AnonD-49280, 30 Jun 2012"Oh I found out......".You really don't have a clue what you're talking about do you... moreI guess if you're a photographer and you chose amoled for it's color reproduction , you need to consider an eye exam...Not joking.amoled is knows for it's vibrant colors, but not color reproduction..it's not true to the colors captured and displayed back on it.
If you want true color reproduction you want any LCD.or just to it's on par or better than amoled, you want SLCD2.
Stupid Apple. Every company should sue them. From McDonalds to Google. Just for fun. I hope that stupid Apple will die in a few years, together with their crappy overhyped copycat products.
you can hate apple but again the fruit company has shown more innovation in the market....suing when you cannot compete
didnt google guy motorola ? and doesnt motorola own 1000s or 10.000s of patents ? if google wanted they could ban everything in the mobiel industry, but it's counter productive.
Thats right people..it's all just a show from which they all win moeny.the peoples money...it's all just a nice show they put on for the sheeple so that we think there is actualy some real competition going on. But behing closed doors, behind vibration proof windows, in sound proof chambers, deals are beying made for years to come.
Samsung and Google have many devices. One banned, won't harm too much. Just imagine if iPhone 5 is banned by a similar retaliation by Samsung and/or Google, what will happen to Apple??
By the way, the patent office is a bunch of buttheads who approve of ridiculus patents like "Multiple search sources via single interface", "Rectangular touch screen with round button" and the likes.
Google should disable all apple products from searching on their database. Google is king of data and they have an extreme database and if they would prevent apple to use that database then you can throw your ishit in the trash. I hope that Google will fire back at that shitty apple!!
Oh and one more thing. If apple products are so good then why are they worried about other phones and companies if they are so superior with their products? People will buy their (apple) products if their products are so much better than (in this case) Samsungs!!
AnonD-61309, 01 Jul 2012Samsung lack innovation they are copy cat apple still the master of smartphone u and i know th... moreI own a galaxy nexus and I persuaded my wife to get the iphone 4. The nexus really blows the iphone into the dust and makes it look and feel 'old hat' I love the Nexus and my wife is very happy with the iphone.
"Samsung lack innovation they are copy cat apple still the master of smartphone u and i know that apple change the face of smartphone tech."
->Actually Apple have not really innovated but have improved and re-released older tech so they too are not massive innovators
"apple introduce a new tech"
->Sadly... no, they improve existing tech rather than innovate - but lately have been sadly lacking like a ship without a captain RIP SJ.
"ios = android"
->Very silly statements... the software is very different but they are both chasing the same goal which is to allow a user to use a smart phone. Lets remember that Apple did not invent the smart phone - they improved the idea and made it more useable like Android has improved the idea again.
->Siri was just an improvement to voice control on many devices and like all voice control devices is a gimmick to have fun with and then forget about.
"i am not a samsung hater"
->That's not what it sounds like!
"i love truth and justice"
->Ahh... there you are sadly lacking
"Apple... the smoothness,classy, just one product, rocken the world of smartphone."
->Nope... that was a brief period when the iphone 4 came out but was shortly kicked into touch by the many other products out there that are every bit as good and - in the case of the Galaxy Nexus - in a class of their own
"LOVE IT OR HATE IT .........."
->As long as it does what I need I'm happy - don't mind what the brand is... no need to love or hate it
I'd like to say that Samsung (Google) and Apple both make fantastic products which suit slightly different people - my wife likes a much simpler tool that does what she needs and can't (or wont!) do much else and I like a feature rich experience that I have control over and is not locked down - Both of us are very happy so please Apple, stop behaving so badly you do not need to as your product speaks for itself! We like competition and we don't all want an iPhone thank you so let the competition breathe! If you spent a little more time working on your product rather than chasing patents, you might have iOS6 out by now and iPhone 5 delivered.
ps.. if you haven't copied a lot of Android ICS and JB in iOS6, I think you've already lost the smartphone race so get copying and improving Apple - my wife needs you!
STOP PATENT ABUSE APPLE! (If you don't, and ban the future phone I want, I will not be persuading my wife to buy Apple products in the future!)
And to the Judge in this case... Why would you ban a product because a tiny part of it may or may not infringe somebodies patent? Just award Apple some damages based on the actual damage to their market share if they can prove that they have lost out financially. If this was the auto trade, this judge would have us all driving the same look car made by one manufacturer... Pathetic.
Rant Over! (today...!)
fu apple. i was going to buy this phone from play store. and just so you know, getting other phones that people wanted aren't going to improve your sales.
patenting a certain technology and protecting the patent its ok, but if another company infringes a patent there is nothing wrong with that AS LONG AS IT BRINGS SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS TO THAT TECHNOLOGY . And its all legal
You know Motorola invented the mobile phone and they have a lot of patents, once google starts to sue apple wont make phones anymore :))
Apple is becoming pathetic. The patents they registered are so general, it's unbelivable. I wonder when they will register the patent for "circular hubbed rotating assembly"(wheel). Instead of improving their overpriced phone(the Galaxy Ace 2 is almost identical to the Iphone in specs but half the price), they sue companies that make much better products. They eliminate the competition. I one day hope that someone will be able to sue Apple and make the Iphone illegal to sell in the US. Won't that be a kick in the ass
Judge gave the right decision. It is time that samsung (the copyct company) should stop stealing ideas & copying the stuff from apple. Apple is the name of quality & innovation. Sasumg is only good in makin LCDs, whose cocept they also took from sony.
well someone said it very right.."The guys in APPLE know how to MARKET their PRODUCTS, they are best in it, know one does it better than them"..and that is what they are doing..MARKETING GIMMICKS..just so that they would have no competitors..awefully similar to windows
Searching multiple sources at the same time has been Google's forte for ages! It's what Google is all about. The medium--desktop or mobile--is insignificant. The search is happening on the web. The device is just an interface.
It says the infringed patent "basically refers to a device being able to search multiple sources through a single interface (Apple's Siri)."
Why do we let crazy (stupid) lawyers run the world???
The guy who patents "being able fit your mobile device into your pocket" must be the King of the World!
i'm pretty sure if the rotten fruit had the power , it would ban every android device worldwide :)
AnonD-455, 01 Jul 2012When will this nonsense stop? Every single smartphone manufacturer but Apple should join anti-... moreMS-Nokia Agenda. Allow Apple use patent war as a tool to stiffle the competition in Western Markets, especially major innovators like Samsung and HTC (WP8 partners), once there is an Android stagnation, it allow WP8 products push hard into Android territory.
Example. htc One X for AT&T delayed at US customs while Lumia 900 had the day to itself.
