"This industry should not allow one company use its powerful weapon to stop other innovation and take it all...this is not fair,"

weren't they violating Apple's patents in which they were not attempting to innovate at all and were just backpacking off someone else's work?

Oh,please...
If Apple had their way they would outlaw all phones with an operaring system, web browser and email,period. We would be back to the days of two choices: flip phones or iPhones. They had a huge run,made hundreds of billions of dollars,but just can't bear the thought of anyone else having a slice too.

John has a fair point though, there is absolutely nothing "innovative" about blatently copying features.

because a drop down menu ISN'T a blatant copy of androids pull down menu...and "card style" multitasking ISN'T a blatant copy of webos multitasking... Eh? just sayin...apple is an EVIL company. Especially when they build iphones in china at a whopping 8 dollars a piece in actual cost. I'm sure an american can build an iphone in an hour or so, and if the cost goes to 16 an iphone, it'd be ok, because americans with jobs would be able to BUY them...ugh. I hate apple.

Yeah,God forbid Apple actually pay an american 16.00 per iPhone. Why do that with so many slaves desperate enough to have something to eat at least once a day,right??? If they could,they would actually own those poor people too.

So Apple has a patent for a certain function of their phone, even when they very first announced the iPhone, Jobs even said they patented the hell out of it. HTC didn't innovate anything and used a function the iPhone had patented. Apple's argument makes perfect sense. Yes, Apple's drop down menu is basically Androids, however, we are forgetting that Android is Open Source.

I guess you are pulling figures out of your butt for the 8 dollars a piece cost considering tear downs from reputable companies say it costs them almost $200 for all the parts. The screen alone is $16.

They don't have card style multi-tasking..there is 3rd party program that a developer made via Jailbreak that allows you to have multi-tasking like webOS.

Exactly--if it's not Apple's way, it's the highway.

Android is slowly eroding Apple's market share.

As of now,Android is at 50% market share,with iOS at 30%,and dropping.
Next year this time I expect to see iOS at around 12-15%,at best.

You can't beat a company willing to license Android to anyone with a closed ecosystem OS.

Actually, Apple doesn't have any of their own patents. Everything they claim they have, they stole from other companies. Apple is nothing but a pile of **** in the corner of the room and that **** is stinking up the air for others.

Years of research into this bullshit and personal knowledge. Happy?

And your sources would be...? Personal knowledge=personal opinion you mean?

It doesn't make it stealing when they purchase a company and implement that feature or idea into iOS or any other product, they purchased that company and would also receive their patents to obviously avoid being sued for infringement. Same can't be said about HTC, seeing as they lost the lawsuit.

Apple should just stop their Research and Development department because the competition can't implement their own ideas without taking something?

Apple cannot even come up with original names for it's ****ty products. iPhone and IOS were names used by other companies, both of whom sued Apple for infringement and eventually settled.

HTC did not lose anything. They can still sell their excellent, unlike POS Apple, devices in the US.

Apple simply sues others left and right because other companies whose products are far more superior to those of Apple are prohibiting the poor Apple to dominate in the US with their iShit products. Hey, Tim Cook, can you pronounce Sherman Antitrust Act?

But accurate. The patent system in this country is a joke.
