Apple patent allows iOS devices to share content by pouring it out

0. phoneArena 08 Jul 2011, 09:58 posted on

According to Patently Apple, the tech giant is working on a feature that would allow content to be shared among all iOS powered devices; using gestures, files, web pages, contacts etc. would be wirelessly sent from, say, your Apple iPhone to your iPad using a motion similar to "pouring" a glass of water...

So Apple are investing in patents that "pour", rather than revamping iOS which is as boring as fcuk after 4 years....

ROFLMAO...

Boring? Yet it's still selling millions and millons. Also, how can you say that iOS is boring when you don't have it :)

Ummm...not exactly an Apple fan here, but I think this IS what you would consider investing in making an OS less boring...

Bump required contact of the two devices. Or has the meaning of the word "bump" been changed recently?

Probably why he said "almost" unless the meaning of that word has also changed recently?

Very similar to bump haha. I think they Apple should focus on perfecting the notification bar first before adding another Android feature to an Apple device...ZzZzZz

Bump was actually a IOS app first.

Seriously, you guys need to realize that no matter how open Android is, it will always be platform of second choice to developers. This is why Android fans are super annoying. Will talk just to talk. Why did Hallucinator get a -1?

Markman2012, or you just don't have any good arguments to come up with. You people can be such dumb@sses it's not even funny. If you had half the business brain that Apple has you might be able to understand why they do what they do. You say the company is greedy when you would jump at the first opportunity to make some sort of money. You think Google respects privacy when it comes to monopolizing the search engine industry? Come on....
