This story isn't true.

As for the ruling, it's a joke...of course the tablets look alike, it's a general design that has been around for decades and Apple most certainly did not invent it:

ZOMG!!! The rectangular screen has little icons on it, and when you touch them it opens the programs!!!! Where is Palm in all of this?


If they want they can go after apple for it. I have no problems with that. Don't be hater dude, but that doesn't even function nearly as close to a android or apple phone.

That wasn't really my point. What I was getting at was that Apple was going after Samsung, because the general design was similar to Apple's products. My point was that's ridiculous because the general design is something so basic, that you shouldn't be able to patent it.

If anyone is hating it's Apple. They know the can't compete with Samsung anymore, so they are using lawyers to shut the door on competition.

Change as legal tender and the law.

In Canada as outlined in the Currency Act not including purchases using loonies or toonies the max is $10 in coins. For loonies its $25 and Toonies its $40.

In the USA you can use any denomination of coins to pay government agencies but private companies.persons or businesses are free to develop their own policies as to how and when to accept any denominations of cash except where there is a state law in place which says otherwise.

So Apple would be free to refuse the nickels as payment.

General design is basic yes, but right now the samsung galaxy phones look somewhat similar to the iphones. Much more then Iphone to that device you just showed. And infact apple does have a legit case against not only Samsung but anyone that is making an smart phone in the mode of the iphone.
Lets put it this way, SAmsung should stick with their line of products. Apple is going to go after them hard. It's funny how they are inventing so many phones too, lol! They just introduced the windows phone, ironically they might be sued by Nokia, as that is their main line of phones. We'll see what happens. hahahah

The patent is just for the basic design though and should never have been issued. You can't patent or copyright an idea. And even if you could, it wasn't Apple who came up with it.

The greatest losers in all of this are the consumers. Obviously some people love being spoonfed whatever overpriced product Apple gives them but choice is always a better thing.

To give people an idea of what is going on, this article shows one of the patents Apple is trying to enforce:

http://www.litigatin...ts-fun-but.html

Its a rectangular screen with a border around it.....Apple invented that? It's essentially an electronic clipboard.

Why is it hard to believe that I actually did the math myself? Googling for information took longer than the calculation

While it's absolutely possible, and I applaud you if so, I found it ironic that in a thread based on thin air that some people were too ready to believe another person would equally be as quick to believe that someone did all their own math and should deserve credit.

It was more a point to not immediately believe something just because it's on the internet and sounds official versus any offence to you directly.

It's not even relevant. It's just another anti apple thing to make apple seem like they are not the first for something and they don't have a case. the Iphone is not the first smart phone. My friends were using smart phones back in 2005, however the Iphone is the first innovate smart phone ever made, that has the dial pad on the screen, and the first phone ever to have "applications." On top of that, apple was the first company to ever invent the tablet. The above is jsut another anti apple type of useless b.s. Also if any of those companies want, they can go after apple. I have no problem with that.

Samsung, please invent your own sh!t. Warranty with these guys is garbage. I'm kinda glad they got dinnged 1 billion.

Dumb phones in the early 2000s had installable games. They were quite limited, but it was still possible. PDAs, Nokia S60 smartphones and Windows Mobile all had third party applications long before the iPhone was announced. In fact one of the most mentioned drawbacks of the iPhone at launch, and what made people question if the iPhone was even truly a smartphone, was the inability to install 3rd party applications (as well as the lack of copy and paste).

Legally, Apple can tell the trucks to just turn around and go back so Samsung.

Every private business or company can have policies to reject a certain type of payment, like how some stores can reject larger bills such as $100.

Nokia can pretty much end this all.






... By releasing an android based phone. There are many people out there, on the internet even saying so. That if Nokia goes to Android, they are all over that phone, and no just one, but many people including a couple of my friends. Do it Nokida. YOu do this, you guys will own the smart phone market. Of course apple might be on their behinds too, but do it!

Then Microsoft should sue the living !@#$% out of apple then. I wouldn't defend apple if that happened. If indeed they weren't the first to invent the tablet. That being said, I never even heard of that so called tablet pc, so kinda irrelevant. Might end up going nowhere.

Wasn't the Apple Newton (as crappy as that was) before all these products? It was Palm that perfected that idea.

Technically all the patents should go to the writers of Star Trek, after all they had simulated touch screen consoles, pad devices, and mobile devices thought about before any manufacturer did.

Or even Chester Gould with Dick Tracy's wrist watch radio/tv receiver in it.

How about Commodore Computers shouldn't they sue Microsoft and Apple for stealing their ideas?

If you don't like Apple products, don't buy them. Better yet build something better yourself and get rich.
