Apple wins preliminary injunction on Samsung GALAXY Nexus, can aim for Samsung Galaxy S III next
0. phoneArena 29 Jun 2012, 18:45 posted on
Judge Lucky Koh has awarded Apple a preliminary injunction against the Samsung GALAXY Nexus; Apple will have to post a $96 million bond and Samsung will most likely ask for a stay on the order which revolves around four patents Samsung allegedly infringed upon with the handset...

Not once when using my Nexus have I've said "Gee...this is like an iPhone". Its why I love my phone so much. I've always told myself that I would be open minded if an Apple product would ever fit my needs, but these Apple lawsuits have become ridiculous. I officially have become the type of person I told myself i would never be......close minded. Screw you Apple.

what the hell is happening with judge lucy koh? why is she issuing injunctions against samsung left and right? is she under apple`s payroll?

I know, she was doing so well before, and now with this and the Tab 10.1, starting to lose confidence in her. I know judges have to be unbiased, but this sort of junk is baloney. She should do what that other judge did and tell apple to STFU.

Why is Samsung getting Sued for the Nexus... Isnt this pure google software that Samsung just Manufactured, so shouldnt they be suing google. Or maybe apple is scared to go up against Google head on.

This is complete crap. Apple is so scared of Samsung taking over its ridiculous. I was tempted in buying the new MacBook Pro but with this (injunction) I'm boycotting them permanently. I hope Samsung stops doing any kind of business with Apple.
You lost me apple -1

Well...sad news...but here are is my take on this - All patents Slide-to-unlock, data-tapping and auto-correct...why these are not covered in FRAND...when Apple save their ass from 3g patents of Moto and Samsung by arguing to consider them as frand...what the are these bulls**t patents? Same judge lucy...denied injunction initially...wtf has changed from then?
"Accordingly, Apple has shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its '647 [data tapping] Patent claim."
"Accordingly, Apple has met its burden of establishing that the '721 [slide-to-unlock] Patent is likely infringed by the Galaxy Nexus, and that the '721 Patent will likely withstand a validity challenge at trial."
"Accordingly, Apple has shown that it is likely to succeed on the merits at trial in its claims that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus infringes claims 18, 19, and 27 of the '172 [autocorrect] Patent."

T H AN K Y O U!!!
I asked a serious question the other day about Apple and what patents they have as FRAND...and got lots of red thumbs...I must have hit a nerve...lol.
Agree 100% about Apple and their FRAND patents...or lack of them.

if they got an injunction on the G-Nex for some odd Siri patent.. then technically they just went after google, not samsung.. even though its a samsung phone. Its also a NEXUS which is a stock google device. If they can get the nexus banned and stick, they have the android ecosystem in their grasp.
And how the frick does Apple get anything off a Siri patent when GVA was released YEARS before it?
Now it makes sense. they bought Nuance for their patents.. just a new way to troll and kill competition.

This is probably the first time the judges had to face a kid like Apple who wouldn't go away time after time and continued to annoy the adults with all their complaints over and over again just because they can, then finally, the adults got so tired of his whining that they awarded him the prize. Kind of like how a child cries to his mom to buy him a new toy.
94. dmn666 (Posts: 194; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
Yeah....Problem is the patent was filed in 2004. Looks like Apple has the edge this time.

now i know why these judges are so damn blinded..
try to read that article, and tell me if you are not dizzy.. and take also into account that apple, being a patent troll, submits a lot of these to the court.. I'm sure judge Lucky Koh (it should be Lucy) goes boink boink..
f**king half bitten fruit..

But I bet that wont get in the way of iFans and their wild theories...
Maybe Apple filed something before 2004? Just trying to understand the mind of Apple's legal team.
95. gallitoking (Posts: 4680; Member since: 17 May 2011)
or maybe I could be wrong.. but Google voice is not in the same league as Siri.. and thats why a judge whom is not a fandroid saw it and rule in favor of Apple.. google voice is like DVD it work and everyone was crazy over it.. but Siri is like Blue Ray.. far better technology...
115. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
dont worry, your wrong as usual.
and since Google Voice was out YEARS before Apple even bought Nuance, I'd like to know how they have a case..
117. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Well fandroid they obviously have a case as a court of law (not Internet trolls) has sided with Apple.
The copying is blatantly obvious and Samsung/android need to stop.
123. Sniggly (Posts: 6695; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Yeah, but you obviously don't give a s**t when Apple copies the HELL out of other OSes. That s**t needs to stop too.
I can't believe the panties that you wad up over minutia, but when Apple steals s**t that other companies spent a hell of a lot more effort on coming up with, you don't GIVE A s**t.
"Oh my god! Android has slide to unlock too! We must sue them into the ground!"

If Google has a problem we'll see them in court
150. Non_Sequitur (Posts: 1111; Member since: 16 Mar 2012)
They're not going to sue because they're not f**king assholes or whiny little children.
I hope they do now though, because I like the Nexus.

You're a little kid and ont understand how business works. Google is not a good guy. Every corporation tries to make money and that's it. Apple is just better at it than most.

where are you getting this "We" business from? You're not a part of the Apple legal team.
Love how you Apple people stick together.
I'm WP all the way and even I have to admit.. this is ridiculous. Apple needs to stop ****ing around, make a device that's actually not a copout and bring it to Samsung.
Anyone with eyes can see how stupid this is. The fact that you're defending Apple here shows just how ridiculously blind you are.

It doesnt matter if its on the same leage or not....prior use should matter. No matter how bad or less functional.
Voice was always part of Search on Android. There was a lil mic next to the Search box when you clicked on the app or widget.

FCKING C%APPLE still won't leave Samsung alone. Don't these idiots knows that if they ban GS IIi and with all those consumers who pre order will hurt part of the industry not to mention making us even madder. and screw phone arena for banning words on this site
90. rockstarlive (Posts: 307; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
I think the only thing or way to stop Apple is.......One big carrier to stop offering any Apple device. That's the only way. Offering different O/S is cool, but maybe, let's say Verizon wants to make a 100% commitment to android or Windows.

They have contracts and common sense in place so it won't happen
220. bayusuputra (Posts: 941; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
no, they only have contract that's stopping them from doing so.. their common sense is saying that they should go with android/WP..
273. jroc74 (Posts: 4720; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
How about Android AND Windows....cuz WP is the only other thing I would use after Android. Still get that hardware choice with WP.

lol, Does Apple think winning these lawsuits are doing them any favors? Banning a product just makes people want them more. They're not winning any new fans, the only ones they can keep are ones who are too stupid to use anything else *cough*Taco,Gallito*cough*.
P.S I don't really care anyway, I'm not in the US, I already have my SGS3.

after the banning of the galaxy tab in Autralia.. sales didnt took after the ban was lifted.. and watch how the new iphone will break sales records, and here in the U.S Apple still rules...

All delaying the EVO LTE did was piss off all the people who were looking at getting it, making them want Apple even less. Considering we've been selling many of them, that's a lot of people to piss off.

Wrong as usual no one cares about the Evo. Hopefully the S III gets a permanent US ban. I hate copycats.

- Sigh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -
Yes, Apple is rediculous with all the lawsuits. But at the same time, Samsung shouldn't have copied Siri. I'm sorry guys, I can't just pretentious that S-Voice isn't a Siri wannabe. HTC didn't do it, nor did Motorola and the Droid Razr is a major hit. So why is Samsung copying Apple and acting surprised when they get sued. Yeah, the lawsuits have to stop, but so does Samsung. And no, injunctions will not force customers to buy Apple products, nor will it make the GS3 any less of a hit. Even with that crappy S-Voice... The GS3 is still a much better device.
113. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
you dont have to pretend anything.
S-Voice is LITERALLY the new edition of the VLingo app thats been around since blackberry was popular, rebranded as S-Voice.
Samsung didnt copy squat.
If that was really the issue, then they couldnt go after the G-Nexus as the nexus uses stock google voice commands, not S-Voice, which we all know have been out for quite a while.
116. Whateverman (Posts: 3187; Member since: 17 May 2009)
Yeah, I dont get why they are going after the Galaxy Nexus. That's just the same old "We hate Samsung" BS. But S-Voice sill looks like a copy. I used Vlingo on my Blackberry years ago, it's an okay app. But S-Voice even looks Siri with the mic and the little blue or purple wave that passes over it.
I just feel that Samsung doesn't need to copy Apple.
151. Non_Sequitur (Posts: 1111; Member since: 16 Mar 2012)
No, really. It looks EXACTLY like Vlingo. Ever used Vlingo? Use it. Vlingo was around loooooong before Siri.
179. Whateverman (Posts: 3187; Member since: 17 May 2009)
Yep, I used it and liked it. And I used and liked Siri too before Apple bought it and sealed it off. Siri improved on Vlingo to a small degree much like Voice Actions. But I'm talking the design, the sounds, and the wave of light over the icon. That was all designed with the look and feel of Siri. They shove just waited for Google to come out with its improvements to voice actions. They did a much better job then both Samsung and Apple.
