That's correct. I don't think copying is the way to success myself altho many many companies would disagree with me and have money in the bank from doing so to prove it.Here's an article from about a year ago and things have not gotten any better in Apple patent claims since then.http://www.fosspatents.com/2014/04/in-49-months-of-holy-war-apple-has-not.html
Ummm, that particular rule only applied to unique German rules governing IP. In the US there's a 12 month grace period I believe, not that it matters. Even then that was an outlier as Apple applies for patents on nearly everything they come up with whether a product is planned or not don't they? Apple's biggest issue is that a very high percentage of the patent claims Apple has chosen to assert in lawsuits, nearly every one as a matter of fact, have been found invalid in...
You don't think they'd buy an Apple Watch anyway? Wouldn't a celebrity having enough faith in the product to buy it be better than a celeb wearing it because it was given to them? I would have thought so but perhaps not I guess as I'm absolutely certain Apple knows exactly what they're doing.
ah, way to dodge and weave sir.
There's folks here that have said they'd prefer to pay for a service if it meant no ads. I would think Google would get props for moving ever so slightly away from relying so heavily on ads and user monetization and instead charge (and pay royalties) for things like music and video.
http://time.com/3815196/youtube-paid-subscription-no-ads/"YouTube said Wednesday (April 8th) it will soon launch a new subscription-based service that will let users watch videos on the website without annoying ads interrupting the clips.The streaming video website, which is owned by Google, reportedly disclosed the planned paid service in an e-mail sent to producers of top video content and obtained by various media outlets."
Is that significantly different than this:"In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Apple website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you...
Are they selling any data at all, even anonymized? Not that I know of. From everything I've read whatever Google thinks they know about your interests is kept to themselves and used to deliver more personalized advertising results. Not so different than Apple does with iAd. I've not read that they sell it to 3rd parties so they can use bypass Google's advertising placement and do it themselves without any more help from Google. That wouldn't even make business sense...
