The big news in the past year has been the explosion of Google Android handsets and this means our competitors are responding. Because they are not responding with innovation, they’re responding with lawsuits. We have not done anything wrong and these lawsuits are just inspired by our success.
quote: Im going to back Apple (Hell just got few degrees colder) because I believe Google did violate a number of patents to produce a competing product.
quote: Why else is the market flooded with wannabe iPads and iPhones?
quote: I see. Well I guess the cell phone wasn't an innovative invention either ... I mean, that's really just a rip off of a communicator from Star Trek.
quote: then go out and get patents even though even a small check by the patent office would have found some kind of prior art, or found the patents far too generic
quote: 3) To this day no right click.
quote: 4) Heavier laptops than the competition.
quote: 5) Generations behind on processors for their lower end models (Macbook, Mac Mini)
quote: 6) Lackluster HDD options for their higher end notebooks (no 1TB options, no 7200rpm HDDs over 500GB)
quote: 7) No numberpad on their larger laptops
quote: 8) No widespread adoption of 16:9 screen format for their laptops (except the 11" Air)
quote: I am in the future and Apple just refreshed their Macbook Air and discontinued the Macbook. Now all their line except Mac Pro includes Thunderbolt, so eventually number 2 will be FUD. FYI, Mac OS X does not need the most powerful system to handle it.
quote: This is completely a fuddrucker. You have been brain washed from marketing speak. For a desktop or notebook computer consumers should know that a 16:10 is more effective for workspace compared to 16:9. The 16:10 help compensate for the dock or task bar that takes up space. Also the title bar. Marketing thinks 16:9 helps with sales. If you think 16:9 helps with movies, then you are wrong. Movies are in a 2.65 ratio or 53:20. I agree with Apple is to stick with 16:10.
quote: Maybe all the tech companies should "separately" decide to sue Apple in a preemptive Armageddon. I say separately because otherwise it would be collusion and/or possibly some RICO involved. If Apple suddenly found itself in 20-30 patent lawsuits maybe it would change it's tune about how great suing is.
quote: BTW, I think it would be hilarious if HTC got an injunction for it's cross suit while Apple's was lifted by the full panel of judges.
quote: They would if they invented anything, like Apple did.
quote: They would if they invented anything, like Apple did
quote: toymaker for the well-heeled Apple
quote: Windows Home Server 2011, Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials
quote: The reason Google has not so many patents is that up to this time, they were not considered important because the corporate culture was not to try to outpatent the competition but to out innovate them.
quote: Ironically Apple's new building with be the physical manifestation of that term -- nature's perfect infinite loop -- the circle. The company has hired architects with the reputation for being the "best in the world" to design the exotic campus which Mr. Jobs says he hopes will be "best office building in the world", and which city council member Barry Chang remarked would be "most elegant headquarters in the U.S."
quote: Hey, Mick, changing your tune now are you....
quote: Apple hasn't released a handset in over a year. Android has released hundreds in that same span.
quote: I think you and Eric Schmidt are jealous you didn't come up with good ideas and copyright them like Apple did.
quote: Idiots like this don't realize just how easy patents are to get.
quote: If Apple's so uninnovative, huh, how come tens of millions of smart phone buyers are still picking them?
quote: They've released the iCloud, Lion, and a ton of other innovations that are lightyears ahead of competition.
quote: Let me clarify, Apple's phone out-sells any other phone out there when compared one on one. Comparing phones to gaming peripherals isn't really a comparison of value in this discussion.
quote: As for the patent war: what is the point of a patent if you don't take action against the person responsible for infringing on your property.
quote: And with Lion releasing and the iPhone 5 on the way, looks like Apple's firing on all cylinders innovation wise and Google will yet again be trying to copy.
