karma indeed, 2.6% of Apple stock is much more than $1 billion something that SS has to pay.

HAHAHA this sentence made me chuckle. :)))
"Apple is apparently fully aware of the issue, and gobbling up LTE patents as fast as it can to fend off the upcoming legal onslaught."
:))) It's like trying to dodge a meteor hitting your city. :)))

An uneducated ifan that can barely create a coherent sentence, fresh AND new! NOW I've seen it all!
24. structureman116 (Posts: 139; Member since: 14 Sep 2010)
The correct spelling is losers, not loosers, and the only thing Apple is the best at is making a second rate product!
28. jshan (Posts: 200; Member since: 25 Dec 2011)
I told ya at once knw. That never bother , worry bout spellings. Just try to understand the reality. That the apple is the smartphone history makers... If there z no apple then u won't c a capacitive touch screens, if there is no apple no high quality games on your mobile. Most importantly if there was no apple then no android .. Hope u need to know how does google CEO took advantage to make " android "he was in apple board for 4 years and took secrets and made that stolen product.. Haha ... LoL but they still need to take some secrets to make more quality and more smoothness ... If u can think wisely think that how many product making by an apple ... iPad, iPod,Mac pc,mc note book,iPhone .... What else... And also Samsung ???? All kinda household items... But think bout the consideration of those company.. Apple on the # 1 ... Even overtaking microsoft... So what else man..sry dude .. Even now your telling bout my spells. I just try to give the well sound I thoug to give u like"looooser".. I don't know what kinda kid r ya ? LOL ...

I asked a group of patent attorneys if LTE stands for long term evolution. The laughed and said, "Son, it stands for long term employment."

It would be difficult to beat Apple in their home country even if the allegations from Samsung seems genuine.

Razor looked out over the battlefield. Apel’s forces outnumbered the Alliance’s; the white shrouded, mindless drones swarmed over the ground followed by their Shuffle tanks and a few mountainous Nightmare mobile forts. As he stared at the unfolding battle grimly, Razor brought a black-lined hand up to his ear. Speaking into the microphone embedded in his thumb, he growled “We’ve got ‘em right where we want ‘em, ladies. Come on down and join the fun.”
Captivate, the Galaxy Squad leader, called back. “You got it, Major. Girls, let’s light their asses UP!” A raucous cheer came from the other squad members as they fired the LTE boosters on their Galaxy S fighter-bombers and rocketed through the atmosphere to the planet below. Lining up for a strafing run on the Apel lines, the sleek yet powerful fighters opened up. Their auto rail guns fired bursts of 100 tungsten rounds a minute, the velocity unmatched by any other round fired from a weapon. The energy released on impact matched several tons of TNT, the rounds slamming all over the Apel forces. Entire companies were vaporized in the attack. Tanks burst open like crushed peanuts. The Nightmares were peppered and turned into ruined hulks.
Razor stood from his crouch, nodding his head in satisfaction at the devastation. His black eyes narrowed as his augmented vision added up the remaining enemy forces. A black lined bicep flexed as he reached over his head and unslinged his sniper rifle. He spoke into his hand again.
“Let’s hear it for the Galaxy Squad!” The cheers from below answered him. “Now let’s mop ‘em up, ladies and gentlemen!” With that he jumped on his hoverbike, revving the engine and dropping off the cliff to the battlefield, swiftly riding to the front of the line and leading the charge, his command of armored soldiers rushing the decimated Apel lines. The sound of their battle cries and firing weapons echoed over the rolling hills and the cliff behind them, drowning out the terrified cries of the drones as they were torn to pieces...

You have a very dark mind Sniggly... Which isn't something you would expect from someone named "Sniggly".
34. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Dark? In what way?
I'm a little bummed that people so far don't seem to like the story clip. I'd like to know what turned them off to it.

I enjoyed it, just a bit too... I don't know... Just something puts it off
36. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
That was quite brilliant actually.
Really enjoyed it :)

sammy, u act like u have all LTE patents. u will be missed and spend another billion
17. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Not likely. These are patents which have not yet been declared standards essential. Samsung and HTC could both take big bites out of Apple with this one.
38. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
they dont have "all patents", but they are one of the worlds biggest LTE patent holders.
Apple just bought a ton of small companies and patent portfolios to be like #4 or #5 in the LTE patent world.. last year they had zero.
21. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4275; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Samsung and HTC... Apple is being double teamed here.
22. dreeemer (Posts: 28; Member since: 04 Sep 2012)
Appleits gonna have to remake the logo. Add some more bite marks! Loll
26. jshan (Posts: 200; Member since: 25 Dec 2011)
This smartphone will break all records !! Actually their own records.\m/

Those in glass houses should not cast stones! If the sales of the iphone 5 is just halted for a couple of days alone....well the $$$$ impact would be immense. It's true what they say about Karma!

This just in...Apple is suing the apple industry for the term "Apple". From now on we must call that beloved fruit..."Ullaro"
31. LostInTheRed (Posts: 85; Member since: 03 May 2012)
I love how with the way the patent system works, Apple can just go out and buy up patents for a technology they haven't had/wanted until it became big. Now they can buy patents from other people, and use it against a company that actually invented some of the tech.

YES! they deserve it after all the BS that they tried to pull off last couple of months. Pay back time. This one is for the people. Burn in hell and stay there.
