Because of this news, out of nowhere AAPL dropped almost $11 today. Even investors are very tired of this nonsense lawsuit, instead they put all energy on innovating their products.
Samsung S4 is top1 seller phone this year, thats why apple try to block the success with patents. Unfortunately, S4 is the best phone in the market by far. Android rules the market for next 5 years.
The current Apple CEO should be fired!
Since he took over from Steve, he changed the company's vision from product innovation to lawsuit against top competitors.
Inside Apple, it has more numbers of lawyers than engineers. Each day these suckers analyze patent infringement that they can make to against Google, Sammy, HTC, LG ..etc
Since then the reputation of Apple has been tarnished and loosing respect each day.
Hey Apple stop all this nonsense and be a man.
Apple will u stop this STUPID law suits and concentrate on making profit before you become the next "nokia" or "blackberry"?
By the time the lawsuit comes up for hearing samsung will have launched the s5 n s6 too. Unless samsung starts its flagship with a new design Apple is gonna sue each one of them. Both are dumbf$€£s
Come on Apple! Be a man!
Since the departure of Steve Jobs, I feel Apple is a company running by a pool of pathetic lawyers.
I completely agree to you pal, Apple has made these Patent Lawsuits a practical joke. Even the federal judge is now fed-up of their tantrums. And with every Lawsuit, Apple loses the respect in my eyes. Why not play on an even field where both the parties get an equal chance for competing.
what a f**king pathetic attempt to try and knock the sales of the s4, apple clearly has concerns about its market share and the way the company is progressing there should be more concern if they continue to push the stupid patent lawsuits, they have f**k all to base their argument, if they spent more time on R&D and less on lawsuits they may actually be able to produce a device that has genuine potential, most other manufacturers just go about their business, even samsung was not bothered about legal wranglings until they kept getting targeted, apple is the a real rubbish company when it comes to this kind of behavior and leads the way in in how it tries to beat the competition, disgraceful from an arrogant ott company with lack of innovation and direction.
This is Apple's new business strategy.
make money with lawsuits, since shares are down
and innovation has seized, might as well keep the
cash flow going with Patent law suits.
They are obviously going to against something physical on the S4, that they think violates the iphone patent, cause it's sure not going to be software and the cool features, cause Samsung thought about those first.
Apple please! stop this nonsense and start working, i'm so f*****g tired of this, and what's next? they will try to add the galaxy camera to the lawsuit?
AnonD-8044, 14 May 2013They are both as bad as each other,but,Samsung is trying to get away from Android so its NOT r... moreSamsung without Google equals bankruptcy, maybe not immediately, because they made tons of money these years, but soon...
And by the way, that Tizen OS looks boring and it's a bad copy of Android. And then, they will get sued by Google too. Nice one! They should stay with Google if they want success.
askmanas, 14 May 2013Can you please explain what they copied from LG??Design for their first smartphones and features. Why do you think Samsung says nothing about the LG Optimus G Pro if it looks that similar with the Note 2? They probably have an agreement with LG, otherwise Samsung would have sued them immediately. But the real reason why they didn't sue them is because they know that they too copied LG at the beginnings, when advanced smartphones were few with LG being top dog.
Why did you people keep on blasting LG just for their lack of updates(this is not the case anymore) and you don't give them the credits they deserve, because without them you wouldn't have so many phones to choose from.
AnonD-53679, 14 May 2013@askmanas: The LG Prada was the first well designed phone with capacitive touchscreen, it got ... moreActually. If you finish your research instead of rushing to a conclusion half way through. You'll see that both the lg Prada and the first iPhone were both announced in January 2007. So how exactly did they copy a phone and put a working version on a worldwide stage with Steve jobs showcasing it in the same month?
They didn't copy and both companies were working on a capacitive screened phone at the same time.
They are both as bad as each other,but,Samsung is trying to get away from Android so its NOT reliant on Google AND Apple is moving away from Samsung with its chips.
Apple copied Timescape, samsung copied floating touch. But sony is just silent about it and focused themselves in developing more features. Love sony.
Don't even care, Apple have no grounds to ban the S3 or the S4. They're just trying their luck.
