Apple has many lawsuits against Samsung. The court in The Hague has said Samsung is guilty on infringing 1 patent of Apple, which causes that the Samsung Galaxy S, S II and Ace are banned in Europe.
What the?? this is going too far.
Rape. The world is too afraid to report it.
apple are the ones who should get their products removed, what they did is outrageous!
I don't understand how the Hague court can ban something across the whole of Europe, the German court which banned the something got over ruled by the high German court as they can't do a EU wide ban of a non EU made product. I don't think that is what even that web page has on it as the translation is very bad half way through I would say it might cause Samsung products to be stopped but unsure really. This wouldn't have hit the courts yet anyway as I think it was a 28th or Aug date which means a sept 13th ban date. It's only the 26th now.
Lots of international distribution in Europe go trough Dutch settlements. That is why the Dutch court is allowed to ban a product trough all of Europe.
Take it a certain company got jealous seeing people probably choose Samsung's cheaper phone over theirs... What ever happened to healthy competition?
Healthy competition never existed in the world of business. And this is pathetic. Fuck Apple.
"Samsung is infringing on Apple's patent on scrolling through a photo gallery using finger gestures on a touch screen." shouldnt all touch screen phones then be banned. i dont own a samsung but my looking at my htc, i am doing that. whats next apple? did you patent the idea that i cant scroll my menu by finger gestures? FUCK YOU APPLE - HERES THE FINGER TO YOU!!
funny thing is, that's similar to a mouse click. Apple is reaching. And got away with it.
I would argue that their whole tile icons UI is exactly like Windows has been forever. Hence all portable Apple devices should be banned.
im just thinking here, its a touch screen right, so samsung should advertise it and tell people they can scroll with their chin, not finger gestures. then i wanna see apple sue the entire world for scrolling with their fingers.
What apple are doing is wrong but ios 5 has taken some things from android and windows phone 7 so when its put on sale both microsoft and google need to sue apple and get there product put on hold. I really hope his apple bubble burst soon and android and windows phone 7 take overe mobile market from apple and that android and windows 8 takes over the tablet market. Apple are getting too big for there boots and hey need splitting up like the usa did to microsoft. In away im glad jobs has left apple. What he has done wih hem is amazing but i think with iut him they could lose there way like ms did when bill gates steped down but apple dont have a pc os and office to save them.
totally agree with you. i found out after buying the 5th gen ipod what Apple products are all about...STATUS!! thats it. their pricing of the products compared to what you get is ridiculous. not only are there better phones than the iphone on the market, but there are better mp3 players, tablets etc. i wish apple would die. WM, android, symbian, rim should just be the major players. reason is they all try to innovate. Apple stifle, limit and try to control as much as they possibly can. its sickening.
its because of the animation, funny thing is they lost on design patents basiccaly trying to claim total ownership to black rectangles. also samsungs defence was epic http://cdn.tipb.com/images/... prior work, inother words they didnt copy apple and apple cant hold a design patent on the ipad shape apples tryign to force people into only having iphone ipod i pad as an option and its wrong
everyone knows what i am about to say... top tier in the techspy apple haters. apple is gonna get theirs rome wasnt built in a day but its pretty dam destroyed in 2011.
It's because of android 2.x It says that if they update it to android 3.x, selling it will be allowed again.
Capitalism 101.. destroy your competition. Ethical no but he who makes the most money wins.
Capitalism works. Just not in countries that like to eliminate competition apparently.
Just another reason for me to hate Apple and their over rated and over priced products.
This would never happen in the U.S. "I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know my Samsung Galaxy Phone won't be banned" Here in the U.S. Samsung would just have to pay Apple a random fee and they would be golden.
