Since Apple is essentially suing OEM Manufacturers over Android not over their products, is it possible for them to sell the phones and tablets without an OS but with a generic Rom Downloader to Google website perhaps? So if Apple want to sue over Android use, they have to come after individual consumers like the RIAA and suffer an even wider uproar over their litigious actions.

I think I'm done with Apple forever. I can stand a lot of crap and underhanded things, but the one thing I can't stand is hypocrites and Apple is full of them.

You sure do make a lot of assumptions. No and no. When have you ever proven me wrong? You sure haven't done so here....
Written December 22, 2011. How convenient to try and twist the truth. If you actually use Android 1.0, you'll see it's a notification bar, much like every other phone from the 90s and even your car's dashboard.... You tap on it and it opens a new page listing the notifications, much like many other implementations in prior smartphones. It most definitely, is not a drop down tray notification system... And Android still doesn't even have app badges...
Face it, Android didn't get drop-down notifications first either. Apple hiring devs from webOS and an app on Cydia somehow means they ripped off Android? lachen.gif
Too bad no one copied Android to begin with. You might want to look at who they hired to put it into iOS before claiming it came from Android again.

Continue? lol

Android has been ahead of iOS for a while.

Are you trying to say that webOS copied Android too? I don't know how much more clearer I can make it but Apple hired webOS devs and a dev from Cydia's mobilenotifier. Neither of these were copies of the Android notification system.

Do we need to bring out the Blackberry notification bar to explain to you as well? Did Blackberry and Palm rip off Android too?

How about the Sony Ericssons from 2005 with all their notifications in a centralized place. Centralized notifications aren't new... Apple has been working on smartphones/PDAs since 1987 with the Newton.

Where do Apple's iOS notifications actually look like they came from? Growl

Were this to happen (i.e. Apple's lead through the destruction of Android device availability and functionality), affordable, functional electronic devices would be out of reach from I reckon, 70% of the world's population that would've had the opportunity.  If devices based on Android which can be customized to be implemented at low cost were to suddenly disappear, it would be like taking the technology out of hands that could really use it.  A detriment to the worldwide productivity of human beings who, in an age where technology is making our lives and our tasks more productive than ever, should be able to reap the benefits.

 

Apple's practices are unhealthy to the human race!

I agree completely. I love having choices and use both platforms. I'd love to see Android replace the software on my car's SAT NAV. Maybe by 2020?

Care to share this wunderkind you have, brody?

One of my biggest irritations with android 1/2 is that it was a tap and drag the drop down, now with honecomb I don't have to worry about that anymore thumb.gif. I hated having to drag across the whole screen; my fingers don't like capacitive screens. Where did this webOS arguement come from, and why does an article written in 2011 about the history of android twist the truth due to convenience?
