where are all the cries of the Orwellian future this will usher in? Could also be useful for business that want to keep track of where their delivery trucks are for example - tied into other scanner and or credit card scanning etc - could make the iPhone the keystone (or would it be capstone? or cornerstone? or foundation?) of a complete Business Suite for anyone who has people, goods or services that are delivered to the end user. With proper coding and websites...
Where were all those lawyers in the IBM PC BIOS reverse engineering case? they lost that one, no?
I think what I am saying is more along the lines of if there are multiple ways to achieve the same effect then perhaps the overall description is too vague to be patented. For example - Thomas Edison did not patent "the light bulb" he patented a specific design with a screw in base etc - if someone else develops "a device which shall produce a visible light emission through the application of electricity" that is entirely different in materials and construction and design...
My wife bought a Netbook last year - and then ran into trouble trying to install apps from CDs since it has no optical drive - and some apps would not run because the screen res was too low. I have just been informed that I am receiving an iPad as a gift. So we will have one iPad and one Netbook in the household - along with 3 iPhones - one MacBook Pro - one iMac - one Mac Mini - and one Lenovo T510 - along with an assortment of various technological flotsam and...
not sure if this applies here - but seems like this and many are cases where an idea should not be patented but the implementation of that idea. it is one thing if Apple came knocking and said may we use your code please and the patent holder said sure here ya go - that'll be $x per shipping unit (or whatever) and Apple said thanks for the tech but we are not paying - and something else entirely if Apple developed independently code that happened to perform a very...
MacBook Pro 10.6.5 - loaded via Software Update - repeated crashes - download from Apple.com got it going again
I saw the original Tron when it came out - and "horrible, horrible movie" is no where close - go watch Plan 9 from Outer Space if you want to see a movie whose only redeeming quality is that it is so incredibly bad. As for Tron - my recollection is not that it was the best movie or the best acting etc - but I sure was entertained by it. Perhaps not fair to compare it - but I also saw the original Star Wars movie when it came out and despite being a movie that changed the...
"smartphone users don't want to be distracted with lots of functionality in their mobile phone" Is that an actual quote? Did someone with a pulse in 2010 actually say that? Sure I want my smartphone to excel at making phone calls - but the fact that someone at Microsoft thinks that a smartphone that does a lot of other things really well too is not what consumers want perhaps explains the failure of the Kin and may also speak to the potential future of the windows...
the real reason for the Apple facility in North Carolina is so that Apple can install a transceiver big enough to cover half the county - with the other one going into the former HP buildings in California - and the iPhone 5 will be 5G service with 100Mbps down and 25Mbps upstream - and will only support the iPhone 5 - and will require a $100 a month data plan. yeah, that's the ticket. And more thing, Steve is going to marry Morgan Fairchild, yeah.
Pretty bold move by Motorola to ask for an injunction against Apple bringing evidence to the case that would not be favorable to Motorola's position.
