Their problem is very simple guys:

They are out of ideas. Big daddy is gone and they have absolutely no clue what direction to take. They once had total control of the mobile market, then one day, Android came along and gave users a better, faster experience and their #1 supplier of hardware joined the Android wagon so they are not happy because they feel betrayed so now they want to sue everybody and their mother and patent everything from a swype to a fingerprint. That my friends is called: Desperation.

Apple is scared to death that Android will take over and bury them. Companies like Samsung and HTC are innovating and changing and making their Droid products better and better while Google is perfecting Android more and more and that scares the hell out of Apple. They won't admit it, but its the truth. Their egos are way too high to admit defeat.

If they don't change the way they think, lower prices, open iOS more, keep wasting millions on law suits and perform other changes, they are going to sink. They may have more money than the U.S Government, but money doesn't last forever.

As far I see it, all they have left is the tablet market and OSX, because Windows 8 sucks and its not a threat to them. They are loosing the mobile market to Android (if they haven't already).

Eh, Apple are taking exactly the same steps with OSX that MS took with Windows 8. The problem is they're doing it bit by bit, which I think in the end will come back to bite them.

Windows 8 is far from terrible and it's selling really well.

Nice apple, everyone else uses the Qi standard, so of course apple decides to make their own standard that won't work with the standard...

Unfortunately this is the ONLY way they can continue locking their users in. Make everything proprietary so people have to keep buying their hardware.

I guess you're also just as unhappy about Samsungs nonstandard proprietary extensions to DLNA to lock their customers into the Samsung ecoverse as well ? as well as their proprietary Apple like docking plugs ?

I guess when people say that next Apple is going to patent air, they weren't joking.

Hope these kind of actions from Apple wakes up the US court systems eyes a little. Apple is buying/patenting every little thing they can to use late against competitors. Imagine the patent licensing fees the competition will have to make to Apple.

Apple is done with innovation and have for some time. Said it way before Jobs was announced sick, Apple relied to much on that man. Seems like they have been having more problems and making more dickish moves since his passing. And I never thought that possible.

Well, when it becomes blatantly obvious what Apple is doing, even for the extremely stupid, then the Courts will have to wake up and not ignore the issue anymore.

Have you seen our court system lately? It's more screwed up than our patent system.

[/quote]it's been blatantly obvious for awhile, and as long as Apple has enough money to pay people off (someone has to be being payed off somewhere for all this to be allowed) it's going to continue

at this point the government itself is probably gonna have to step in to get this to stop

Missed the part where I said even for the extremely stupid? Has to get that far to reach the US Court system. :)

I think it will be addressed but probably because many of Apple's competition will get enough of it all and start playing hard ball.

Someone page [s]Palm[/s] err HP. This is gonna get ugly
[/quote]

and still after all these years since palm did theirs nobody has be able to do it as good. I think the closest thing now is the charger google made for the nexus 4, and oddly enough the guy behind that at google came from of all places, palm.

That's only if the charging stand has a magnet in it, if it doesn't then no, they still haven't done it right.

And that's wrong because? Nearly every company does it (Including Samsung, HTC, Google and Microsoft)

From the way some people act, it's as if they think Apple is the only company that ever patents anything.

What do you mean, it's regular standardized(Qi) induction charging. it's done about as right as it can be.
