Trooper, 10 Jun 2014Where did you pull that rubbish from ?, you just haven't got a clue.You should read the news sometime if you don't think this happens.
Sure apple keeps suing, and pretty sure Samsung keep losing. What are you missing from this?
Someone, 10 Jun 2014
And Apple is in the innovation game? LOL.
Windows and Google tell us otherwise.
Apple ... moreOh how right you are. Explain to me what patents are and how they are filed?
Hahaha innovation by Apple (i am kidding). You are laughing with samsung that they copy apple and know with split screen multitasking copy of apple you call it innovation. Funny apple boys.

Samsung note has SAME feature from 2 years ago. Seems apple is copying samsung jajjaaa. After steve jobs dead, apple is a low quality chinese manufacturer jajaa
This is based on this Ipad app called Desktop.
Apple had been very aggressive at coping Android and Samsung.
Apple is the real copycat company
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2014Wonder why Apple having patents is such a big deal too. Google, Microsoft all have massive pat... moreKeep your mouth close please!
Apple is known for stealing ideas and Steve Jobs admitted he stole massive ideas!
Apple copied from Samsung. This one is for real and for sure. But the complaint that Samsung copied apple is garbage. Ok trolls bring the hate on.
Mr Gray, 10 Jun 2014Why is it a big deal too? I dont know. Lol! It wasnt me who started talking about patents thou... moreLol no worries, somebody else started talking about it.
Anyway, discussions like this are better, both sides presenting arguments, in relatively respectful tone.
Hope that in the long run, this is the dominant style.

And I'm tired of typing now. So there.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2014thats a gimmick not really a great feature lolsome developer got very sad when he read this post :D
Mr Gray, 10 Jun 2014"Fact is, it is a generic feature that does not distinguish the device"
If its su... moreWonder why Apple having patents is such a big deal too. Google, Microsoft all have massive patents of their owns.
Apple doesn't even have the most too, I think that award goes to IBM:
Patents are a tool, and can be used as protection, which is totally needed these days, or abused. Judging by the history of Samsung products for example, I feel that Apple were justified in going all out against them.
One forgets quickly how hot the tension was between Sony and Samsung during the mobile phone wars. Samsung have had this bad reputation for a long time.
Acey K, 10 Jun 2014And once again, Apple copies something that existed on Android for almost forever and now will... moreYep, they are feeling the pressure!
Android tablets have becoming increasingly better. 1 or 2 years ago I wouldn't considered buying anything but an ipad, now I would never buy one and I made my choice between the Z2 tablet and the Galaxy Note 2014.
Even Asus as some great and much more cheaper tablets.
Sony tablets have far better looks than ipad and are lighter, sampling have amazing resolution screens and Spen which I have been told is great for multitasking and Asus and Google nexus have great prices. All of them are good with updates. So I wonder why anyone would buy an ipad nowadays if besides all that it has no proper multitasking, needs very expensive connector cables and has near zero compatibility with non Apple systems.
Apple needs to catch up and fast.
They can copy that feature all they like. Apple hasn't implemented it yet, because they most likely found out that even with their latest hardware it won't run smoothly. With only 1gb of ram and a dual core 64 bit CPU can only do so much. They need to double the ram as well as increase the CPU (higher clock and/or more cores).
Mr Gray, 10 Jun 2014Who cares about LG sales and Samsungs? Are we even talking about that??
Again,its ABOUT tha... moreOk, that? Easy. If the split screen feature is patented and not covered by FRAND, then Apple can be sued. If not patented, then it's fair game.
Open and shut.
