As it should be. Innovate, don't recreate.Google literally has dozens of pending lawsuits of which this is only one.
Don't read that drivel posted by the Android faithful. Google has plenty of lawsuits or has armed partners and subsidiaries with the means to sue competitors."Google owns Motorola Mobility Inc. "Judge Richard Posner threw out a heated case between Apple and Google-owned Motorola Mobility yesterday, ending an infringement squabble between two companies in deep competition."" (1)"A regional German court in Mannheim ruled on Friday that Apple Sales International -- European...
In Android-land up-is-down, black-is-white, etc. They have an illogical, irrational view that isn't supported by evidence. Frankly, it is beyond my comprehension but evidence suggests that such is literally the case. Anything to fuel their hatred of Apple. As someone previously noted, there are few people that love Android but many who hate Apple which appears to be the primary force driving the adoption of Android-based smartphones.(1) There truly does appear to be a...
Prior to your statement "competition = good," being considered (much less proven true), the following must be proven:You must define "competition." Who? What markets? What devices? Is the sale of a 5" "smartphone" an alternative to the purchase of a 3.5" smartphone and a 9.7" tablet?You must define "good." "Good" for whom? "More good" than alternatives?You must prove competition is "good." Many studies exist that demonstrate that competition is not...
Apparently not. If Google thought the Notification Center was a copy of Google's prior art they should sue. As far as I know Google hasn't sued, nor have Google's legal entities sued them for patent infringement regarding the Notification Center.
I agree.Courts around the globe are supporting Apple patent infringement assertions. There are very few possible conclusions:1. Apple competitors are infringing on Apple patents which further suggests that Apple is the only company innovating.2. Apple competitors have lawyers who are as "skilled" at litigation as their engineers are at "innovation."
While there are four patents which are the subject of the injunction; the ruling was based primarily on U.S. Patent No. 8086604, which is defined as a “universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system.” The patent appears to relate to a unified search tool that can be used to find a variety of different items via one indexed database. This could also refer to a unified spoken word interface like Siri, or Google’s voice search.Additional patents...
Not even trivial. Maps in iOS 6 are demonstrably better than Maps in earlier versions.iOS 6 Maps currently provides:Speech interfaceSchematic maps that provide a variety of detail dependent upon the zoom level such that the interface isn't cluttered and important details are more visible with larger text and greater emphasis (probably the most under appreciated aspect of Maps)2D Mercator-variant projection with (at higher zoom levels) and without 3D projection with...
My wife is born and raised Japanese, listening to her trying to coax information from Siri in English is hysterically funny. Siri in Japanese seems to be fairly reliable for her though.
Research in Motion hasn't addressed the fundamental issue because they are a one trick pony. One heck of a trick but once another pony learned the trick the trick was unimpressive especially since the other pony had dozens of tricks.Beyond that, there just isn't a significant list of features and functions that Apple iPhone can't provide from secure emails and messaging to enterprise device management without an expensive infrastructure.
