Sprint today confirmed reports that a minor system update being distributed to the Samsung Galaxy S III device deactivates one of the features. "The new software update does disable the universal search function on Galaxy S III," said a Sprint spokesperson to Phone Scoop via email. The update also included a security patch. The universal search function is one of the features behind the Apple-Samsung lawsuit patents. It allows device owners to search not only the web, but also the device itself for items from a single search bar. Apple holds a patent for this feature. Sprint said Samsung, not Sprint, was responsible for removing universal search from the Galaxy S III.

Patients were made to protect property and ideas...

But what this has come to is just frivolous lawsuits - used to put pressure on others to fork over money, for literally nothing.

If only you could obtain a patient for having devices power on by battery.....

You see where I'm getting at. Where do we draw the line - and why is Apple so malicious?
They are so malicious becuase they only have one single damn product ! And it's not even that great !

Not that their computers are even worth half of what they cost, the iPhone is really their only product, and I'm sure they will do whatever they ...
Sorry, but the epic fail of your use of the word "patients" instead of "patents" makes any point you make seem foolish to begin with.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around how one could obtain a "patient" for powering devices by a battery.
