In the end.....Apple may be left with 1 million patents and 200 customers.

When they copy other mnufacturers.
Check out ios7.

Apple are just Losers.

Would you tell me exactly what did Apple develop for ages before bringing it to the market?

The capacitive touchscreen first used on LG Prada? http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_ke850_prada-1828.php

The application store found on a lot of earlier platforms?

The grids of icons?

Samsung did copy the original iPhone design in the Galaxy S. After that I just don't get it. Why is the Note 2 even listed in the to-ban devices? I have a Note 2 and it looks nothing, zero, nada like an iPhone, neither hardware nor software wise. Apple is getting silly greedy and stagnating the market with these obnoxious demands.

What a bunch of hypocrites.
All these big companies avoid paying legitimate taxes (morally speaking)with all their sneaky tricks.
This is according to the Australian Government.
They want to do something about these big companies fleecing countries of legitimate taxes.
What a bunch of phonies?!?!?!?!?
They have too much power. Money is power.
Power without Justice is just Violence.

apple: the company that never grew up.

Hi I'm Apple and Samsung makes my processors. It's a good idea to sue them until they stop making stuff for us and beat us completely.

Apple still generate so much hate :)

It still means its the most popular and wanted product in the world. The illegal copying king samsung make sure to spread this news, so that they might gain pity and sell their worthless copy phone from cold stocks.

But no worries, every 1 mth, there is a new copy phone from Samsung, Good Hunting Apple.. you can sue them once every month!!

Apple becomes more and more pathetic. By its actions and lack of innovation it repels more and more customers. And yeah, it's so easy to infringe a "patent" if Apple patents such things as a "square shape"! Pathetic, too bad...

Last two generations of iPhone looks very similar one to another. Probably they run out of ideas so they trying to find different way of making money. Pity that they go this way to make some money. Hopefully they will invent something new that will revolutionize whole mobile market instead of do almost nothing and rip off poor ppz that r blinded by the brand appearance.

...am sure neither the swipe to open nor other things may explain the success of Samsung phones. They are just light years better than the old Applef..ts.
...am sure if Apple produced a SUPER SMART NOTE 3....
But they don't, so they go cry mummy to the courts

AnonD-87800, 25 May 2014At least Android is FREE. You can do anything you want with you... moreIts that prison that attracts folk..Apple made a smartphone easy to use by normobs and that why folk buy them whereas Android is for geeky folk who want to do anything with their phone..I enjoy both..I do get bored with IOS so go to Android for more fun then get frustrated go back to IOS and so on..

This suing each other is fair if you copy something that is patented,, you try spending ages bringing something to market and then Joe Bloggs comes along and just rips of your idea you would be angry and sue,,What they should do is just agree to share tech or licence it for a reasonable fee it must be better than these million pound court battles..

Apple are a very greedy company and this eventually will be their downfall,OR,like all the great platforms before them they will go out of favour and lose market share fast..
