[GSMArena] Court rules Apple is to pay $330K a day over Facetime patents - Page 3

post #21 of 75
if not for M$, Apple would be long dead, they make money anyway they can to avoid that again, but that does not make me hate them any less.

sure...
But i do not see how patenting a "rounded rectangle" helped them with their products taking off.
and as far as ignorance... please do some research..... they have been known throughout their own history of stealing ideas and dropping a patent on it. rolleyes.gif stopping the ones who designed it to start off with from using their own designs.

Hardly, they were there at the right time. The reason they never really took off prior is parts were large, weak battery guzzlers with crappy touch screens. Apple came in at a time that parts were becoming fast enough and efficient enough to reasonably put them in a phone. Sure maybe it accelerated faster than it otherwise would have but we were on the verge of headed there whether apple was there or not.

People have alot of hate for Apple but i personally really love them for one reason, competition

When apple enters a market they make big splash and everyone wants a piece of the pie, so you get awesome devices for great prices. Look at the tablet industry now, sure apple was definitely not the first, but you cannot argue that when the Ipad entered that market and started bringing in billions you got a whole bunch of other companies making their devices to compete and you get beautiful things like the Ipad 4, Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab and Asus Transformer and other nice tablets.

Smartphone industry, all-in-ones, ultra books, etc... Apple being there made everyone else make better things!

This.

 

And I'll be quite honest here, I think they make damn good products too.

Yes, this is quite fantastic, not like the ruling can carry over to other companies if it happens again. rolleyes.gif

Every time it's pointed out that Apple basically opened up a lot of markets with their products everyone freaks out.
