That's just something all companies ask for in these cases. Nokia also asked for a ban on iPhones being imported. All things considered bit of a blow to Apple, but better for consumers. Apple may have a right to a lot of the technology in the iPhone, but imagine if the keyboard and mouse had a patent that was enforced, or the same with how you drive a car. Whete would the world be if these things had to be different with every manufacturer.
This article and most of it's comments seem to take an opinion on what Silverlight used to be. Talk on video's and replacing flash is only really applicable to Silverlight 1. The fact that MS supports HTML5 and any of those standards in no way changes the future plans of silverlight or the direction it's heading. It would be like saying Apple say developers should support HTML5 and follow it with an article saying Apple to dial down iOS. HTML5 is a web browser...
Only problem with that is someone else will be given the trademark and then they can sue apple.
The Zune software for Windows doesn't sync contacts either, all it does is music, videos and photos. Everything else is cloud based. If you want to sync your mac contacts your basically limited to either syncing though Google or Yahoo as thats the only cloud based services OS X contacts sync with (other than mobile me).
Geeze some people really like there copy and paste, you would think the world was going to end if you didn't have it. As for people thinking the ui is a complete failure, I kinda like it, not everyones the same. I've stared at a liitle grid of icons on my phone for almost a decade, time for a change. One thing that hasn't been mentioned though is this now completes microsofts cloud based services. All you photos, contacts, calendars, emails, office files etc now sync....
I just went to buy one and they were sold out, so evidently more than just me.
Don't forget most website you visit (like this one) have their adverts managed by Google.
I kinda agree and disagree at the same time. If this was a patent for the technicalities of how interpreting the gesture is recognized then a movie wouldn't count as the movie just has an idea and no patentable technology on how it's done. But from what I've read this is a patent on the actual gesture being used on a mobile device, irrespective of any technology behind it. In which case is there is a film that has a person doing the same thing then it would be prior art...
Ok not quite zoom on an image but there's thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8lCetZ_57g About half way through he uses two fingers to make a box grow and this is from 1991. Now you can argue it doesn't effect the patent because it's not a mobile device, but my original point was that it seems stupid you can patent something that clearly already exists or was thought of by someone else just by adding the words "on a mobile device". It's still essentially the same idea.
You do realise though that your kid will find a way round all these restrictions, so all your doing is giving yourself a false sense of security.When I was young my parents wouldn't let me have a mobile phone. Solution I just bought one and didn't tell them. If kids can't get around the stuff this could do, they'll just buy another phone and not tell you about it.
