That's what you guys got out of the article? If that's the criteria you have for news then news doesn't exist. Every news organization Fox, MSNBC, etc etc sells a story. The facts are as reported. Ted Cruz is one of many Conservatives who used the shutdown as leverage. His face was gleefully all over Fox News being labeled as a hero a cowboy. Even McCain said the Republicans were responsible and that people like Cruz were making a ...

Google is being petty because Windows refuses to use Google search. Not only have they not been creating apps, but they have been blocking Windows from accessing what's already available. No matter, Google is becoming worse than Apple. Windows can do better. Luckily the browser on WP8 is amazing and pretty much don't need all these little apps for every little thing. Between the built in Bing search and the internet explorer browser I'm better off.

in the Article: ITC Says Samsung Violated Apple Patents, Orders Ban forum

This still provides an unfair advantage to Apple. Essentially, by dropping the ban against Apple it's telling Apple they can use steal not pay for any SEP and the other company has no negotiating rights. Anyone else using the technology pays a fee. Why does Apple get to all of a sudden decide we want to use this, but not pay.. The whole patent system is horrible. Until it gets fixed these bans need to stop. Most of them never ...

Anti trust laws
Jun 19, 2013, 8:26 AM
in the Article: Bing Voice Search Faster, More Accurate on Windows Phone forum

Technically anti trust laws prohibit this type of behavior. However companies are finding ways around this by claiming that hardware and/or software prevents them from distributing exact copies across all platforms. Which is a blatant lie. Google claimed WP browser didn't meet certain qualification to run Google maps, but later admitted to intentionally blocking WP from accessing it with no reason as WP were perfectly capable of using the maps. The other way they get around antitrust laws is by ...

Are you blind? Look at the number of acquisitions both ATT and Verizon have made. I wish there was a report hat showed their increase in customers without acquisitions. Or for that matter the increase in network coverage.

Actually, Sprint has another person to blame. The government. Sprint acquired Nextel for two reasons. Their customer loyalty/customer service and for their network. However, in response to 9/11 the government essentially decided to TAKE the spectrum from Sprint with ZERO promise of replacement spectrum. When you pay that much into a company and then have the government step on your plans of course youre going to suffer. After than Sprint spent much of it's time trying ...

I find it funny they decide to file suit against Samsung, but not against other companies that are using the exact same concept in their phones. I'd be more in their favor if they weren't picking and choosing only to block phones they see as a threat. If people are catching up then re-invent yourself instead of putting out the exact same phone for the last x years.

Finally. Someone says it. It's funny APPLE has the most resources out of all companies and yet it chooses the litigation to hinder competition. All this protect IP crap is bull as like with many companies a LOT of these patents they are fighting over were bought, NOT developed. Buying a patent or patenting something that existed as an idea before you actually developed it shouldn't get this type of injunction. Add to ...

If Samsung can prove they arrived on their decision using their own R&D, meaning their own customer/user resource to identify the best way of operating their systems, search the entire phone and prove that it is not one of the driving features for people buying the phone, which it isn't the case will likely be thrown out. Secondly, It's sad you can't see this as a stall tactic by Apple. Essentially, all they want to do ...

You do know that Apple is trying to get injunctions against all of those right? And some people will buy those, some people will not. If you consider the Note and the SIII inferior to the Iphone or Nexus. If the Nexus becomes unavailable what do you think people are gonna buy. Here's something to consider. If what you say is true and people are just gonna buy another Samsung, why is Apple even bothering to ...

Actually they would. There are several reasons. Let's say if Ford knows that the Mercedes is going to sell well. there are some people who are on the fence about buying either a Ford or a Mercedes or perhaps some other third party car. Let's say Dodge. Dodge is not a threat to Ford. Ford blocks Mercedes, now the people on the fence don't have Mercedes as an option, they buy Ford. Some ...

Actually the problem is the lawyers. The thing about the law is that it has to be interpreted. So a good lawyer can argue that a law does or does not apply under certain circumstances.

Re: Apple seems like a spoiled brat
Jun 30, 2012, 12:55 AM
in the Article: Patent Injunction May Stop Sales of Galaxy Nexus forum

I concur with muchdrama. One of the patents Apple sued over was a common design patent. Basically a flat board with a mostly screen front surface. Something a 2 year old might have drawn and looks like EVERY tablet out there. That's not innovation. They weren't even the first to do it. And it doesn't account for how it gets done. If I design a program to complete an action, you shouldn't ...

in the Article: Patent Injunction May Stop Sales of Galaxy Nexus forum

Please don't give Apple any ideas. The common design patent they have is BS as well as the more recent patent they filed. Oh well it is what it is. This is like a race car driver throwing out oil or nails behind his car to slow down the competition. Don't worry though, the bad guy loses in the end.

-_-. Apple used to be a winning team. The focus is on used to be. If you haven't caught on yet, they are drowning. They have spent too much time relying on fanboys who worship them instead of pushing forward. If their incremental updates (hardware and software) hasn't alerted you to their inevitable downfall, then you'd probably have stayed on the Titanic as it was sinking as well. The reason they are suing isn't ...

Re: Ripping off designs vs. FRAND patents.
Jun 23, 2012, 3:39 AM
in the Article: Apple Accuses HTC of Abusing Essential Patents forum

What you wrote was actually pretty biased. There term fair cannot be put into any direct quantity. Meaning, just because Apple thinks it's not fair does not mean that it isn't fair. There is a board that reviews such things, but again, what criteria does one use to determine fairness? Potential cost to the company, profit made by use of the patent. I think if anything Apple is hiding behind FRAND in many cases. If ...

How can you not see a problem with this? 1.) Consumer lose out. They will lose a variety of phones. HTC is primarily sold through T-Mobile. AT&t primarily beds with Apple although they have other devices, it's not likely they will focus on those at all. 2.) Price wise T-Mobile has pressured the others to lower their prices. With T-Mo out, there is no pressure. 3.)Jobs!!!!! Go to the mall. There are probably 2 T-mobile booths and ...

I think this is a ploy to bring attention to the no cell while driving law. You could argue that since one is dangerous the other is just as dangerous. Or conversely if one is stupid the other is stupid. The problem is, if you're driving and wreck you could take not only your own life but other's around you. If you're walking and you're too busy to pay attention to the 2000lb+ vehicle headed your way. ...

My guess is Verizon. ATT is Iphone centric, Tmobile is HTC centric, Sprint is well, Sprint. Although Tmobile started the whole Android thing, Verizon seems to have taken it to another level. This definitely looks like a droid phone. It sucks that phones aren't more cross network capable, I wish all the companies would just switch to the same network, it's fix coverage issue, then they would compete based on what they should compete for ...

Ummm, that is what backwards compatible means. It means the later technology is usable with the older hardware. Example, Xbox360 is backwards compatible with some old xbox games. So T-mobile could mean that old phones would be backwards compatible with the new LTEHSPA towers, OR they could mean that the new technology is compatible with the existing towers. I would think they mean the first option. The reason this is good, is because most T-mo ...

Microsoft has already said that copy and paste is coming and it's already in the newer development kits. As far as multitasking. Microsoft is limitiing things so they can deal with issues that may come up one at a time. Even when you beta test things you don't always catch all the bugs. I'm glad Microsoft is changing things up. Hopefully the phone makers will put together hardware that works (Dell/HTC) I really ...
