This disgusts me beyond belief. As I have said before, time and time again... Apple is the "Hitler" of technology. A monopolistic, albeit "New World Order" of Technology. What is more worrying, is the users... bedazzled, and almost somewhat "hypnotised" (Proper British Spelling here btw) by the shiny, shininess of contemporary "mind control" ah la bullshit. What is it with the end user of Apple Products who think there is nothing better than this fabricated s**t. It's fcuking worrying. Apple users seem so "dumbed" down by the mediocrity (which I think and always have thought) of this sadistic corporation. Steve, jobs, you were a twat. Always a twat, and always will be a twat beyond comprehension. Your bitterness against Microsoft turned you into the Lucifer of technology - a somewhat polite, looking geek, with the face that mums would love, was a deceitful disguise the whole time. If everything was the same in life, life would be boring, and tedious, and possibly depressing. This is what Apple wants, and that's "its" target.

As for the Apple Users out there... you have seen Night of the Living Dead? Probably not because mummy wouldn't let you, but this is how you lot are turning....social zombies.

Rant done. So sue me for, erm "FREEDOM OF SPEECH"!

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

The worst of it is that patent law lets them get away with all of thiss**t, that's what p**ses me off the most. Not to defend Apple here, but is anybody really surprised it's gotten this bad with how the laws are written? It was literally just a matter of time until a company ended up doing something like this.

LOL Tam, don't you know what Apple stands for? If not, here it is:

A = Average
P = People's
P = Pretty
L = Little
E = Electronics

XD

I agreed with you totally on what you said.

If you are interested on tech details of some of the 27 newly awarded "Apple Patents", here are the links for more readings.

Part1: http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2012/06/apple-wins...plays.html
Part2: http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2012/06/apple-wins...ature.html

Anyone notice the Palm look alike device in Part I near the bottom of the article? ;) It's the patent for light sensitive displace.

Most of these patents are quite vague, and can be applied to any kind of computer / device user interface. Such as the one for "Incremental secure backup and restore of user settings and data", see link below. Practically, Apple can sue anyone developed / developing a software for restore and backup!

http://patft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect...ple+Inc%22

Anyone has a little bit of knowledge about hardware / software engineering, knows that there are hundreds (if not thousands) of ways to develop the same thing using different methods. It's just outrageous that Apple wants to claim to own them all!

Like joke about before here in HWA, any Square device with a screen, which can be touched by human fingers, are owned by Apple. LOL ;) No one on Earth should design a device with the same specifications, without first pay royalty fees to Apple!

For the users, if you want to touch it, you need to pay, of course. And if you want to touch it again, you need to pay each time you touch it. XD

Well, at least in UK, the judges are not favoring Apple.
Read news: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2406834,00.asp
Actual court paper: http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Patents/2012/1882.pdf

It's really pathetic that one has to compare the exterior designs of the two devices in excruciating details, in order to result in the conclusion of not infringing patents. And yes, they did go into detail discussion of a "rectangular design". ;) See the excerpts below from the PDF document above.
(i) A rectangular, biaxially symmetrical slab with four evenly, slightly rounded corners;
92. This feature has two elements - the “rectangular, biaxially symmetrical slab” and the “four evenly, slightly rounded corners”. In relation to design freedom I will address them separately.
93. As to the first element, Mr ____’s view was that display devices are historically rectangular and biaxially symmetrical. There is no doubt that display screens are rectangular for functional reasons, but although the screen itself is strictly rectangular in shape, designers have freedom as regards the shape of the device itself. Mr____ illustrated this point with a number of examples.
...
95. A broadly rectangular shape is to a large extent driven by the function of using a rectangular screen but designers have a fair degree of design freedom and an important aspect of the exercise of that design freedom relates to aesthetics. Designers choose the overall shape to enhance the appearance of the article.
96. As to the second element, a significant debate at trial related to rounded corners. Mr____’s evidence was that rounded corners are preferred for manufacturing reasons (it is easier to make them, especially by plastics injection moulding) and for ergonomic reasons (they are comfortable, safe and easy to use). He also explained that a large degree of rounding will reduce the display size or increase the size of the device and risks wasting volume. The latter is important because these devices are made as thin as possible and a smaller volume means less room for components.
...
(i)(d) Overall significance of “a rectangular, biaxially symmetrical slab with four evenly, slightly rounded corners”
104. The rectangular display screen is totally banal and determined solely by function. Apart from that there are some other design constraints applicable to this feature but they do not account for the identity between the Samsung tablets and the Apple design. These devices do not need to have biaxial symmetry nor be strictly rectangular. Nevertheless the significance of this identity is reduced by the fact that there are other designs in the design corpus which are very similar too.


Don't forget, Apple was not the first one to invent the tablet, nor the touch screen interface. In fact, Samsung was one of the pioneers in Tablet PCs way before Apple has iPhone and iPad. Remember the Samsung Q1? Also don't forget, Samsung provided and still provides chipsets for Apple iPhones and iPads, see, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_A4

I'd say, Samsung should cease designing chipset for Apple! The f**k with them, let them figure their own chips and see how long they will survive in the increasing smart phone / tablet market.

What's next law suit from Apple? Apple will sue Samsung for unfair and unethical marketing strategy by using sexy women, instead of a grey haired dead dude Apple used. XD

(And related news regarding chipset cuts, http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57532126-37/samsung-official...le-report/ )

Way to go, Samsung. F**king A! (A for Apple, of course) XD

Loool, now if only They would cease Apple's CPU production. Even if they loose money its not like Samsung wasn't doing good before Apple.

Typical Apple iDiots (Aye-dee-ots), see for yourselves:

Bunch of dudes robbed an Apple store with their own Big Money Waste ultimate driving machine... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFw1ApVD1Vk

34 countries of iDiots waiting for iPads... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sh9e7pjUmI

One of the Korean dudes in the 2nd video...
http://www.cbc.ca/gfx/images/news/topstories/2012/11/02/i-ipad...518949.jpg

Anyone in Korea supporting Apple, instead of Samsung, should be consider treason! LOL ;) At least the North Koreans are more humble with their apple stores: http://1humor.com/img/upload/02102012131653-apple-store.jpg XD


Seriously, someone please knock some sense into this world and stop these madness. Everyone need to understand that Apple products are using the same f**king electronic components / circuit boards as other products in the same category. It's over priced and it's over hyped!

No one need to wait inline for Android and PC products, when they are cheaper, more functionality, more selections to choose from, and less restrictive in the user experience.

>> Re: Samsung Wins One - "Big Blow to Apple"
.
http://money.cnn.com/2013/06/04/technology/mobile/apple-samsung-itc/
...The International Trade Commission's long-awaited ruling bans Apple from importing or selling the AT&T (T, Fortune 500)-compatible models of the iPhone 4, 3GS and 3, as well as the AT&T 3G-connected versions of the iPad and iPad 2....
The ban does not affect the newest generation of Apple's products, the iPhone 5 and the fourth-generation iPad, which use different technology than the earlier devices.

The commission did not find that Apple violated any of the three other patents Samsung named in its case. But the rest of the ruling is a big blow to Apple....

Microsoft and Apple (and others) unleash thermonuclear war on Google and Android
By Adrian Kingsley-Hughes for Hardware 2.0, November 4, 2013....

"I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion the money that Apple held in the bank at the time] in the bank, to right this wrong," Jobs told Isaacson....

...a joint venture owned by Apple, Microsoft, BlackBerry, Ericsson, and Sony, have kicked into motion a barrage of lawsuits against a raft of defendants that include Google, Samsung, LG Electronics, HTC, and Huawei. In other words, all big players in the Android market....

These lawsuits are particularly damaging to the Android machine because they target it on two fronts:
(-targets (Google's) revenue source from Android)
-going after Android licensing fees from hardware OEMs)
