I think their customers are plenty pleased. Go a page or two into the thread listing and look for the latest JD Power survey.

With satisfied customers like that, you don't radically change the recipe each generation. Let peoplpe who want that go to HTC and Samsung for phones.

Sigh.....
Google may have something to say about the "donut" patent since one iteration of their Android OS was named "Donut."

Not that it'd matter, though.

Apple Sues Polish Grocery Store Over A.pl Name

Quote:
Two weeks before unveiling its next-generation iPhone, Apple was busy filing a lawsuit against Polish grocery site A.pl.

As reported by Polish news outlet Telepolis, Apple is railing against the online deli site because its title is just a little too reminiscent of the Cupertino-based company's moniker.

A.pl, which advertises straight-to-your-door delivery, goes by the full name A.PL Internet SA. While ".pl" is actually Poland's country-wide domain, Apple is arguing a trademark issue, demanding that the Polish Patent Office cancel the site's trademark. The main allegations, according to Telepolis, are the likeness of characters, and "the use of Apple's reputation," the site said.

You mean it's not the first time Apple Sued a food vendor.

I agree they have many satisfied customers and shouldn't over-tinker. (I love my nano(s), and am really tempted by the new one.)

It's there tendency to not just focus on that, but to say (to beat an analogy to death): "We make the best Apple pies that customers want and love. However, you cannot make apple pies that are: round, contain apples and sugar, are baked, or that are called 'apple pies'." That's what bugs me.

OK this is getting ridiculous now. German court upholds Apple case against Motorola:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19598355

Quote:
The basic version of Google's Android operating system displays a glow effect when a user reaches the end of a list. So, the firm could revise an adapted version used on Motorola devices to abandon their use of an added bounce-back feature.

However, he added that if Apple posted a bond of 25m euro ($32.6m; £20.1m), it could now force the devices off shop shelves, and for an additional sum it could have them destroyed or recalled.
It's not the legal fight over the patent that I find ridiculous, it's the disproportionate penalty available. Really, because a scrolling effect on a tablet device bounces back in a way patented by Apple, they have the power to get all unsold stock destroyed?

Judge orders new trial to redetermine half of the Apple/Samsung damages

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...92010820130301

Short version:
- verdicts on infringement stand
- 600M of damages stand
- 450M of damages struck out
- new trial to detemine what figure should replace the 450M
