This pisses me off... With all the popcorn I've been eating due to these Apple threads on OCN, I've gained weight.

I never have supported this company with any of my money and will actively try to get others to do the same.

Probably, digital photo frames do strongly resemble iPads since they are rectangular and all.

I still want to know what grounds Apple is suing on, and what patents they are claiming Kodak is infringing, can't find that info anywhere.

The closest info I found is:

In 2010 Kodak sued Apple claiming the iPhone infringes on a Kodak patent related to previewing images. But Apple argued that it is the true owner of the patents and that Kodak pilfered some of its intellectual property when the two companies were exploring how best to commercialize Apple's digital camera technologies back in the early 1990s.

Goes on and on, ever wonder why their stock prices are so high? Currently its just shy of 500 USD.
Apple is all about the image, it's high fashion not technology.

IMO Apple stock is a joke, and a bad one at it. For startes, a stock price is based on the amount of profit such company will share among its stockholders. So, how is it possible that Apple's stock is so high when they share no profits?! If you think about it, it doesn't matter how many years you keep an Apple share that at the end of the day you will end up with NOTHING. There is no profit to be made off of it except pure especulation...and thus its highly questionable.

Nope, I won't support companies that are that shady, even at their stock level.

So by this logic, if HTC sues Kodak, it's all cool beans right?

What would you think if, I don't know, Mitsubishi sued Ford for car mass production related infringements? You know, Ford only started those rolleyes.gif

Fact of the matter is: there aren't many companies that base their strategy in suing everybody else. Its just Apple and...Rambus. What do they have in common? Yes, they both use shady tactics mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

I'm done with Apple. With their cheap slave labor from overseas, overpriced products and suing the hell out of everyone simply turns my stomach.
post #120 of 168
Apple is just being a douche now. They have to sue everybody because they know they can't hold off the Android army, so they sue anybody associated with Android. Now, they are suing bankrupt Kodak. If Apple would invent stuff instead of steal it and patent it and then sue other people, then maybe I wouldn't be ticked at them.

Oh, did you hear about how Apple got mad about the Samsung's Galaxy Nexus ads?: "While Samsung sells products copying features that make the iPhone distinct, Samsung has simultaneously embarked on an advertising campaign designed to tarnish Apple and mock its consumers for considering Apple's products distinctive and, for that reason, valuable,"
http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/apple_takes_offense_samsung_ads_galaxy_nexus_lawsuit

And this is also good news for anybody that hates Apple: "After a Chinese court ruled that Apple has no right to use the "iPad" name in mainland China because a company called Proview Technology (Shenzhen) holds the trademark, Proview announced they were suing Apple for $1.6 billion in damages. Now, Proview wants a complete iPad import/export ban -- and since all iPads are manufactured in China, an export ban could choke off worldwide supply for the mega-popular tablet."
http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/proview_seeks_ipad_export_ban_china_could_choke_worldwide_supply

Apple should just shut up and quit suing people, because Google is arming themselves to take down Apple if they keep up the anti-competitive practices (which neither the EU nor the US gov will punish, because they treat Apple with such kid gloves they won't subject them to the same punishment they gave to Microsoft).
