I know in a lot of cases the licence gives basic copyrights just by placing your code under it. In any case the code is considered public and cannot be used for profit of any kind even if there is not patent. In order for apple to use it they would need to release there code under the same licence in witch case they are free to use it as they please.

Does anyone own a patent on that notification system that's included in open source software? I don't know how that works.
And Apple has proven time after time they have absolutely no intention of licensing Android. Their intent has never been to coexist with Android, but to completely destroy it. Apple wants a monopoly on the smartphone industry. Much of this was Steve Jobs' own nerd rage at being beaten by his own game. He took an existing product and added new technology and features to make it better, and didn't like it when someone else did the same to his product.

No I actually side somewhat with Apple here. TouchWiz is second only to MIUI in blatant iPhone ripoffs (which is a shame because MIUI does so much more once you remove the iOS crap).

Vanilla Android and the other manufacturer variants like Sense are completely different and packed with features you'd be hard pressed to duplicate even on a jailbroken iPhone, and do so much more than the doctored photos Apple and their reporter cronies like to throw around.

C'mon Nathris, you may be a blind, arrogant Android fan but even you're more intelligent than that analogy.

Yes they are doing this to protect their assets. The slide to unlock feature is a main aspect of their GUI as is the design of the iPhone. Hence why they go after people hard when they try and copy it.

Android is basically a creation born out of necessity for competition to iOS yet you frivolously defend it like the very creation of iOS exists simply to piss Android off.

Remember which one came first, remember which one innovated, remember which company made it main stream.

You may not like Apple products, and I can accept that. But jesus man, you need to relax and open your eyes.

I never even said it was right what they did, however when these patents are being accepted they're not going to stop! A lot of things in this world are wrong, a lot of the practices Google employ, I do not necessarily agree with but that's life. Get over it.
You're kidding right? Mainstream perhaps, but iOS was not around prior to Android. If anything, they were born at nearly the exact same time. Android just wasn't released in it's Cupcake form (when it did become mainstream) until a bit later.

It was not "innovation", please don't use words like that to describe something so simple. They took what was already in existence (Android too, at this point in time), copied it, and put it into a sleek phone with a name that everyone knew because of their iPods.

When I say "copy", I do mean it. Everything that was in the original iOS was already in existence in Windows Mobile, PalmOS, and BlackberryOS.

Please stop it.

Android is not better, that is purely your opinion.

It is simply an alternative solution to a market demand. iOS and Android both have their strengths and weaknesses, to say one is better than the other simply shows just how useless it is trying to debate with someone who is obviously closed minded.

Why do people fight this so much.

No company had the same kind of app availability process that Apple designed. No one had the same kind of GUI that Apple had supplied. In terms of aesthetics the iPhone was light years ahead of anything currently on the market.

Like it or not, the iPhone was a market changer and a class leader. You don't have to like Apple products to understand that.

Also, iOS was around before Android. The iPhone was released 6 months before the G1, and it was a hell of a lot more refined. I had a G1 when it very first came out and that thing was way behind the iPhone.

Technically he is correct. iOS was not called iOS when the iPhone was initially released. It was just iPhone OS and iPod Touch OS I believe.

That's just arguing semantics.

I don't see why people have to hate a product so much.

It's like in my city, there are two Rugby teams. Fans on one team, hate the other with an absolute passion. Are people seriously that retarded that you simply cannot just enjoy something for what it is?

There is a lot of blind hate for Apple products simply because it's the cool thing for geeks to do, just to show how 'different' they are.

I'll stick to appreciating both products.

Faster and more feature rich isn't better? Apple's only real strength has been App availability, and that's quickly eroding as most of Apple's loyal developers are also developing on Android now.

If you look at the pure strength of the OS, apps aside, Android does more. This is indisputable. The iPhone doesn't support removable storage, or homescreen replacements, flash, dynamic resolution, widgets, 2 dimensional icon placement, near field communication, LTE, app sideloading, among other things.

You may prefer the iPhone, but it terms of measurable quantities Android is a more powerful OS, and its moving faster than Apple can keep up, so they have to resort to exploiting the legal system.
