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.

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

Apple's greed is going to be its downfall.

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.

Apple doesn't innovate, they steal. Most consumers hav no idea.


A couple of Steve Jobs quotes for you

We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas

and

Good artists copy; great artists steal.


R.I.P Steve Jobs, but your legacy still lives on :rolleyes:
