The Future Post: A judge has put a temporary ban on sales of the Galaxy Nexus in the United States after Apple claimed Samsung copied some of its technology used in the iPhone.
I hope apple loses...this patent stuff is childish.
Yeah, It's absolute bullshit. Frivolous patents just to earn money from others success. Instead of friendly competition and innovation, we're getting child's play. And paying money for it.
apple probably spent a whole load of money in R&D, so for them to protect their own property is understandable.
The same can be said otherwise for any other cellphone maker... and I am pretty sure Apple's concepts are not exactly the most novel of ideas... the reality is that some ideas are totally made from scratch, but others sometimes pass from hand to hand and get developed into something better as time passes on.
I agree. In order to spur innovation, you need access, and you can't innovate if every single time you turn around you're getting sued for so-called "patent infringement." Bottom line, everyone steals, but ultimately it's what they do with what they've stolen that determines whether it constitutes theft or the means toward achieving innovation; otherwise referred to it as "evolution."
Well, Apple learned their lesson from the past. M$ ripped their UI for Windons OS.. and made billions. Apple is too smart to let it happens again. Innovation is when you came something new. Google Android was never touchscreen OS. Eric Schimts was on Apple board, and learned Apple iOS and just ripped from them. This is more attacked on Google because Samsung is using Google Android...
When did Apple filed patent.. not when it was shown...
Apple has such an inferiority complex. They're afraid to compete.
This is getting ridiculous now, Apple is suing literally every company, and the dumb thing about it is that they are still the market leader, so they have nothing to worry about.
they dont care to apple its all about money
We can't even get a source to the info?
It's regarding this patent http://patft.uspto.gov/neta... but what else do you want? It's just an injunction.
This is good for Apple. If you can't beat them, join them. :)
How does that even make sense? Or should we settle for lack of innovation?
settle lack of innovation? Samsung and GOOGLE are the one with lack innovation... they copied, if you actually reads up how Andriod came touchscreen iOS, then you will understand.
I bet you if Samsung and Google weren't around, we would be paying twice the price for those iPhones you all adore.
Apple is becoming Microsoft (suing everyone left and right).
lol microsoft? when did microsoft become Apple? Apple is beyond microsoft Apple is becoming a Whiny Bitch that what Apple is become.
MS and Apple have the same beginning. So it's not really surprising why Apple is acting like a dumb suing every competitors they know.. And yes MS is also doing the same thing with Google, suing them and claiming that some of the Androids OS components are from MS's and Google just copied it.. Unfortunately MS won in the legal battle so what really happen in todays competition, every android devices that has been sold, there's a $5 royalty fee for Microsh!t..
This stupidity is getting out of hand. People nowadays want to sue just for basically anything. This is ridiculous.
good good , anyway all the US needs is iPhone ... that's the way of a police state , one thing for all .. let the rest of the world enjoy the different , colorful phones :P
Most of apples components are from Samsung, so Samsung should cut their supply and demand to shut these stupid fruity idiots up.
I'm sick of Apple's anti-competitive attitude..
Can somebody sue everybody at Apple for being retarded ? It would be case of the year
No, Apple already has a patent for that.
This will only benefit galaxy nexus to gain some more popularity !!
heres a novel solution for apple to stop all this patent war shit....
Apple should only sell their products in USA and nowhere else and let other manufacturers sell worldwide.
iv never once heard of nokia suing moto/htc/blackberry or vice versa over patent shit until Apple entered the mobile market.
Samsung provide apple with the Iphone processors I believe; wish they'd turn around and refuse to that would be amusing albeit short-lived still... and all their court cases ver them "looking similar" Irony is that Samsung had/have actually used that design first before the iphone stuff was even patented I saw an old MP3 player from late 9090'3/early 2000 made by Samsung that had that oblong shape with a home button (optical selector thing to move through songs etc so technically apple stole that design off Samsung :p
Apple is rubbish
Its sad that this happen, but Microsoft is being sued to. Which means a 360 ban in the US (well until Microsoft makes a 360 without Wifi).
