Google didn't "believe 'rounded corners' were patentable"

0. phoneArena 11 Sep 2012, 18:58 posted on

Google may have come out and said that Apple's victory against Samsung won't have an effect on the Android ecosystem as a whole, but it seems that the company has still learned a lesson from the ordeal. In fact, Google's Vice President for Corporate Development David Lawee...

Why on earth would any one want to patent rounded corners phone?
An Edge2Edge phone looks much concept and contempt, stylish, and sexy; it's like SONY. high-end Plasma TVs they don't have rounded corners. Recall the Nokia N74 concept! Italian and German concept iPhone, there all Edge2Edge, with rear flat back....!

Give them enough iCash and they'll patent the letter 'E' for you. Disgusting broken system being taken advantage of by a disgusting company.

Absolutely agree, you just don't simply file the application for rounded corners and get the patent. You have to pay over the top, much over the top to get it.

I think the system is not only broken, it's corrupted.

I'm afraid I have to agree what Google say...
Whether it is rectangular or not it shouldn't be patented...

No, you're right, these comment sections go way better when we have five guys hitting on Wendy over a profile picture that's not even of her.

Quite possibly. Or she could be a woman.

Either way it's a perfect example of why women hate using internet forums and identifying themselves as such.

who said wendy was a girl??? my assumption is that it's a sad internet troll like some crunchy spanish sounding jerk that we all know... just disguised with a feminine name and a chick's picture most of the time. Amazing how when she got called on using a Vietnamese chick's picture "she" changed it to an apple icon.

Sounds like Google waited too long to do legal research, which I can't entirely blame them for. Rounded corners should not be patentable. On a larger scale, their naivete over the need to patent the s**t out of everything they do so that they don't get their asses sued off is quite endearing.

Ever heard of WINDOWS suing LINDOWS because LINDOWS sounded too much like WINDOWS?

the difference is monster is an actual word. lindows is not. lindows is MEANT to sound like windows.
