Please don't try to confuse us with logic, most just assume that since Apple has unlimited financial resources all R&D and acquisition costs are readily absorbed by Apple in general and don't affect selling prices at all./s
Samsung calls on Android exec in patent trial to prove certain features were created by Google, not Apple
All he did was tell a story which really sounded like a fairy tale to me. Terrible title for the article as the article does not mention that he ever even attempted to provide any proof in court to back up what he claims occurred.
So VP of Android Engineering Hiroshi Lockheimer claims they didn't copy things from Apple and that Android / Google actually invented some of Apple's patented items before Apple patented them. Just because he says they did doesn't make it so. Where is the proof / documentation / prototypes etc. to back his claims?
You still don't get it! Since Steve came back It never has been and hopefully never will be about the specs. It has been all about improving the performance and the end user experience which are not necessarily tied to hardware specs.
The entire article makes no sense. The 'rumored' 'potential' deal wouldn't require federal approval so it doesn't matter if the government approved of it or not. Analyst Paul Gallant's comment is basically irrelevant since federal approval isn't required to begin with.
