I really wish Apple would stop all this BS and grow up. Suing the hell out of your competition isn't the way to win over customers. Making a better product than your competition is the way to go. Seriously Apple is just going after the best Android has to offer because the best they have to offer doesn't even come close.

I sure hope HTC has some recourse in this. I know a fair amount of folk who wanted to upgrade to it, but are now waiting for the Galaxy S3. Lost sales, frustrated customers, and losing the small spot they had as the (arguably) nicest Android phone before the GS3.

So I read up on the original, original source (Foss) and it seems that basically Apple is still whining that HTC is infringing on the SAME PATENT that Customs and the ITC already decided that they DIDN'T infringe on.

I mean, can Apple really be this goddamn stupid? It's basically the equivalent of

"these new phones infringe on my patents!"

"Hmm, we've looked at them, and no they don't."

"Yes they do, look again NOW, before they sell too many of them! Waaaah!"

its always an amazing coincidence that apple targets the biggest sellers, regardless of how they look or act. You never hear them going after miui themed devices in china, which is a direct rip off of apple's look.

Not just Samsung, here's another example of apple trying to stop competition. Afraid of them overtaking their dinky iphone.

In a few years time, when apple has no more idea on innovating their products and when their "fanboys" already get tired and bored of them. Let's see what other manufacturers like: samsung, htc, nokia and motorola(when the time comes that they are leading in the competition and apple is already at the bottom like rim) will do to sue apple if they infringe of any of their patents(since they no longer have any ideas, they'll just copy)

In a few years when Apple has no new ideas or innovations? A few years from 2007. That train has already left the station.

its already happening. their lack of innovation and rotten moves are part of the reason most analysts think they will slide into 3rd place behind windows phone.

Maybe all of the iSheeps finally realize that the company that they follow is corrupt as hell.

after all the islaave deaths, factory explosions, horrid worker conditions, tiny paychecks, price fixing schemes for books and music, riping off customers and making them pay for a warantee that is legislated to have to come with the device, kicking competitive programs out of the market place, and obsurd amount of frivilous lawsuits that they have a huuuge track record of losing but do it to bully other companies into compliance.... i doubt this will be enough to sway them to how evil the corp really is.

If you are not stealing(infringing) intellectual property, why worry? This is NOT like stealing crack apps or downloading illegal music.

Here is why - Apple tries to get preliminary bans, before any infringement can be established. They want the phone held up before they get a judgement.

Ask HTC how that turns out. The hold up on the One X and Evo LTE resulted in lots of cancellations, and by the time they got it cleared up (and were found to NOT be infringing), Samsung was releasing the Galaxy S3. HTC lost a ton of sales due to Apple's underhanded tactics, and they were already in trouble before. This is really going to hurt them.

Apple just throws out random crap to the high ends of android phones. Greedy bastards x_x. They know they can't take any other competitor out there so they try to make themselves look good, but it's not working :D

I'm sure Apple didn't give a damn if data tapping was on HTC's phones or not. They wanted to hinder HTC One X and EVO sales the best way they new how.

Think about that though. Apple used the U.S. Government to stop HTC from selling two of their best smartphones in America for a extended period of time just because, then felt like it. Thats scary.
