When we figure out a way to drive innovation, while protecting inventors from getting under cut by larger corporations.

I always chuckle when I read stuff like this. Remember when iPhones came out and they said it was gonna be all web apps and everyone laughed?

Then they came out with the app store and tried to bury that idea of web apps....

Funny.

So much for not supporting flash because its a buggy and broken.

Apple: "We're supporting HTML5 over Flash because its an open standard, which means we can threaten them whenever they try and develop something that will cut our App Store revenue by letting people make proper HTML5 apps."

Funny.

There's a big difference between laughing of an idea and blocking others through patenting....

This. They've created a monster of themselves. There's no going back now.

Exactly this. I try as hard as I can to avoid a sort of anti-fanboy knee-jerk hatred of them, but they're really not helping me out any in that regard.

As soon as Wall Street is forced to loosen its stranglehold on our legal system.

mad.gifrolleyes.gif sigh.....not until they go bankrupt will they stop their patient trolling. Seeing how people swear the "i" family are the greatest things since sex,...they'll be trolling for generations. Eventually they'll have
to sue themselves for infringing on their own patient. Their won't be anyone left to sue.

They might sue Nissan next for having the letter "i" in it's name. rolleyes.gif
