They don't even see the utter hypocrisy of their own actions.

Still trying to take the high road? This time it's "you must add merit to the actual conversation." The irony: the conversation is completely off topic in the first place. So which high road is it? Get back on topic or add merit to your off topic thread? Or are you just shifting around to appear to come out on top?

You've been reported. You have nothing to add to this conversation. You're simply jumping on to others' attacks of DaHarder. For the sake of all of us, please either clean up your act or get off AI.

Secondly, SokipsismX, I normally enjoy your rather humorous inserts (and particularly at making trolls look foolish ) but I can't help but wonder why you're attacking DaHarder so harshly here. He was responding to someone else's claims that Android phones always have terrible battery life in order to show that his results show otherwise (that it is possible to have great battery). You make it seem like DaHarder posting his battery life stats was a personal attack against you. I can tell you as an iPhone owner (4) and an Android owner (OG Evo) that you have no need to worry; the iPhone battery is still the king of the smartphone world . But as an OG Evo owner I've learned to take a lot of battery reviews with a grain of salt. Before I got the Evo all I ever heard was about its terrible battery life. After educating myself I learned that if you use the phone as it comes stock the battery life is quite poor. Now I average about 10-11 hours per charge on VERY heavy use (I enjoy using emulators quite a bit, specifically my PSX and SNES ones), and I charge my phone every other day with regular use (web browsing and texting frequently throughout the day, probably 2-3 phone calls, email checked every 30 minutes or so, etc).

Just my two cents

Nice to find someone of such truth, objectivity and reason around here... Brilliantly Put.

Now how about something along those lines from you, not just half of the image that fits you.

Here is the abstract of the patent. I have highlighted the areas for you which make this patent different from the Neonode N1 device which has no touch screen (it uses infrared beams to work out where your finger is)

A device with a touch-sensitive display may be unlocked via gestures performed on the touch-sensitive display. The device is unlocked if contact with the display corresponds to a predefined gesture for unlocking the device. The device displays one or more unlock images with respect to which the predefined gesture is to be performed in order to unlock the device. The performance of the predefined gesture with respect to the unlock image may include moving the unlock image to a predefined location and/or moving the unlock image along a predefined path. The device may also display visual cues of the predefined gesture on the touch screen to remind a user of the gesture.

Except it does. Check the available videos. There is left to right swipe gesture, that is also used for the unlock.

I also had Sony Ericsson M600 (Symbian with touch screen, prior the iPhone) and there was app that used exactly the same gesture, including the sliding image.

This is clear prior art and it only shows that patent law need either to be updated, or invalided.

Interesting article up at 9to5. It questions the money Apple has supposedly spent on suing Android makers with so little to show for it.

I still feel we'll see some settlements and cross-licensing before this year is out.

Anyway... You appear bent on believing what you want, even in the face of photographic evidence, so I'll leave you to that.

Be Well...

That's not photographic evidence of anything. It doesn't show us a single thing you've done. All it tells us is how long the thing has been off the recharger, and how much battery life is left. Unless you can show us why it means something else.

You know that those numbers are just guesses? There are other articles that say its money we'll spent. So who's right? Heck, it doesn't even matter to these companies.

Last week we cringed to learn that Apple had dragged the Galaxy Nexus into their latest round of litigation against Samsung, this time going after the phone for violating a slide-to-unlock patent. It now seems that those reports originating at the FOSS Patents blog were false. A Samsung exec speaking to the Korea Herald says the Galaxy Nexus is no where to be found among the list of devices being targeted in Apples latest patent spat. Were aware that there was a hearing involving Apples slide-to-unlock feature after our patent infringement case last Friday and a series of products in the Galaxy lineup were accused there, the unnamed executive stated, but what weve discovered is that the Galaxy Nexus wasnt one of them.
