Apple are just so afraid of healthy competition that they try sue Samsung to eliminate competition as they are shaking from the success of the Galaxy S III. Sold 2.5 times the amount of iphone 4 sales did on preorder. S3 is king and Apple hate that. Oh god I hope I don't get sued now for using the word apple without permission.

Oh come on! Not a single person seriously considering buying a Galaxy SIII is gonna get the aging iPhone 4s just because the Galaxy gets delayed a bit. Try making better or cheaper products Apple! It's called "fair play" but you probably wipe your dirty, dirty shoes all over it. Unveil the iPhone 5 already and make it better than the SIII. That's the way to go, not another Sueance!
I just bought a new laptop. Since it's supposed to be a graphics machine I was considering a Macbook Pro. Then I woke up and got an ASUS with far better specs and an extended 4 year warranty for 3/4 of the price. Apple forgets that people think. Some of them at least.

Wow As If Apple Just Wants To Dominate U.S With All The Apple Stuff Not all people like Iphones and iPads Sometimes they prefer Other phone's made by HTC and Samsung This Would be a bad marketing strategy by Apple.

Apple sue Apple sue Apple sue. The name Apple is becoming synonymous with the word SUE. It is making me sick and probably every other Consumers out there. We are always being bombarded with the news about Apple suing everybody. Obviously, it's a desperate pathetic move by Apple to eliminate competition. Apple probably fail to realize that they are just generating more enemies with its childish altitude- that is the consumers which is the main factor for success.

Apple is the real copycat. But how come they accuse everyone a copycat when in fact they steal the ideas from someone else?:

WWDC is coming up in a few days. Samsung fans should keep an eye on this. It'll show you what's coming up in future Samsung phones.

For Apple fanboys:


It’s hard to believe that someone envisioned tablet PCs 18 years ago, but a dusty video clip from 1994 shows us that there were, in fact, technology visionaries before Steve Jobs (insert “ironic grin” here).

The video shows how newspaper company Knight Ridder saw the news of the future and, darn it, I must say that those guys were spot on with their assumptions. However, what they probably didn’t think their little video would do is seriously hurt Apple’s chances of winning the design patent war against Samsung and other Android tablet manufacturers, a war that is heading towards a conclusion these days.

How did something like this happen? Well, it’s pretty simple. Apple has been accusing Samsung numerous times over the past year or so of ripping off the iPad’s design with its Galaxy Tab slates.

The design in question is a rectangle with rounded corners and a big glass screen, which, for anyone with some sense, doesn’t sound like an awfully original concept. However, as today’s legal system is more complicated than some of us can understand, the legal heads at Apple really had a shot at proving they had invented the whole “rectangle with bla bla…” concept.

That is before this video surfaced, showing off and, hopefully definitively proving, that Apple didn’t, in fact, create a groundbreaking and innovative design concept with the iPad, but rather took something pretty simple and straightforward and refined it and gave it polish.

The 1994 Fiddler/Knight Ridder “tablet” shown in the video below created “the same basic visual impression” as Apple’s D’889 patent for the iPad, Judge Lucy Koh decided recently, basically squashing Apple’s last hope of squeezing some money from Samsung or other technology manufacturers.

Judge Koh’s Court found that “Samsung has raised a substantial question regarding the validity of the D’889 patent on obviousness grounds’’, so, while Apple will probably continue to look for “justice” in courtrooms in the US and all over the globe, Samsung has good chances to be allowed to continue selling and manufacturing Galaxy Tabs.

I’m not one to judge or cast a stone in any direction, but, in this particular case, I would like to offer a sincere and simple opinion, that probably most of you share. Apple, which, indeed, is one of the most innovative technology companies of the past decades, is certainly not honoring its name by continuing to fight pointless legal battle that they don’t even stand a chance to win.

Without having legal studies of any kind (watching every season of the original “Law and Order” doesn’t count, does it?), with some common sense and a bit of reason, I can safely say that hell will freeze before Apple will win any trial referring to one of their products’ designs. I mean, come on, guys, you’re not Picasso and you didn’t invent the straight line, so give up the whole patent folly and start thinking of how you can come up with better, prettier, and snappier devices!

First HTC now Samsung? Apple seems to be scared of the competition using dirty tricks to win. Apple is a such a loser.

I'd say to the people in the US to order your S3 from Canada and let the US telco carriers to sue against Apple in a class action. The farmers who produce apples better watch are next! What a joke Apple, stop sulking and get on with it.

Apple is a parasite that must be exterminated.

Hades, 08 Jun 2012Well... their lawsuits are dumb, fighting over some no real reas... moreFord cannot sue Mercedes for making a car with four wheels because Mercedes was the first car manufactured int he world. The first mass produced card was the Ford Model T. But non the less i couldn't agree more with you about stupid apple! make the iphone 5 720p screen at 4.5 inches or at least 4.3. and make that god awful front facing camera at least a 2mpx so u can recognize the person your chatting with.

Apple needs to stop with this childish bans. Really if I was Samsung I would say to Apple try and ban the release of any of ours phone find another company to make parts for your phone. I would so blacklist Apple like that. Going after other companies for what?

  • emwhy

It seems Apple is working hard to eliminate all competitors..

  • TechNerdQ88

Another Lawsuit.... Boring. Like everyone says and what millions already know. Apple is whining and crying again. They need to fix thier problems other than trying to take cheap shots at every other company that seems to have something similar to them. Apple's techs are outdated, thier designers aren't any different than porsche designers, and they don't appreciate the company (Samsung) that supplies them the hardware they need for their iphone. Apple's lawsuit just confirms that they don't have what it takes to compete in the Mobile Phone Industry
