You've completely left out induced infringement which could apply to Google's offer of Android as the OS. Nice write-up tho. Still doesn't make business sense that Apple would not have gone after Google immediately upon Android's public release if infringement of Apple IP was so clear and convincing. It would have nipped everything in the bud and avoided a whole lot of litigation IMHO if Apple had sufficient evidence to prove their claims. It's not like they haven't had...
Ah, so then you're saying if Schmidt was evil or at least unethical in stayin on at Apple for so long then Levinson was also for staying on at Google, and Bill Campbell was evil/unethical going back and forth "advising" both. Fair enough. So why are two unethical people still allowed to serve on Apple's board?
For whatever reason Apple (or Mr. Jobs) felt it was more important that Schultz remain on the board, just as Google felt it was more important that Arthur Levinson, also an Apple director, remain on their board. They both resigned their positions at roughly the same time, tho Levinson did stick around a bit longer at Google. Was he stealing information on plans for Android and taking it back to Apple even after Schmidt had already resigned? And what about Bill Campbell?...
This is the patent and it's claims:https://www.google.com/patents/US6285999In any event it's not Google's patent nor is it an exclusive license to them alone. Apple is free to negotiate a license from Stanford as is Microsoft or anyone else for that matter. In addition it's not any particular patent that led to Google's success. It was Larry Page and Sergey Brin's studied understanding of search, what people want to know, how to implement solutions to meet those wants, and...
There was a mention this weekend that Alpine will be selling a CarPlay compatible head unit by this fall. Priced in the $500-$700 range according to the article. http://asia.nikkei.com/Markets/Tokyo-Market/Alpine-to-sell-console-for-Apple-s-in-car-infotainment-system

To prove you're not a bot could you scan your drivers license and post it here please?
They paid 26% or just acknowledged the possible tax obligation? As I recall taxes serve as the justification for leaving (moving?) the bulk of their profits overseas to various tax havens just to avoid them. And no Google doesn't operate any differently AFAIK, nor probably MSFT.
I think it's more likely his old contract expired. His current opinions are much more in keeping with his old patent battles in Europe. Holding hands with the very company he demonized for years, Microsoft, and taking a decidedly pro-software patent position never jived with his prior history.That doesn't necessarily mean he hasn't found a new client. I've often thought his opinions over the past couple of years to be intended for support of someone else's agenda so maybe...
Jessi, what unique ornamental element(s) does the '286 patent offer protection for? Yes, design patent applications require that the protected design be unique, as the USPTO words it " new, original and ornamental design for an article of manufacture."That's both logical and required. All the cites of prior art and multiple renderings of items with broken lines don't describe what Apple would like to receive patent protection for. Apple specifically stated in the...
