This is exactly what I'm talking about. Critical features that a large percentage of the potential customer base need and Apple could easily add but they either don't care if people use the product or are being really stupid when it comes to knowing what customers need. These are not nit picky omissions.Maybe the problem is that culturally Apple doesn't usually ask its customers what they need. They build the product the customer will want. I think that works great for...
Of course I was polite. I made well reasoned arguments and requests on Apple support a handful of times over the last 10 years. I'm bitching now because it's been a decade and Pages is still useless for me.At one point I concluded that Apple didn't want to compete with MS in Word processing and intentionally didn't develop it. With the news that Pages will be platform agnostic, it appears Apple does want to compete. If so, they are being really stupid to not produce a...
I'm making the argument that Pages doesn't support the most important use type for getting wide spread adoption. If you don't make your Word processor usable for lawyers, you can't get significant market share and everyone ends up using MS Word.Do you think it is wise for Apple to build a Word processor that has a maximum market penetration of less than 1%? WTF?Why doesn't Apple F'ing fix Pages so that lawyers and their business clients can use it? Apple has its head...
Yes, and they are likely to lose the appeal. I suspect the real purpose of the appeal is to argue that the damages are excessive, not that they don't infringe. They may get lucky on infringement, but it doesn't appear to be their best argument.
No the USPTO would never allow a claim to a climbing route. It isn't patent eligible under 35 USC 101 because a climbing route is naturally occurring. Software IS NOT naturally occuring.
No, Google plays the gangster role too. The point is that big companies push around small patent holders.
What makes you think the patent office did something wrong? Has it not occured to that Apple is infringing? You must be the kind of guy whose kid punches someone in the face and when you hear about it, you instantly respond by saying, "oh my child would never do that, you must be mistaken".Apple has and should defend itself in patent infringement lawsuits, but just because you like Apple doesn't mean they aren't infringing or that the Patent office must have screwed up.
What makes you think they should lose? Has it occurred to you that Apple may be infringing a valid patent?The reason the cost of litigation is so high is because big companies spend millions of dollars on lawyers who play games and try and spend the patent holders into the ground. It's a game they play all the time and every now and then they lose.
Why should they have to sell something? Would you tell a sales clerk at the Apple Store that they don't deserve to be paid because they didn't have anything to do with the inventing or manufacturing?All technologies require three things, they need to be invented, manufactured, and sold. Those three things can be done in the same or different companies. Inventors deserve to get paid just like sales people, even though neither of them make anything.Sales people protect...
