    So umm if Google doesn’t have anything to worry about why did they feel it was necessary to provide monetary and legal support to Samsung http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57490398-37/how-googles-stealth-support-is-buoying-samsung-in-apple-fight/ #captainobvious

    Public statements and private sentiments are two different things

    In my other article I mention notifications as something iOS has taken from Android. However it’s pretty clear that most of the Android OEMs started by ape-ing the iPhone. Now things may be diverging. This decision will force more of that “innovation”

    “Rather than a negative for consumers I would argue that in the long run
    the verdict probably is a good thing for consumer choice”

    WOW I don’t even know where to start.

    Mimicry? Shouldn’t then Apple be sued for making an iphone, cause you know my UTC Starcom had rounded edges and a smartphone os long before an Iphone even existed.

    Someone has be brain-formatted by apple

    umm maybe cause any smart company would love to get a look
    at the legal strategy that will inevitably be brought against them.

    I also had a UTC Starcom WinMo handset that looked nothing at all like the iPhone.

    did it have rounded corners or didn’t it? Did it have bluetooth, infrared, contacts, sms, camera, email, ringtones. The implied argument is that Apple should not be able to sue a company for “copying” when they themselves did the EXACT same thing.

    Software patents should be good for 1 or 2 years, period, IMO.
