You poor soul! When you saw a real iphone, did you think it had been crushed by a bus to make it so small?

Fine, it isn't a product you need, want, or use, but that doesn't mean the tens of millions of people who use and enjoy them are wrong.

If someone needs a USB port, SD card slot, thinks a pen is necessary, wants multiple windows, or who knows what, there are other products to meet their needs. They should be happy that they have choices and not waste their lives putting down others who want something different.
I see we are in full agreement here. Apple fans shouldn't be telling others that they have the most advanced devices on the planet and that any features taken out are things that "nobody (or just a small minority) needs" , that walled gardens are always good for people, and the world will be a better place.

Yeap, people should buy what fits their needs and tastes.

Now, if you ever want to see people's heads explode: buy a Mac and an Android tablet. It just doesn't reflect the stereotypes of cliquish technology buying trends these days, so people honestly understand why someone would need that combination.

Sigh. Can't say I didn't see this coming. Litigate instead of innovate.

I wonder how it's going to work out on the long run. Apple's getting some rotten karma, and giving some publicity to Samsung. If this goes to the Supreme Court as it may well be the case, it's going to be epic.

Quote:
The court’s ruling in 1853 of a case involving Samuel Morse’s patent for the telegraph established the tone for these wide-reaching decisions.

In the case of O’Reilly v. Morse, the Supreme Court ruled that abstract ideas weren’t subject to patents, in an opinion from Chief Justice Roger Taney.

In March 2012, the modern Supreme Court cited the 1853 decision in another patent case. In Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Laboratories, the Supreme Court rejected a patent claim for medical tests.
Quote:
“Under today’s looser standards, Morse should own the Web. Companies now seek patents for the slimmest of ideas,” writes Crovitz. “The patent explosion began in the mid-1990s, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ended the requirement that patents specifically define inventions. Now, business processes and algorithms are routinely patented, making it hard to innovate with products like mobile devices without running the risk of violating numerous patents.”

It will be an interesting ride. I like Apple product but I am getting more and more disgusted by their ethical and business practices.

Samsung will most certainly appeal as this suit result is quite contrary to similar patent suits in the EU, South Korea, Japan and Australia. I would be completely surprised if they did not appeal.

Going into historical mode, the movie companies moved wholesale to Los Angeles to avoid Edison's patent trolls back in the early part of the twentieth century.

It does seem that the US Patent Office needs to have an rather severe audit.
