You generally don't get warnings or moderated unless idiots report you. Your post indicated you were going to report him.

Oh no, I'm getting warned by PA but am able to communicate my thoughts and feelings in an articulate, grammatically correct way, whatever will I do?

Check your brain for a tumor, that is literally the only excuse for typing and communicating the way you do.

I agree.
I had to take a few minutes to figure out what he was saying. His comment makes Android fans look bad.
He gets "pride respect honuriszm" or whatever because Google puts out a good line of products? What did he do to help them make it?
Guh. I feel bad that you have to deal with this crap, gallito.

Let's not focus on respecting people with bad grammar. How about the judicial system though...they're getting more and more of my respect with each passing PA article.

It's not just his grammar. It's his spelling, sentence structure, word choice, improper to non existent use of punctuation, syntax etc etc etc etc. It is really difficult to figure out what the hell it is trying to say. I mean obviously the gist is "androyd....suk....apple iz....gud" but FFS pick up a book or something. I would be extremely embarassed if I presented myself and my obvious lack of education to the world in the manner that he does.

Maybe English isn't his first language. I know sometimes auto correct makes my posts indecipherable.

Personally, I think that when we focus on things like spelling and grammar, it detracts from the whole discussion.

Let's talk Apple ... what did they win besides being INSULTED ... yes insult seems to be as good as an honour for them so they keep asking for more and more.

We all win with this outcome. The sooner all of Apple's silly litigation is dismissed, the sooner everyone can get back to concentrating on innovating. That means we all get better devices sooner.

Apple being owned in their own game, its a damn shame. Glad these judges are beginning to see right through their BS.

Cue Mxy coming in to complain that Apple isn't being treated fairly and that FRAND patents can't be used to collect royalties period.

I'm sure he will show up soon doing just that unless he's been given a vacation via the moderators.=P

Didn't you know that FRAND stands for Free is Reasonable if Apple Needs it for Devices?

Good, one less lawsuit to hear about.

What I think about Apple's legal strategies? I would say, but there might be minors reading this article...... : )

Glad that Apple is not allowed to just have its way in the court rooms. Fight by innovating, not ligating...

Can't try the case in any other state, SCORE! All Apple needed was a tiny bit of humility, instead they brought tons of arrogance and are now seeing people are fed up with it. You can't fight you way to the top, you'll get pummelled by all the opposition you stepped on along the way.

Judge Koh should start hanging out with Judge Crabb. This was a good call on Judge Crabb part. I believe a lot of the hate for Apple would stop, if they would quick all this court bull.

That's just it. Most of my disdain for Apple comes from their arrogant behavior and their desire to litigate other companies into submission. I want Apple to be competitive and offer great products, but through innovation and kick a$$ products, not through lawyers and courts. I prefer PC's and Android, but choices are good, and what works for me may not be the preference of another.

Life would be really really boring if we all liked the same stuff, ya know?

I'm an Android guy, but I rather have a Mac than a PC. Just my opinion though. :

Apple really could take a benefit from Google's approach.

In July, Google unveiled it's Google Now system, with a competitor to Siri. Late last year they unveiled Chrome, a browser for phones that blew most of the browser competition out of the water. And Google+, a systm that could let 10 phones video chat with each other at the same time.

All of this could have been android exclusive. Some would argue that it should have. But Google gave it all to the iPhone anyway. olive branch after olive branch, all in the name of letting people use their products how they liked.

Whatever your thoughts on Google might be, you have to respect the idea of allowing people to do things the way they prefer, use the products they prefer, and trying to better fit into that lifestyle.

It's always gratifying to see blind arrogance slapped down. Apple's attitude is disgusting. " the court has the authority to rule in our favor, but we have the right to just ignore it if they rule against us."

Translation: We are above the law.

Gratifying indeed.

At lease we have a good Judge that make sence one of this day. Now apple starting to cry out for Judge Koh to help them again. I believe the next country will throwing Apple case again is Asia like China and Asia Pacific. I can wait to see that day. I start to see Apple to loose they credibility,brand and customers one by one.
