There's no other explanation for your behavior really. Just in this article you said customers in Apple stores were "disgusting". Why would you have such hatred for an electronic product that you consider people that buy Apple products disgusting?

How many times do I have to explain that it's not the product itself I have a problem with? It's with APPLE AS A COMPANY. Jesus H. f**king Christ.

Okay why would you have such hatred for a company that you consider people who buy their product disgusting?


It's irrational and jealousy leads to irrational behavior which I see from you all the time. It's obvious you have serious Apple envy.

Or maybe I just have a seriously hard time seeing a morally objectionable company make money because to me it's a form of injustice. And standing up to injustice is something I do a lot. I'm a man of principle, something a compulsive liar and intellectually dishonest jerk like you wouldn't understand.

Lol, well said. It's amazing that the Phandroids will do to justify the poor execution of Android.

Android Is my cup of tea and if apple can't deal with that faction, I will continue to boycott there products. I love their products but hate the company. Even though HTC did violate two messily patents, the boundaries are splattered all over the place so its all hell if a company makes a mistake or in HTC's case two. I don't no much about this legal stuff but I hope everything goes into HTC's favor because they make my favorite handsets.

Maybe HTC will actually buck down and release a device worth owning. But then again you can't expect much from Android.

Miz you speak the truth. It would be nice if android would actually develop and innovate instead of riding Apple's coat tails

Honeycomb came out after the iPad as a way to combat iOS having a functional tablet OS. What exactly was the innovation in honeycomb?

Lol, well said taco. Android has never been innovative. It's been pirating off everyone else's ideas since day one. Google's only original thing is their search engine as they desperately try and copy Facebook, to adherent failure.

They couldn't be original if it came and struck them with lightning.

Because instead of just stretching Android out to a bigger screen, Google created an entirely new version of its OS designed specifically with tablets in mind?

Miz, my friend, you have already posted a list of cons on the Motorola Droid 3 review. One of them was a slam on Verizon's network. So, you posted on a Motorola article for a device you will not use on a carrier you do not use, a HTC article for a company you say you hate, and I am still waiting on that creative criticism on any comment you write. But, I find it useful to know where the more negative people stand. Post on, Google Killer, post on and win the world for level headed hatred ....

What's your point? I have every right to comment on whatever f**king article I choose. Yeah, I slam Verizon's network and poor business practices, yeah I think Motorola phones suck, and yeah I think HTC is the worst manufacturer ever especially for copying Apple. What is your point?

htc is not copying apple at all apple needs to Just compete and stfu maybe if apple puts out something besides the iphone they wouldnt have to worry about suing everyone come on now apple sees HTC as a big threat and they know they cant compete u see no major issues in htc phones and if there are any they fix them with software updates as where as apple is constantly having issues take the release of the iphone 5 that still not has been released yet their having issues because their processors are overloading on the phone to sum this up apple sucks as badly as their phones catching on fire u never heared about that with htc I love Htc and will not stand for these weak accusations against the best manufactuer in the technology world

I think this is really upsetting and rediculous apple is Just Jealous of HTC because of popularity and their ability to have a variety of phones to select from where as apple only has the iphone to stand on apple is Just affraid of competition and on top of that they are money hungry and dont care about their costumers and didnt stop to think that if the worst case sonario happens they will not be able to release the us version of the optomous 3d aka thrill 4g s0 their screwing themselves up in the end. I have been a loyal customer of htc and proud android user since the G1 and from there I have had a HTC phone I stand behind HTC all they way 1000% team HTC Team android we will ride out this storm and beat apples Injustice acusations by all means keep ya head up

The bottom line is, the US patent system atm is totally rubbish. That needs sorting out and until it does companies will be forever using these often outrageous patents to suppress innovation. If not Apple, its Nokia or Microsoft or any of the other tech companies.

A company has a right to protect their own intellectual property but it becomes a problem when the patent is stupid. Not sure if this is the case in this particular incident as I'm not really sure what the specific patents are.

"The first patent is about a “system and method for performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data,” while the second is for “real-time signal processing system for serially transmitted data.” "

Not really sure what exactly either of the above 2 patents are and how specific they are. LG is a pretty young company which dont have as a big a patent portfolio as some of the others. By acquiring the company they are currently in talks with they might be able to get out of this mess relatively unscathed. Other heavyweights/older companies who have adopted android could find it easier to deal with since they have their own huge patent portfolio if they dig deep enough might be able to find a similar pointless patent awarded to them which Apple are infringing on to make a deal.
