    I think he meant to write AbsoluteDesignz since he references piot.



    And I have stepped over the line before. I do try to word my digs in such a way that they aren't technically ad hominen attacks and thus are unseen by mod radar sweeps but every now and then I catch a bullet.

    Why, what did he say about me?



    Can someone explain to me what drives these guys? 'Cos for the life of me, I just can't fathom it. Absolute accuses this place/Apple fans of just being a " circle jerk".... and then he places himself bang in the middle of it.

    Google is siding with Motorola on this, by failing to commit to NOT using FRAND based standards to keep competitors out of markets.



    Do you really think Apple isn't the company that started this forest fire? The entire industry is in retaliation mode. ALL of these suits are reaching the pinnacle of absurdity.

    I take pride in never having stepped over that line here. I truly believe there's never a reason for lobbing cuss words, accusations or personal insults at other forum members from the safety of internet anonymity. If that's all you have, then you have no argument left, and nothing more to contribute to that exchange. Better just to be silent.

    Or should I be making more than one choice...



    Can you provide any further clues?



    If you patent a wireless technology that is specific on an i/o operation to a device, it doesn't matter what that device is to infringe on the patent if you are using the IP that is spelled out in the patent. Perhaps you are the one in need of education.

    I disagree with cuss words as a way of expressing a point. When a word evokes a feeling it can help get a point across, often more succinctly than other words. I like to use the simple "Bullshit!" reply when I see a long post that is utter rubbish.





    PS: I just realized that Tourette Syndrome is not transferred when writing. It's only phonic. I wonder if it's an issue with the Broca's Area of the brain.

    The ignore list is your friend! Put me on ignore, then you won't have to whine about me in any of your posts. As for me, I don't have anybody on ignore and I never have. Alphanumeric characters on a screen do not frighten me, no matter who is typing them.



    I've requested this feature before, but I would love to see a reverse-ignore list, as I would like to be able to block certain people from reading my posts, as not everybody is deserving. That would be the ultimate feature and would make me very glad. I estimate that around 5%-10% of posters would be blocked.

    Just as Apple is doing from everything from a rectangle shaped phone to how you move your fingers on a flat surface. You can't call it IP one way and not the other. Silly!



    Point being is that everyone does it everywhere. However, Apple thinks its the only one that someone can't steal from. This after SJ himself declares that great artists steal. That pretty much makes him and Apple the hypocrites of the last 2 decades.

    I prefer the more accurate though less common "Douche bags use contextomy."



    Name me which OS was syncing settings to a cloud before Android.



    And instead of coming up with personal attacks, why not explain why SJ could declare that great artists steal, which they have "shamelessly" done but nobody else can. It might raise what others are considering of your intelligence level.

    I guess it depends if cuss words are considered obscene, vulgar or slimply asshole-ish by the moderators.

    I thought you left after the moderator knocked you down? You were going to be gone forever and take your intelligence elsewhere. That was short lived. Nice to see you are back in all of your self proclaimed l33tness.

    Google's search algorithm blew every other search engine out of the water. Read about PageRank if you want to try to get an idea.



    BTW, is "You are silly." considered a friendly remark on AI, or is it an ad hominem insult? Just making sure what the rules are, for future use.

    I always wonder what makes the iphone so much better then android? Can anybody tell me what that is? It can't be because it runs smoother. Android has lag because there's so much going on at once like, widgets, live wallpaper, etc. Is it because it's easier to use? Some make think it's too easy and boring. The tiny screen? Have to zoom in on every website to read and see pictures. Many like big screens to view sites and pictures better. The iphone is better because Apple tells you what you can and can't do with your phone? Millions like android because you have freedom what you can do to your phone. You can add themes, any type of widget, and even there's numerous types of lock screens. I for one love using android. What you can do to it is endless. I have played with the iphone few times here and there. Even used Siri. I was bored with the iphone 5 minutes later and think Siri is not all that special. "She" can't understand what planet i live on. I think the iphone it self is a good phone, but how would you feel if you bought a car and you can only buy new tires from the dealership and it has to be the tires that came with it. You can't change the paint, customize it, and can't listen to cds. To listen to music, you must use a special device. If that's the life you want, than I am happy for you. Someone tells you what you can and can't do on a device that you payed for out of your pocket. I rather have that freedom.



    The point I am trying to make is that who gave the right for Apple to wonder this planet suing anyone that is "copying" Apple? Everyone copies everyone. Honda was first to come out with the Vtec engine. Everyone else "copies" and now every engine has their version of "vtec." Most people on this board are acting like babies. Destroy android! destroy android! And why it took 3 long years for Apple to start suing android? Why didn't they start suing from day 1? If we don't "copy" someone else idea and improve on it, we will all still be using tube TVs, rotary phones, and etc. Go to any store and count every clone product out there. Clothes, games, toys, everything.



    I still don't see anything special about the iphone. For the last 5 years, the iphone still looks the same. Android; however, has changed so much. The phones have improved, the OS has improved, everything. Android has added NFC, 3D, face unlock, and the list goes on. What has Apple added to make it that much more? My 3 reason why i do not like the iphone, the screen is too small. I have a droid Eris. Can't stand the screen size. The OS is boring. Number 3, seen one you seen them all. Can anyone change my mind why the iphone is much better?

    Just about every Linux OS.

    Nobody knocked me down. I was given one infraction and I didn't like it. That's pretty much all there is to that story.



    Fandroids will never win, and so I am back.



    Who am I kidding? Do you think that I'd be able to miss the opportunity to bash and destroy Fandroids yet again, now that the iPad 3 is right around the corner?



    That tablet is going to be the final death of any Android based tablets. The iPad 2 already kills everything else out there, but the iPad 3 is just going to be so many lightyears ahead of any Android tablet, and I'll be getting one on day one.

    So now it's not about being before Android but being before some date you just just through out there?



    (edit: I see where you got 2008 from. You are making arguments yet you can't even do the most minimal google search for the answers. Pathetic.)



    BTW, that's .Mac, not MobileMe so it already predates 2008. .Mac was launched in 2002. On top of that I seem to recall iTools, which came before .Mac, having some syncing features with Apple's servers though not as complete as with .Mac and beyond.
