OSes have done that before...
wtf!?, 18 May 2012Assuming the reporting is right, is this #$&*# serious? Apple has essentially patented th... moreI'm totally agree w/ you! It's actually an exclusive feature of ICS if i'm not mistaken..
why does apple think they have all the science of the world? think they CAN dominate? they're the ones who should be banned for making patents over something that is so not important. make innovations apple, not domination. well iphone sucks though..
Android has that select an option feature since 2.1! i know because i have a spica and i usually depend on this feature for different purposes (ie. saving contacts or clicking/ saving a web link)! Insane fact is, apple has been patenting at a weird rate (since steve jobs died!)
How many patents Apple hasn't violated so far? And yet Apple expect other brands to respect their useless patents.
I don't know why such a crappy company like Apple isn't in bankruptcy yet, oh wait! I think I know, probably it's due to all of the people that is hypnotized by Apple's Marketing and so they buy their products because they are afraid of trying better products.
Just think about it, what was Apple's answer with the heating issues of the iPad, well they blamed the customer by saying that they weren't holding the iPad correctly and that's why it heated.
Why Apple is incapable of recognizing that their products are rubbish?
The only thing that Apple has ever done well was their slogan "Think Different", and you know what, I thought different and that's why I'm enjoying an HTC One X rather than an iPhone.
I bought my one x the day it went live...I am with AT&T...I'm reading all this news and I think I have a one x that violates apple patents..lol...this phone is awesome...I'm not missing my iPhone 4s at all....
Assuming the reporting is right, is this #$&*# serious? Apple has essentially patented the "select app to open your link" dialog box? Seriously? That functionality isn't even available on iOS!
Ridiculous patenting system.
apple are a loads of fannys and the sooner folk wake up and see how bad this company is the better.From bad cheap manufacturing conditions and causing trouble worldwide, to its overpriced fragile closed circuit phones,apple is bad.
Tizen Takeover, 17 May 2012Blast. You foiled my plot. Ah well lol
This is getting ridiculous the things people can sue... moreIndeed your dreaded plot has been utterly foiled by my first comment. Muha-ha!
on topic: here's an idea - Apple could easily sue the writers and why not the readers of the Bible because somewhere in Genesis there is a story of a woman eating an apple. this is clearly an obscene patent infringement.
Apple's just trying to slow down the competition to reduce the pace they're going at. But it's already too late, android OEMs are going to surpass apple on the hardware side within a year and Android is getting real close to breaking past iOS in overall OS quality.
Apple's only way to stop android is by lawsuits, since it's far better than IOS
Some Guy, 17 May 2012In the future, an imported smartphone to the US must be sold without an OS. This way is not in... moreSadly Apple will sue for some hardware in the phone. The placement of an antenna of the freguency it uses. Smh crApple wouldnt make any money if they didnt ban and sue 4 every good phone that comes out with better specs than their precious iPhone
AnonD-53038, 17 May 2012First! hurray - happy day! yepey!
on topic: Apple is getting too aggressive and i think they ... moreBlast. You foiled my plot. Ah well lol
This is getting ridiculous the things people can sue for. Apple must have hired people just to figure out ways to sue people.
Anonymous, 17 May 2012foreign? LOL Motorola is US :)i Know Motorola is US :)), but i wrote in hurry and there i had 2 ideeas: first that US favors national companies and second, from national companies US favors Apple and no others (e.g. Motorola). That's why Motorola is in that list..my mistake.
I just wish Google would back Motorola & hammer apple with the GSM patent, offer them the option of leaving all Android phone makers alone or stop them using GSM.
I bet apple would soon back down as without GSM the iphone would not exist in any meaningful way.
DrWho, 17 May 2012HTC One, the new Samsung Galaxy S, Moto's and Sony's new phones are all better than the iPhone... moreYou are so right,most of the people that own an iPhone own then based on hear say. Apple has been able to build a good brand name,not necessarily good products.
