Zzzzzz, 30 Jun 2012I say Google should ban apple products from using google services. Yeah,right! You couldn't have put it any better!
AnonD-61309, 01 Jul 2012Samsung lack innovation they are copy cat apple still the master of smartphone u and i know th... more"apple will change the face of smartphone tech"?--- I think you're dreaming buddy!!!!!!!!!! Also you say that samsung lack innovation?--- I advise you to stop dreaming and face reality.
i think its time to start filing millions of frivolous patents and wait for apple to infringe upon them and then cash in.
im personally using samsung galaxy s 2 and recently bought new samsung s 3 from india for 38500 inr. Im just in love with it. But really i feel samsung is copy cat all source code have stolen from apple. They cant innovate anything only knows how to copy and i have used samsung 620 tablet it really sucks but ipad is superb it way better than samsung tab. Samsungs tab will not get any love from anywhere. Last and final thing samsungs market is up just because of android znd now google acquired mototola fully so in coming months google will be partial to all manufacturers its because they want to be number 1 manufacturer in world in cellphone both in software and hardware. Samsung hardware is so bad as compared to nokia. No1 can compare nokias hardware with samsung. Nokia is just behind because of software if nokia will bring good software than it will beat each and everyone. At the end of the day father is father it rules for 15 years in industry. Do you all think nokia will keep its nouth shut its just silentt for some reasons.

Since the tech world is moving so fast, companies should be given temporary patents, those which are valid for 2 years or something. That way, if you dont innovate, you go under...
The more you tell someone they can't have something the more they will want it. So Apple are really promoting Samsung by all this action, people will just see it as Apple trying to ban a superior product. Akin to shooting themselves in the foot.
Jay, 30 Jun 2012Seriously, I am not sure Apple should have been given the 'Slide To Unlock' patent...It is stu... moreSamsung should seek a ban for iPhone 5 as soon as it comes out, coz it will have a 4 inch screen, just like Galaxy S...
Not good market practice, Apple. Drop it...
This is ridiculously funny. Infringement on word prediction. My Sony Ericsson T610 had word prediction, it was called T9 Predictive Text input. They should never have allowed Apple to patent this. It just shows how silly it all becomes when they allow the patenting of pretty much anything.
The rest of the patents Apple accuses Samsung (and Google) of infringing are patent 5,946,647 (actionable linking), patent 8,046,721 (slide-to-unlock) and patent 8,074,172 (touch screen word suggestion).
patent 8046721 ( slideto unlock )
motorala razr, sony xperia arc, sony xperia s, lg black
all these phones require u to slide up or down or ever across to unlock the screen so my question to apple and judge lucy koh why haven't you banned the phones from being slod in the us.
the rest of the other patent are a joke they have been around before apple ever made phones. how can they let apple patent things they never invented only copied so judge lucy koh please explain that to me.

It's apple who allowed google to put their chrome browser in apple appstore. But I admit Chrome browser is my default browser now. :))
I don't understand why google hasn't sued apple for the notification. They copied that directly from android. Apple's way of cut-throating competitors is stupid and ridiculous.
"Apple accuses Samsung (and Google) of infringing"
WOW! After Google allowed Apple to use Chrome (coolest browser at the moment IMO) on there devices few days earlier, now, they're suing them. Apple's market strategy really su*k!
Apple has 2 products, the 4 and the 4s. And they are suing everybody for little patients like "slide to unlock"and stuff. Grow up Apple.
i think apple needs more funding to invent something that they need to sue Samsung to get some money quick. or they are out of things to invent cause no more stevejobs skills anymore then apple goodbye.
This will be a never ending battle of patency...
tsk tsk tsk... i would say Apple scores 1 over Samsung.
One thing i hate about Samsung is they create and create
multiple models and leaving them unsupported for future updates. unlike Apple that they can still update even a 3-year old device that they released.
Apple may not be the creator of those things that they patent, but when you think that they made it run smoother and better I think its just fair enough to claim a patent on it.
Samsung on the other hand is a very good manufacturer. and very kind for Apple for producing Apple's processor lol!
