Ever seen that neat magnetic connector on a Mac? Yup, the same one that conveniently protects you from rolling your precious gadget on the floor after you’ve tripped on the power cord for the nth time. Soon iOS devices might have…

davecann2 I don't like iOS, but I have to agree with you! There is nothing wrong with this article. There is no reason for a post like that!

That's because your a troll superandroidevo an article like this or any IOS article you go to, you just put your lines out in the water. Just because I'm tired of all this patent crap doesn't mean my post was hateful and many of your posts are hateful so I don't know what the hell your talking about.

I can't troll on a website in which I am a member. This article is on PhoneArena.com because it is relevant to the mobile industry. I came to this article to post on it because PhoneArena.com put it here so we ALL (even people like yourself who are unregistered) can post our opinions on it. I am tired too, of the patent stuff but it is relevant & PhoneArena.com is doing an excellent job in providing great up to the minute information. I STILL don't get how I am trolling though! Ohh & davecann2 said you were hateful so I don't even know why you addressed that to me!

Although I did get a slight feeling of Apple hate from your comment my reponce was mainly ment to be sarcastic while directly pointing out the iBashing on this site. Sorry Heatfan that I used your comment to point out my opinion. STill you have to admit that there was a slight hint of Apple bias in there.
Personaly, I do get annoyed with the bickering but I also kind of enjoy the debates.

I don't hate the iPhone or iPad,I have couple of iPhones, before there was android that's what I used, but I give anything a chance and I tried the droid 1 and liked it more then the iPhone, for me it's better then IOS for other people IOS may be better for them, but I like to trash these one minded isheep, believe me they threw the first blow they hate anything thats not apple they won't give anything a chance they think apple the company can do no wrong, believe me they do plenty wrong. I hate Apple as company, the whey they handle business, they're patent trolls

"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
Nowhere does it say "unless you are a member of the website" trolling is trolling, if you post flamebait one a website you are not a member of its trolling, but if you post the same thing on a website you are a member of, it isn't?

Thanks for the explanation, now WE know what trolling really is. Let's make sure WE all never troll.

I personally don't like apple but technically this is already one of their patents on their computers so why shouldn't they be able to use it on their phones?

I agree if they hold the patent for the Mac then why do they need it for the iPhone or iPad? Can't they just put the device on their other products?
