Seriously, all those "rounded corner" patent and this patent, can't apple patent real technology?

that wouldnt be very nice since i live only a couple blocks from there

also i think the "bounce back" feature is an innovative touch when you reach the edge of the available screens, its not as ridiculous as say, patenting a simple already in use shape

Rubber-banding is when you reach the end of a scrolling control and it drags further past its bounds. So like when you're scrolling a web page and you hit the end, it starts to drag the web page up and you see a white (or dark) background behind it, so you can see you've reached the end of the webpage.

If it was just the same shape that wouldn't be a problem... Apple wouldn't likely sue, and if they did they'd get shut down in a heart beat.

But despite you being a troll in every possible way, since no one could possibly be this ignorant to support Apple through this BS, you do know that Steve Jobs stated "Good artists copy and great artists steal." right? So you follow the man of a company who believes that copying is okay... but that company is now suing everything that's copying them...?

You had an odd sense of things sir and really need a reality check.

Funnily enough I remember one of the executives at Apple saying that one of the great things about Steve Jobs was that he would change his mind so quickly. There's a lot of things that he thought were stupid or bad ideas, that he's later quickly changed his mind about and gone ahead with. Perhaps he changed his mind about copying and stealing after it was done to him? Haha lol.

Jut saw a video on Youtube demonstrating that, how the hell can this be patented, is just seems like a very simple (if useful) feature and I'm sure I've already seen that kind of scrolling elsewhere a long time ago.

Bit of an extremist eh?


OT with less death from above.... It was a good read but I dont see why people get so upset about this stuff. These are fortune 500 companies after all. Its not like they're going to go bankrupt anytime soon.

Basically, Apple won't be satisified until they've increased the prices of Android phones or removed them from the market. Both are anti-consumer practices.

These lawsuits have nothing to do with protecting themselves, it's about destroying competition.

I hoped that when Steve Jobs died the fire would go out, but Tim Cook is still stoking it.

They need a serious reality check.
But as usual, it's political motivation behind this.

But did you do it on a phone? Because it is on phone now, it is consider new and original.

Wait, how the hell is this feature even remotely significant?

Well, it's the only one Apple actually came up with all by themselves.
