"patent number 8,086,604 ('604). It basically refers to a device being able to search multiple sources through a single interface (Apple's Siri)."
-That makes no sense. Apple in no way shape or form has a patent for this. IF someone made a direct siri copy it might hold some ground.
"5,946,647 (actionable linking)"
-They acquired that and 99% sure only to sue people
they are just little cry babies and why are the so relentless on attacking samsung if these are features all phones use? Cause samsung is whiping the floor with them.
What about the monopoly that apple is? What about the fact the iphone itself is bought and many stolen parts and ideas. That's allowed?
apple went from the top to the bottom once already, and it will go again, it's their destiny, mark my words...
It's obivious that a patent of slide to unlock can't be aproved. Why they aprove Apple's stupid patents???
Patenting Slide to unlock is like patenting the wheel.
piyush prakash, 30 Jun 2012First Galexy Note 10.1 And Now Nexus...It Is Just The Begining.....Next In Line Would Be Galex... moreIt was actually the whole first generation of the galaxy tab series that was banned in the us due to hardware patents. But they lost that since the supplier was Samsung itself. Seriously apple is so stupid to think that they can win this case without bringing in the other manufacturers and eventually there being no part manufacturers who will do business with them.
mr.Assimo, 01 Jul 2012For me, Apple is a true innovator interms of computer history especially when they released th... moreYou do know of course that Apple's Lisa computer was only a success because Apple stole the idea of the GUI from Xerox because it's Inventor Bill English was trusting enough NOT to patent it? Little did he know what a bunch of hypocrites the Apple company were to become.
Just think that if he had Patented his brilliant idea (not strictly his because it can be traced back to NASA in the 1960s)we wouldn't even know the name Apple for what it is now.
The more apple reacts over Samsung products innovation, the more people believed that apple already lost the battle over Samsung in smart phone. Instead apple should come with new Iphone 4.5 inch (3.5-4.0 inch screen already passed)
apple its down ............... an galaxy up.galaxy nexus it is the best phone ever...!!!!
THIS IS RIDICULOUS. How are you supposed to unlock a touch screen smartphone, apple? Licking it???
Some (most) of apple patents are abusuve. Slide to unlock shouldn't be patented.
What's next apple? Patents of our taps on the screen???
whatever said and done its only after apple came the real smartphone/tablets came into existences...they are leaders in innovation and they deserve every right to protect their interest of business.
Ok now will buy only apple in the US not oranges or other fruits. Happy appleing :)) losers
xcal, 01 Jul 2012I dont like android and i even dont like samsungs tv. I like iphone, ipad and mcbook and LG tv... morecorrection...
Android phones are for those people who wants to trash their iPhone.
People go on about patents but what if Apple decide to patent breathing..They are that obssesed with patenting stuff thats been in folks life for over a decade why not..The only reason other companys did not patent such things is because of freedom and open source which Apple have decided to kill.
If apple does patent breathing how are they going to put it into every day action with every person breathing on the planet unless you are dead. How Are they going to enforce it in the most hospitable places like deserts..
Companys did not patent stuff like apple do because its so pathetic and we have used these search terms for over a decade but Apple decides to patent it..
Open source is their to help us all out with not neccessarily free stuff all the time but allowing us ALL to progress in our lives..
APPLE is here to halt the progress of tech and stop us all enjoying ourselves..Apple is a very greedy company charging the earth for its products.
Just one more time,other companys failed to patent what Apple has done because it stifles all of us and stops progress..Apple has therfore stunted progress with its childish claims..Period (as they say)..
Today I will buy a new Galaxy 3 for my beloved wife
it costs me 220 BD which is equal to 587 USD
I think it is good price for such phone.
my wife like it very much. But me I don't like it also I don't like Iphone. In my opinion HTC is the best nowadays......
I dont like android and i even dont like samsungs tv. I like iphone, ipad and mcbook and LG tvs. who cares about android anyway... Android phones are for those people who wants to trash their phone...
Apple is just so scared. I must admit that their the king in terms of marketing but technology-wise..they're so much behind Android. They're not the first ones to use those things but they're the first ones to "patent" it. Two different things. Then the marketing dept preach them to the sheep and make it look that it's their innovation/invention. Cowards. Here's an article to sum it up, the reasons why Apple was eaten alive and scared of Jelly Bean. lol
