Another example of Apple being "ethically challenged" as a corporation.

Avovymous, 18 Oct 2017so you're saying other brands are not stealing other patents to ... moreAt least other brands are not claiming they "invented" it! Crapple is just empty shell which exist on borrowed technology, borrowed R&D, borrowed manufacturing and everything else. The only thing they invented is a brand, but behind it all added value is created by somebody else e.g. if not for Samsung iPhone would not exist. Fair to say crapple had very good idea of how to combine all the existing technology to make smartphone with better user experience. That is not to say good smartphone not existed before iPhone, some had good cameras, others had good screens, but iPhone was the one to offer everything in one device balanced and polished to work. So where is the problem? Problem is that crapple is just a brand it is not technology company, so they had to find who have "know how" to make it real and that was Samsung. Check how much of original iPhone was made by Samsung - almost every single component, same goes for 3G, 3GS and 4, only starting from 4S apple started diversifying. Not making anything themselves, just using more divers group of suppliers. What I am trying to say - without it's suppliers crapple is empty shell not capable of making anything at all, contrary companies like Samsung have capacity to develop and produce every single component in house, whenever they do it or not is another matter, but they do not blindly rely on other people doing their job like crapple.

I think you are missing the point, its not about the money but about how Apple are stealing tech from everyone and combining it to make their products

AnonD-397942, 17 Oct 2017One more thing, ios 11 has bugs and 1 update every 1 or 2 weeks.... moreHow many android phones have a fix for the WPA2 security issue? I think it‘s almost 0%. Apple‘s latest public beta, which I have installed, already includes it so I‘m safe, that‘s it.

I will predict the comments without looking at them: 95% hate and bash against Apple, 1% „Sony Fanboy Bitches“ saying that Apple is overrated and Sony is underrated, 4% reasonable people who think beyond it and know „if this patent troll wins against Apple, it will also win against small companies and make them having to close the doors“
