I agree with this wholeheartedly. I don't want to have to wade through tons of crap, just to get to the good stuff.  Best Buy is full of high profit (for them) crap that no one is buying and a large amount of low profit product that not enough people are buying.  That's just a recipe for death of a retailer.  After all these years they're still selling ungodly high priced hdmi cables because why?  Because they use them as an add-on when selling a new tv, as the cable...
It's a tough business to be in - advertising, that is.  We can all complain that these ads were not Apple's finest, yet we don't know what Apple actually hoped to achieve with the ads.  Heck, I've been using Macs since the late 80's and think of myself as being pretty fluent in both Mac and PC software and hardware.  But I too find myself flustered with doing things like making a video.  iMovie, once you figure out what you're doing with it, IS a very easy to use program...
No, my dream was the inspiration for the detailed drawings I created, albeit in pencil, that clearly show a tablet very similar to what became the iPad. Therefor I do indeed have prior art for the design and even some functionality on the os given my notes about the symbols onscreen and video playback capability.I'm feeling pretty secure about this now and look forward to my day in front of the judge. Apple is going to look so bad.
I had this dream, I was sitting at my desk at work, which happened to be a company that manufactured cheap plastic craft and photo products, back when I worked there in the late 80's and as usual, I was tired of dealing with the boring number crunching I had to do for Wal-Mart, my largest customer, on the plastic canvas we sold them.  This was back in the day when computers were still a thing that not everyone had and the ones we were using were horrible, at best, green...
+1.  What an idiotic statement to make.  So, yes, Apple copied MS.  But because Apple has the ability to time travel, they can take the ideas from companies like MS today and go back in time, write a patent application and then be credited for something they didn't create.  And of course they didn't actually create the time machine, but just stole the idea from some other company (probably Samsung) in the future and we just don't realize that's the case now.   Stupid...
The issue of whether Samsung created and manufactures components (and patents many of the same) isn't the issue being challenged here.  Apple works with Samsung and buys a boat-load of parts from them.  The issue is that, Apple goes to Samsung to buy parts for a new product.  Samsung is privy to the design because they have build parts based upon design specs.  Then for some reason, pure coincidence of course, Samsung changes their design for smartphones to look very much...
The issue regarding the "Sony - Jony" iPhone mock-up is so far from being proof that Apple copied Sony and therefore wasn't the creator of the original design model for the iPhone in question, that I wonder why Apple cares or Samsung thinks it will have any impact other than to prove Apple came up with the design.  It was an Apple employee that created the "Sony" iPhone example - not based upon any Sony designs of the time but rather his vision of what a Sony iPhone...
They mention other potential vendors having only 30 days to submit.  So, who were the other vendors?  And I believe the issue is that after Apple had their bid in, then other vendors had 30 days to submit a "better" offer to the MTA.  Sounds completely reasonable to me.  How else would it happen?  They make it out that Apple was the only company allowed to negotiate over the course of 2 years.  My guess is that it was as much the MTA holding off on giving Apple the green...
My prediction is that it won't matter what MS does with 8.  They'll get new customers as well as some adopters from older systems, but for enterprise customers, it will be business as usual given they will resist full scale implementation of a new OS that could and probably will negatively impact their user base.  As long as MS continues to support older os's, you'll have a great number of users who will not upgrade/update until their whole system requires it.   And...
What does this really matter?  Is it really a game that has a winner or loser?  So if Samsung sold 52 million phones spread between what, 10 models, 5 models - whatever the number, it's still meaningless.  They push these things out as if it's a sign of doom for either company and that's just total crap.   And I just don't buy the argument that competition forces innovation - at least I am not convinced that is the case with Apple.  Do you really think the Apple...
