apple can only sue samsung, htc , nokia to win profit. they do not improve their phone.
compare 4s and 5...5 is the same shit as 4s, only one row was added.

The change? Well, people are getting tired of the same thing over and over again. Many have been for quite some time, but previously they ahev been kept locked to alle the add-ons of their iCrap. Now they must get something new anyways. Adapters are not nice.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2012Is this worth a patent?Finally, some sense has prevailed n the USPTO has given the arrogant, greedy.monopolizing b's (Cr)Apple a much needed kick up their rears! These patents shud never hav been issued in d 1st place! (Cr)Apple hav been makin a mockery of the American scientific, logical n judicial systems n it was abt time somethn was done abt ti!
Cruxitiv, 23 Oct 2012Reject call with text? Samsung's had that in their dumb phones for years. You're really funnyin nokia 3310 you can reject call by presing red botton then send a message in green botton! reject call and text it is already in nokia decades before so nokia have a right to sue them all!
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2012not a big deal, iphone 5 brought new innovation again with ios 6 like reject call with txt, aw... moreReject call with text? Samsung's had that in their dumb phones for years. You're really funny
Fianlly, someone woke up. I have an iPad2. My net tablet is a Galaxy Tab2 10.1. Apple can go to the iTrashcan. Used to like Apple, in an aloof way. Now, I downright loathe them. Liitigation's taking their time when they should be Innovating. Booooooh!
OK, some more patents that need to be looked into.
1. Grid of icons. Seriously?
2. Pinch zoom - diamond touch
3. Swipe to unlock - Neonode M's (its a phone which implemented it before the iPhone)
4. Universal search - Been around forever
On the other hand, I don't think Samsung should get completely off the hook - till the S3 generation , their phones were designed to look like the iPhone. I'm not talking about rounded corners. That's absurd. I'm talking about touch wiz. They made the icons look like an iPhone. Worse, did you know that in the original touch wiz, unlike every other android manufacturer, the app drawer couldn't be arranged alphabetical ly? Just like an iPhone..aargh. thank god for third party launchers.
Still, I'm sure no one will miss the death of toichwiz...
not a big deal, iphone 5 brought new innovation again with ios 6 like reject call with txt, awesome notif center, 4" screen and much more that u can found only on ios 6
There was a time when Apple was a name for innovations and devices that made people happy when used no matter how much they hated apple. Ever since the Demise of Steve Jobs, apple seems to be more interested in filing patents and crushing other companies rather than innovating and staying in the lead. Sad.
Apple did not invent apps and touchscreen phones! - Erwan Macé
Hahahaha.... Apple finally gets joked with. Their own country's own patent system has rejected them. :D
On a serious note, they could've been the hope of America by being an ideal company that others could "look up to". But no, the money, the trickery, the legal battles... how can they be ideal?
I blame the iphone 5, I bet the judge that made this ruling got lost bcuz of Apple Maps and took revenge hahahahaha just a beautiful example of how Apple tries to patent things that they didnt invent smh they are so un-original that it hurts. I love that the American courts are finally losing that biased feel that everyone(including myself as an American) was talking about. I can't wait to see what else gets rejected once ppl start doing some digging lol
Disgusted Apple User, 23 Oct 2012I have an iPhone 4 and its been an awesome run, but I'm done with Apple. They have no ethics. ... moreHate the company but not the product. Both company has their fault. May the best phone win for me
Ha! Although I'm glad that Google changed this to overscroll glow, It's much more eye candy.
Most alarming and worrying in this court circus is that the end result is entirely up to just one individual (the judge).
