Hate to break it to you but if you think Android was the first smartphone to introduce notifications, you must of been born yesterday. Why even my old Palm Treo had notifications...

You're trying to use this: t-mobile-g1-review-status-bar.jpg as prior work? lachen.gif Sorry but mobilenotifier looked nothing like Android notifications.

As for the kid wondering why his posts got ignored, it's because I can't see them unless someone is foolish enough to quote the gibberish spewing from said mouth.

Android guy here, and I'm willing to admit that Motorola is probably in the wrong on this one. Worst case scenario, they have to update all phones to ICS, with the ring style lock screen. That is nothing like apples slide to unlock feature IMO.

Now, lets see an apple fan boy admit apple is wrong about something.... I won't hold my breath.

I never said that Android was the first to introduce notifications. It is fairly obvious that WebOS was probably the first OS to implement notifications. But you were trying to say that iOS had notifications before Android, because of MobileNotifier. But due to the facts presented in both those patents I posted, that is clearly not the case.

And I love how people simply ignore the "theft" Apple did of the Xerox Alto. I wonder if Xerox still has those patents...

I'm not sure software patents existed back then.

EDIT: Looks like there were, just not very many.
306

The graph isn't perfectly clear, I believe this is the patents issued per year, not the total number of patents at the time of each year in the graph.

Read what is written, not what you want to hear. iOS had notifications in Cydia before they became apart of the official build when the developer got hired. The notifications you see in iOS 5 are not from Android. No one said iOS had the same type of notifications that you see today before Android did. iOS had notifications at launch too.

FWIW, webOS most definitely did not invent notifications either. Even phones in the 90s had notifications. Which includes the Apple Newton as well.

To me, apples constant patent trolling is enough to ban them from my house but what really gets me is how they are almost the microcosm for what is wrong with american economics. Apple is richer than any company on earth yet can't put in their dues and manufacture in the US. Steve Jobs was getting upwards of $500 million a year some years and yet they scrounge for the cheapest sweatshop labor they can find. Think about how many American workers they could hire and STILL pull a profit, but they'd rather line their executives pockets with billions. Pure greed like this just sickens me but the sheeple just keep on buying...actually I don't know what sickens me more: the excessively greedy execs or the sheeple that allow all this to happen...

How many times do we have to remind people that when posting on overclock.net you are expected to show some professionalism? The whole purpose of this forum is to discuss(compare & contrast) Not to start a war. Also, report anyone you feel is breaking the rules. Replying only makes things worse not better.

Thats easy to say but if everyone else does their labor work in Asia then why have a handicap and higher Americans? Even if they are one of the biggest in the world its only take very little time and a mid change of people for something like Apple to fail. Also people dont really seam to care where things are made any more. On top of that they are a hungry corporation not a charity organization.

But the developers on Cydia DID get it from Android.

So Android had it ---> Goes to Cydia ---> Goes to Apple

And now all of a sudden it never came from Android? While the code may not have been Android based, the entire premise of a drop-down status bar was first done on Android. Previous status bars did not pull down and display in the same way that Android achieved it.

Make something similar and patent it as something else. Might as well make use of the garbage patent system to counter the rotten and criminal Apple.
