There is testing going on now using "smartwatch" like wearables for 24-7 monitoring of health conditions, and techs are looking for medical device partners. Regulatory agencies aren't going to be rushed into approvals tho.
She didn't. What she did do was advise Apple (and Samsung) if their primary interest was a speedy trial already scheduled to start in July/2012 then they needed to trim the claims back to their strongest ones. Trying to do it with 30 claims or more in a single lawsuit would seriously delay the jury trial itself up to a year (fact-finding, preliminary objections and responses, claim construction arguments, etc) but they had the right to do so if that was their preference.It...
Open YOUR eyes sir. If she's so biased against Apple or favoring Samsunghow do you explain thisappleinsider.com/articles/14/11/26/judge-rules-apple-entitled-to-potential-ongoing-royalties-from-patent-infringing-samsung-productsor this:http://macdailynews.com/2015/08/05/judge-lucy-koh-rules-for-apple-scuttles-class-action-lawsuit-over-undelivered-texts-to-android-downgraders/or...
Geez, I had no idea how accurate that statement was when I made it. Some of the hardware must be ridiculously cheap already. A "smartwatch" for less than $40?? http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/321807116965?ul_noapp=true&chn=ps&lpid=82http://goo.gl/m7NHJt
:facepalm:The bypass is made available by Apple rather than some Google discovery, and discussed in this Apple technote:https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/technotes/App-Transport-Security-Technote/If Apple "sincerely wants developers to upgrade their apps to be more secure" then why offer a workaround? Is this classic Apple? Nope.
You're a little off-base I think. The very first Android Wear watch was rectangular, not round, and came out months before the Apple Watch was even revealed late last year. Was it brave of them too? Not IMHO. Simply a design choice. There's room for lots of different ones.
There are other square/rectangular smartwatches besides Apple's. It's not as tho no one else thought of doing something other than round. Somehow I think a whole lot of folks here have the mistaken impression everyone else is mimicking round traditional watches.
I wouldn't be so quick to throw Koh under the bus as she's not "anti-patent". For example she's the only judge in the world to find that Apple's swipe-to-unlock patent is valid. Also you may not remember she's the judge that granted two Apple requests for preliminary injunctions against Samsung.
Apple doesn't typically reduce pricing simply because they sell another several million of whatever over what they did last year. If the media companies follow Apple's lead, which would be smart IMO, they won't either. Why should they? Right now they have the upper hand.
