It expires in 2016.
Sure you can do it, but seems pretty useless.
The Apple rumor claims their "smartwatch" will presumably have it's own SIM. That's somewhat akin to combining an iPhone and a watch. That the resultant price might approach and even exceed $1000 shouldn't be a surprise. Samsung's similarly-rumored-to-soon-ship SIM-enabled version of their watch has been estimated to be no less than $850 or so.
Easy. I Google it.
FWIW Android's implementation (linkify) predates iOS's use of it, going back to before the first Android phone ever came to market. In fact Linkify code development dates back to at least 2006, probably even earlier.http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2008/03/linkify-your-text.htmlIf DED is correct data-tapping didn't appear in iOS until v3 in 2009. That wouldn't matter as far as the patent itself is concerned of course but if the timelines are correct Google certainly...
Google claims exactly that. I've no idea what Samsung says about it. It's obviously a nice idea, but as you say the details are all in the implementation.FWIW a large portion of the claims from Apple's patent, #13 and and 15-31, were tossed aside a couple years back by the USPTO after a likely Nokia challenge which Apple has appealed to the Federal Circuit. Unless those claims were to be reinstated Google's method of creating much the same Android function is reportedly...
Edit: Let me try that again. Cpsro, AppAnnie depends heavily on and is widely used by iOS developers. They're hardly a biased pro-Android resource but here's two others using Distimo for the data source. http://www.developereconomics.com/android-monetisation-myth/ http://techcrunch.com/2014/01/23/app-revenue-in-asia-grew-a-massive-162-in-2013-driven-by-google-play/ The takeaway from the dramatic increases being seen in Google Play revenue over the past 12 months or so?...
Here's a shred.By December of last year Japan had finally overtaken the US in App Store revenue. Yes Japanese smartphone/tablet users spend more on apps than buyers in any other country. So how do Google Play and Apple's App Store compare in revenue from their Japanese customers? Neck and neck, completely counter to "everyone knows Android owners don't spend...
Many stay for years? Huh.Agree with the basic premise of your post tho. Apple may not need (or want) most of 'em after the deal is done and the tech absorbed.
I think most who bought Moto's StarTac back in the day knew exactly what they got too. One of my favorite all-time phones.
