Right on! Even customers agree: Apple should please YOU by allowing competitors to copy everything.

EVERYTHING. FOR FREE. WE INVENT SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO. FREE DOOR KNOBS FOR ALL.

Just because it 'seems' easy and obvious does not make it so. Just as an excersize, off the top of your head, can you describe the inner workings of a door latch and how it works?

Yes, this customer had enough of Apple... enough to buy a rMBP and say wow what a computer!

Me too! That's why I sold my iPod touch, 2 apple TVs and time capsule on eBay and bought a Galaxy Nexus and a Nexus 7; all I have left is an imac!

Which "petty" lawsuits are you referring to and what do they have to do with this story?

It's not my job to educate you.

That was your mom and pop's job.

in other words you're simply shouting off random sound bites with no actual way to back anything up.

All you needed to say.

Actually, no.

 

I just have insanely good time management skills that recognise when it's worth debating a point with somebody who may actually recognise alternative viewpoints, and somebody who couldn't do that if they tried.

 

How are things in the hospital?

That explains a considerable amount.

It's about time Apple went after the main nemesis Google. Google really did copy a lot from ios with Android 4.1, it adds fluidity and more of a buttery smooth experience which copies ios 6, among other things. Google needs to learn a valuable lesson that it can't blatantly copy Apples intellectual property and patents.

rational ? reason or understanding ? It's just my opinion and likes/dislikes but.....

 

I am referring more to the physical characteristics of the hardware eg. screen size, physical dimension choices, ability to add/remove external storage, battery replacement etc. That kind of stuff.

The patent for "smooth" quite plainly belongs to Samsung, not Apple.1wink.gif

You can't "copy" smoothness...

Apple doesn't have a patent on "smoothness and fluidity"

I sincerenly hope you're joking.

Next you're going to tell me that Google copied the Notification Shade from Apple's Notification Center.

So Ad hominem is your response?

cute.

I've asked repeatedly for anyone to tell me anything Android specifically copied from iOS that initially belonged to Apple that is not in wide usage elsewhere.

"heuristics for a heuristic motion at 1mm from edge of screen herp derp." is what a majority of these lawsuits are about. Look and feel is Samsung's game....

so Android 1.0 - 4.2 what aspects of iOS 1.0 - 6.0 have been copied obviously and wholesale?

I'm talking features as obvious as the notification center.

In essence you can because iOS1 to ios 6 have always had a buttery smooth, and fluid user experience while all of a sudden Android 4.1 contains project butter that blatantly copies ios in terms of fluidity. I think Apple has a point here to go after Android 4.1 to try in there best interests to remove project butter and revert back to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Being "more responsive" is not patentable. If Google achieved this by using code from Apple then Apple can sue but that would be a silly suggestion. Now there are patentable actions that Apple might be able to sue over like the way the UI bounces at the end of a scroll, but this is in no way the same as making a UI more responsive.

Project Butter should be commended for being a radical jump in the user experience for Android OS even though it pales in comparison to what Apple accomplished with iOS back in 2007 with a 412MHz/65nm/ARMv6/ARM11 ASIC with 256MB RAM.

HAHAHA, are you serious?

 

I thought you were being sarcastic in your previous comment.

 

Believe me I see terrible lags in iPhones having had that buttery smooth experience of Jelly Bean for almost 4 months.  Things had been progressibly improving to get where Jelly Bean were, just like iPhone 5 became the fastest smartphone.

Adding Jellybean itself to the suit was denied. The suit will be restricted to Samsung (and Apple) products. The Galaxy S3 and Nexus got added, as did Samsung's request to include Apple's iPhone 5 on their side of the IP infringement claims. Judge Grewel also warned Apple that if Samsung wishes to add the iPad Mini and latest iPad4 to the infringement proceedings then they should understand it will probably be allowed, based on Apple's own arguments as to why it should be allowed to add Samsung's S3.
