Yes. This was described when the watch was announced. The watch requires an iPhone for almost everything.
As soon as I saw the article said Texas I knew Ericsson had nothing to stand on or not enough money to use a real court. The eastern court of Texas should be shut down permanently.
So two people can't have the same intellectual idea at different times and the only one who actually gets it patented even if they never license it or demonstrate the idea wins? Doesn't make sense. From what others have said the patents are very general in wording. Apple has a very specific design. How does the general one even relate? It's like patenting a piece of metal and saying it applies to everything made of metal, even though the patent owner never made anything...
The 7 patents are owned by the guy who patented them. They weren't bought but until I see something other than some drawings that prove his ideas even work I feel they should be invalidated. 15 years and all he has are his ideas.
Show me a product. Show me where his patented ideas were actually used. How generalized are his patents? Apple should go after the USPTO directly and challenge them to justify giving this guy patents just for ideas that he never tried translating into a product.
iPhones dropping but an Apple car? If I had any money with this guy I'd get out now.
Since this article is about enterprise adoption, which might or might not include government use, the inclusion of these extra ports could cause problems especially if there isn't a way to lock down their use. Good can control cellular and network access but I don't know if they can control the MicroSD port or specific use of the USB port. Enterprises want a secure device and the more ways to get into it the more problems it creates. The Windows tablet you mentioned has...
Brand X, give me manufacturer and product names and we can discuss them. Otherwise they could include tablets built into refrigerators or car audio systems. If they can't give them a name then quit reporting on them.
Previous AI article about Softcard and Google doesn't mention banks. Has anyone read if Visa works with Softcard? Not that I really care but knowing whether Visa or Amex or the banks want to enter into any agreements with Google/Softcard will be helpful.
Will this extend to Android phones or only iPhones? If not, will Visa allow credit card information to be stored on android phones (Softcard, etc)? If tokenization is the best and safest way to handle mobile transactions why would banks and credit card companies even use something else?
