Really??"Ahrendts used her own personal experience with her children to introduce a new Apple Watch sales tactic. Ahrendts told employees that the Apple Watch is “the greatest back to school item this year” as it can be used in the classroom without a teacher seeing, unlike with a larger iPhone. “I don’t think the teachers have caught on to the Watch yet,” Ahrendts said, adding that retail staff should tell students to “jump on it before the teachers do.”
Great find sir and I agree with you, it still applies today.
IDC did report "bad news" for Android OEM's back in May when they predicted an overall slowing China market but a fast-growing one for Apple. Their market share report back in February was also very positive for Apple and not-so-much for Android OEM's.I think that blog sites sometimes make market reports sound more negative than they really are hoping to get page clicks.
Which companies specifically would those be?
There's not just one Google patent involving audio and bone conduction. There's dozens of 'em, most fairly recent but some going back aways. Seems to be an important research area for them.https://www.google.com/search?tbo=p&tbm=pts&hl=en&q=bone+conduction+audio+inassignee:Google&num=10&qscrl=1&gws_rd=sslApple's most recent filing is not their only one...
Well of course ideas are not patentable. Ideas have NEVER been patentable. The SCOTUS ruling didn't change it. What it did do was begin roping in the runaway patenting of methods and processes "on a computer" which IMO should not have been allowed to begin with. The USPTO is now changing its examination of those types of patents because of recent judicial actions.So absolutely yes, courts are increasingly leaning towards restricting the patentability of software just as I...
I'm afraid you are incorrect.http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=56c7a189-e138-4016-85dd-16d3e90a7322It's not the first time the USPTO has been found to be "doing it wrong" and probably won't be the last.EDIT: Keep an eye on the Planet Blue case. Unlike simple business method patents this case involves very specific and "tangible" claims rather than anything abstract. Yet the District Court has already ruled the patent claims to be ineligible. It's now in appeal...
Are algorithms real property like a computer chip or knife or wheel? No sir they aren't. There's your difference and the primary reason software wasn't even deemed patentable until the mid to late '60's. Here's a very good background history and discussion about it.http://www.bitlaw.com/software-patent/history.html"on a computer" is not a good reason to offer patent protection for mathematical solutions IMHO, an opinion increasingly shared by the judiciary.
This article is a simple plain English argument against software patents.http://cplus.about.com/od/thebusinessofsoftware/a/patents.htm...and a bit more detailed argument against them:http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/com/hearings/software/sanjose/sj_stallman.html
Fun fact connected to that. Many here probably remember the Apple notification sound "Sosumi" from back in the day. Yup, Apple wasn't supposed to create music per the Apple Music settlement. The name is a play on that.... "So Sue Me".
