Well... notebook with installed Linux doesn't fit into the violent category OR maybe my imagination here was not vivid enough :)

Anyway, have a good evening or a day and stay peaceful even if what I wrote influence you in some way :)

You're kidding me, right? Stylus' have been around since the original PDAs man, which Apple didn't invent, correct me if I'm wrong. If they did invent the almighty stylus, then they need to sue a lottt more people, and that would absolutely prove beyond any argument that anyone has that Apple is just suing because they're scared of competition.

Um. Why is Apple suing over these devices that support styluses? Apple hates styluses. Furthermore, Jelly Bean is specifically designed in some ways to NOT infringe on Apple patents such as pinch to zoom.

Seriously Jelly Bean? When you fail to innovate, and develop new ideas, you instead litigate. Big Fruity is wasting money. The one suit they did win will be thrown out either by Judge Koh or in the 9th Circuit for juror misconduct.

They, Big Fruity have lost almost every major case outside of America. Its because our justice system caters to the rich and can afford the most.

Big Fruity complaining about a device that can use a stylus, yet NONE, NONE not 1, not a single one of their devices use a stylus. You can buy a stylus to use to tap the screen and thats it. The S-Pen is vastly different than ANYTHING that tree fruit came up with.

Big Fruity your market share in America is dwindling. You just came out with a 4 inch screen. Others have had 4 inch screens for at least 2-3 years. So why don't they sue you for infringement of screen size? Please just let others compete. Clearly nothing the Note line does your machines do. Half of your products contain Samsung products anyways. Including that precious Iphoney5, imaxipad and imaximinipad.

Enjoy your wasted billions Big Fruity. I'll enjoy my Note 2 soon. I suspect Big Fruity will eat itself within 10 years.

And Apple supporters wonder why so many people that prefer Android have so much disdain for Apple and it's business practices.......


I really need to go to law school and become a patent lawyer. I've already got my Business degree........

That's it. I've had enough. I said before I didn't want to see any products get banned, but I've changed my mind. Apple has gone too far. I hope Samsung gets the iPhone 5 banned just b/c they continue this patent litigation bullsh**.

Did it ever occur to anyone that all these lawsuits are just advertisements for both these companies? Everyone is talking about Apple & Samsung these days.

Yeah but only ppl like Myx talk about Apple with anything good to say. This is pissing off far more people about Apple than making people like them, from what I see and hear. Even every day customers have heard about all this crap.

You do make a point. But this is Apple we talking about. If they could...they would gather every other phone, manufacture and ship them off to Mars.

Maybe apple should also file a case of banning android because they might port siri into it...

I can use my iPhone as a paperweight, I sure hope the patent holder of paperweights does not sue the Fruit Company.

Apple's going full idiot with this... they already had one patent revoked in the patent office... had a lawsuit on FRAND costs dropped...

I think someone's getting some very bad advise, and I don't think they've fully considered the damage they've already done to their global image... and they're only making worse.

I personally don't purchase Apple products... and the rate that they're going, I'm probably not going to be buying any in the near future...

Apple is just protecting their investment,,, thats what Samsung get for acting but hurt and suing for LTE patents...

Apple has started that, so Apple does not protect anything....they just want to destroy competition through law.....not able to innovate so litigate

You'd be butthurt too if you got some dumb lawsuit judgement against you for "rectangle with rounded corners" and "slide to unlock" gallito. Samsung's LTE patents are far more legit than those dumba** patents, so, iPhone 5, GET READY FOR THE PAIN!

i would blame the patent system for approving such ridiculous patents....

No, I wouldn't say the patent system gets all the blame. I'd say 50/50. 50% for Apple for filing such dumba** patents, and 50% to the patent office for giving them the dumba** patents.

Still, Apple is taking advantage of a broken system. Kinda seems a lil like taking advantage of a really drunk chick in a bar. It just ain't right, ya know?

if i could patent a round circle and live off of it. most of us would.. one can have a crazy and dumb idea but if you get someone to buy into it.. then is not crazy anymore..

All of a sudden you blame the patent system because you've ran out of reasons why Apple is not in the wrong.

Exactly, it's don't hate the player, hate the game now, even though the player is playing dirty, it's the games fault. Apple is a dirty player, simple as that.

you think all companies play fair, you need to wake up. they all play dirty it just that Apple is a succesful company.

95. GeekMovement (unregistered)

Yeah right. Where it's true that all companies are businesses and money is indeed one of their main goal, Apple just takes all the wrong actions to make itself a saint while attacking every other companies unreasonably claiming they invented everything and everyone else is just stealing when it's not true.

It's funny how your answers have been changing from:

Apple is doing nothing wrong just protecting itself while Samsung is to blame,

to blaming the patent system,

and now finally you realize that Apple is playing dirty. It has a lot of money so what? Apple is not the only successful company and if it keeps being like this (which it probably will), it's not going to be successful for long.

I think you're the one who needs to "wake up."

Apple and their stylus patents....yea....I actually laughed out loud typing this..

Samsung and LTE patents. You tell me, which one was actually in use?
There is no way in the world anyone can defend this...madness.

i thin what apple also trying to do is to push Samsung's sales down by suing them, so Samsung will lower the prices to sell as many as they can before getting banned, then the sales wont be as expected because the prices are lower.. so apple is win win situation, if not banned then lower sales to remain No.1
