Every time I read the comments on AI, I picture a hobo standing next to a rail line just about to switch the track for an incoming train, the motive ? To derail it.
Whats so disappointing is the people that allow this to happen.
Just ignore them.
I have been reading posts for a few years and I chuckle at the shear stupidity of people's lame attempts to form any coherent arguments.
One reads bile from elementary educated trolls, to the more sophisticated "fog" from the likes of GG, but the motives are all the same.
There are basically two types of people on the planet, those that can see and appreciate beauty and those that are blind to it.
No amount of arguing, attempting to "educate" them will work, their brains are simply unable to process the imagery and stimulate the thought processes.
Getting back to the thread, oops, I myself derailed it - sorry !
What I don't understand that back in 2007 when the iPhone was announced, and Steve Jobs mentioned that its been patented, why has it taken so long for Apple to begin protecting their IP ? As I remember, and please correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the first Android phones not have pinch to zoom, and only later had this functionality.
Why so ? Is it because they did not have the technology at the time, or were scared in being taken to court ?
Surely when they began infringing on rubber banding and other IP of Apple's why didn't Apple instigate court proceedings there and then ?
