Not just that but they can charge as much as they want and to tiny price increases along the way, isntead of having to be semi competitive and pricing within the realm of what normal people would pay for a product.

Your right man I've been rocking apple since the iPod came out, and never thought I'd leave but the stuff they're doin with Sammy is jus uncool. As of now I'm waiting for the gnote2 instead of the iPhone. As a consumer/techie I simply can't and don't agree with apple and this banning and stifling innovation. I still like the iPhone/iPad, but am definitely goin with a note

Dear wanna be Steve Jobs(Tim Cook),

Quit trying to be like him, im glad he is dead because all he wanted to do was force the enitre world to have an iPhone. Apple, instead of complaining and whining about people (copying) you, why dont you pose a little challenge? for example: "To all wireless manufacturers, i challenge you to beat iPhone is sales and overall quality, do whatever you have to do to attempt to beat us, for we (Apple) will do whatever it takes to drain your bank accountsand spy on your technology because it is so much better than ours"

Who is this moron to be telling them to f**k off, as you can see, apple is becoming desperate. How could they think that the Galaxy SIII infringed their patents. I hope that the GS4 can trash all those iPhone 5's. I personally would never ever buy an apple device.

When even CNN features an editorial comparing you to an increasingly evil drug selling maniac, Apple, it's time to kindly sit down and shut the f**k up.

It is to you when Google and Motorola do it. In fact, it's so wrong to you that you make up reasons to justify why you think it's wrong.

Or, here's a response you're more likely to understand, given our past interactions:

APPLESAUCE!

Here is a simple answer to your question:
Protecting "YOUR" property is not wrong and is encouraged in any shape or form.
However, Apple is not protecting their proprety. The only thing here that is actual intellectual property of apple is S2U (and this is to the best of my knowledge, S2U might have existed as a concept prior to the iPhone, however, since I do not have any knowledge of such prior concepts, I will not argue against you or Apple on this one), all others existed. Even Apples Data Detector patent is based off of the capacitive screen prototype I/O Code from 2003, resistive screen input code from the 1980s and has been used on devices for a long time, even by Apple itself in the form of the Newton Tablet.
Three out of the four so called infringed patents do not belong to apple at all.

S2U preexisted ios. Look at all the locks you encounter on a daily basis, especially for doors. Most use a •gasp• sliding mechanism to initiate a locking function. The design most similar to apple's concept (to my knowledge) is the style of lock typically found on fences and the like, with a long bolt with a knob protruding from it for the use to slide the bolt sideways within its holder to initiate the locking function. It's not a new concept. Hasn't been for centuries.

I was planning to get the iPhone 5 as a backup phone for my Android but will have to cancel it as a sign of protest to Apple. WP8 will gladly be considered.

And really, slide to unlock? With the Note and S3 you can literally swipe in any direction to unlock the phone. f**king. Bogus.
