quote: Apple has pretty much stopped innovating in the phone space.
quote: Because of that they're aggressively defending their previous innovations, many of which weren't really theirs or were trivial, and taking advantage of a broken system that allows them to patent those things.
quote: Hopefully Apple will get its arse handed to it and the patent system will be torn down and rebuilt into something fit for purpose. Can't really see Koh helping with that though...
quote: How can an invention by you not be yours.
quote: slide to unlock: used for centuries to lock doors, not a real invention, let alone innovation - patented by Apple
quote: rectangle: used for centuries, pretty simple, rectangular tablets have been used in sci-fi for decades, dating back to the 50's on TV and in movies, even further than that in books by Robert Heinlein and Issac Asimov (one such item described in Second Foundation in pretty good detail) - patented by Apple
quote: icons on a screen: used for decades on all sorts of computer interfaces. It's kind of a "no duh" default interface for many things - patented by Apple as their "iPhone and iPad experience"
quote: All things Apple claims as an "innovation". They clearly exploit the patent system. They didn't invent any of it. They don't even come close to deserving anything for this. It's not innovation, it's taking what the customer wants and presenting it to them. It's what has been asked for by customers for decades. To claim this as "innovation" is like claiming pairing scrambled eggs with bacon is "innovation." Talk about super lame. Apple is exactly that.

quote: Apple invented pretty much every innovation in the phone space.Stopped innovating? Have you seen iOS 6? Better voice recognition? Vector maps? Canned message replies? Facebook integration?
quote: Not gonna happen. I predict a complete U.S. ban. Then you suckas will be purchasing iPhones -- well, those of you who aren't trolls on welfare and can actually afford one (which i guess isn't many Android users).Otherwise enjoy your food stamps, smelly droidtards.

quote: Apple believes that the best way to make profit is to sue everyone else out of existence.
quote: And ???? Not everyone buys something.
quote: I find it funny that people call Apple's copying of Sci-fi concepts
quote: lol, of course someone can invent a warp drive... you can begin your debate after someone invents it and then sues someone else that does the same thing...THAT is the analogy, please try to think
quote: (In case you were wondering, they didn't, as that was invented back in the mid-90's.)
