quote: The CPU/GPU that you refer to is based on the design of a CPU/GPU created by ARM

quote: Apple invented capacitive multitouch.
quote: Apple invented the smartphone overnight when it launched the iPhone.
quote: The SGX543MP2 is not designed by Apple...Imagination Technologies (PowerVR) designed that.
quote: Apple lightly massaged the ARM Cortex A9 and packaged it with an off-the-shelf GPU.
quote: And if you think a dual core 800Mhz A9 is the fastest mobile CPU...it's not.
quote: Apple innovates some things. Other people innovate some things. I have a better-working but less folksy version of Siri on my OG droid that's in the closet.
quote: I can name one innovation from other phone manufacturers...LED screens...which Apple does not have. They have LED lit LCD screens, but Samsung uses organic LED lit (AMOLED) screens. They have the highest resolution tablet screen (and I have the iPad3), but Samsung and LG designed that

quote: They make some great stuff and I even own some of their stuff (iPad3, MBA), but they are not the be-all-end-all.
quote: 1) Apple isn't banning anyone over copying their CPU/GPU design now are they? No, they are trying to block an HTC phone because of a patent they had no rights to in the first place.
quote: 2) The highest resolution, yes. Is it usable? No
quote: Resolution means nothing if half the pixels are black during usage
quote: All they did with the iPad 3rd gen is take an iPad 2, double the GPU and quadruple the resolution
quote: When Apple comes up with new technology that I haven't seen before THEN I will be impressed. Something like Wireless HDMI. THAT'S innovation. Thunderbolt. THAT'S innovation.
