Hopefully this doesn't go as many rounds as a boxing match, the clash of the titans is getting kind of old.

Original... rolleyes.gif and i don't want to start with the software icons back then.

I can understand the apple hate, but we have to be frank, why HTC/SONY/LG can come with their own design philosophy and make something different...nobody accused them, i wonder why thumb.gif

Hmmm, I don't like Apple but I do have to admit, he has a point. Samsung had a moment where their USB plug was like a carbon copy of Apple's . No idea why they did that because it was stupid.

Anyway, the amount of crap from that Apple lawyer is mind-boggling ...

"Where were you on January 9, 2007?" - "Do you remember when people used to talk on telephones? When there were pay telephones on every corner? It all changed that day in January."
... Really? I don't know about America but by 2007 pay phones were pretty much gone here in Belgium thanks to Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung.

EDIT: The only thing that changed after 2007 was people asking: "Hey, is that one of those iPhones?" and getting "Yea, battery life is crap though" as an answer biggrin.gif .

He gave a short description of each patented feature that Apple saw as its property, starting with slide-to-unlock. "This patent responded to a problem we're all familiar with, called pocket dialing," said McElhinny. Then, word correction: "An automatic correction invention gave people the confidence they could do correct and accurate typing on a touchscreen device." Data connectors: "This invention recognizes that [text is] a phone number, or e-mail address, or residential address and presents that to you along with a menu."

Yea, we were all pocket-dialing before the iPhone rolleyes.gif (Perhaps they are annoyed that Andriod has much cooler variations to unlock the phone? IMHO )
Correction? Like text processors had been doing for a long time? Yea, Apple made it automatic and pretty darn annoying at the same time. And dictionaries have been in cell phones for a long time.
My Sony Ericsson K550i and 770i allowed me to e-mail, text and telephone from text messages etc.

I mean, I'm honestly starting to think he actually believes his own jibberish.

The iPhone was a nice innovation. But really? If Apple didn't exist we would have had the same phones we have today I reckon. Only less white versions (which I would consider a good thing) ...

Man, as a consumer all I see is one company using taxpayer money, pretending it's fighting for innovation, but in reality wanting to quell competition and steal some money while it's doing it. Even if we accept that Samsung stole some shapes from Apple, all that means is that Samsung took some harmless inspirations from Apple, and put them together in an arguably better, and demonstrably cheaper package. Competition is good for the consumer (me), and it's good for the advancement of technology. Apple "invented" the smartphone, on the back of previous innovations I might add, and is deciding that it wants to be the only company that can sell such devices. Competition and lower prices is good for me, and the rest of the consumer world. Apple winning a bunch of money by using taxpayer money is not good for me, or you, or anyone other than Apple. Apple getting to remove a bunch of Android features, and disallowing smartphones to vaguely resemble Apple phones means they get to charge (even) more for their phones, and not genuinely innovate in the areas that matter, because they won't have to.

P.S. The actual so-called infringements are the stupidest list of petty things I have ever read. I mean, really? Square-shaped phones? Rounded corners? As for Apple implying that they saved us from the dark ages in 2007 with the "invention" of the smartphone... I almost can't believe how insulting that is. As if cell phones hadn't been popular since the 90s, and as if I couldn't live today without the legions of drooling idiots bumping into me because they can't look away from their phones while walking down the street.

Apple is always good for a chuckle. They don't mind stealing concepts/ideas from competitors but go ballistic if there is anything similar or better of a product. I remember the quotes about Steve Jobs wanting to destroy Android, but Apple didn't mind stealing for example the animated slide down menu before he passed away. Sure, Samsung copied Apple with the first galaxy but at this point it doesn't benefit anyone wasting time on a pointless patent battle.

Just look at the stolen concepts with iOS7 alone to round out the point of this pointless battle:

http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-copied-android-in-ios-7-2013-6?op=1

And then you have Jobs admitting Google had better cloud services to 'catch up' with:

Samsung's lawyers displayed a never-before-seen 2010 e-mail from Steve Jobs laying out the agenda for Apple's executives in 2011. "Holy war with Google" was an entry high up on the list. The e-mail also revealed areas where Apple felt that it was behind Android. "Strategy: catch up to Google cloud services," read another line item on Jobs' e-mail. "Apple is in danger of holding on to the old paradigm too long (innovator's dilemma)."
