Why can't Apple do this? I mean, not with the slide to unlock patent, because that's stupid, but with actual legitimate patent infringments (if they have any)? Instead of going, "Hey! That's sorta kinda similar to my patent if you look at it a certan way! SUE EVERYTHING" Just be like, "Hey, that thing you're doing with your product, it's kind of similar to mine. I don't want to take you to court, let's just see if we can come to an agreement without any legal action." Except, using bigger, more sophisticated words. I mean really, Apple took Samsung to court because they made a phone that had a rectangle shape and a home button.

This is the way business should be done, not via litigation. Both parties should meet and if they are using Nokia patents, pay up and move on like professional adults.
Seriously, with all the tons of patents, how can you make anything electronic without using someone else's technology/ideas.

This is how you do business. No one is disputing the fact that if you have a patent you should get paid when other people use your tech. Apple is going about this the wrong way :/

This is they way it should be done. And if Goog/Asus is really stepping on the patent, then they should work out a deal.
Apple is just run by child minded assholes that think they should be the only person in the market.. because the only way apple can compete is through legislation. They dont have innovation anymore. Their one "big" piece of "innovation" in the last few OS updates has been Siri which was BOUGHT and relabeled an Apple product. Everything else they do is "keeping up with android by stealing its features".
Taco, you like to say without Apple there would be no Android. Which in itself isnt true. But after looking at the last 3 Apple updates, I can safely say that without Android, Apple would still be on iOS3... as it wouldnt know what features to implement.
