Apple calls out HTC's entire One series in its third ITC complaint

0. phoneArena posted on 06 Jun 2012, 11:15

Well folks, the saga continues as Apple quietly rolled out a third complaint to the ITC on June 4th! At heart, this new filing is still calling out HTC’s violation of patents regarding “data tapping.” Very recently, HTC began selling the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE after they mentioned...

I think this situation perfectly illuminates the Apple corporate stance that "might equals right."

Taco do me a favor, pull down your notification bar, use your voice commands (aka siri), sync with iCloud, access your camera directly from the lock screen and think again WHO'S THE THIEF HERE!

Siri is nothing like android voice commands. Apple has had cloud services since 2001. I'm not familiar with android's lock screen camera options.

I'll give you notifications. Apple is guilty there, but that's one feature while androids OS is an iOS copy down to the core.

If I could give you half a thumbs up I would, taco, because the last paragraph was accurate.
As for cloud services, I dunno what apple had ten years ago, but the way they advertise icloud it's something new and exciting.
While android's VC isn't as advanced as Siri, VC tech had been in development by multiple companies for decades; siri was originally Nuance's app which apple bought and modified, and Nuance's version itself was a product of decades of DARPA research, so it isn't truly an apple product.
The lock screen stuff is straight from other OSes, namely Android, so apple is guilty there, too

It's a fact you'll have to deal with.

It's a fact that was proven wrong to you over and over. a taco talking about facts, where does the taco hold a brain to even talk about facts. stick to carne asada, or whatever flavor you're in, carne asada preferably so you'll be somewhat likeable to me.

Maybe that's the problem... too much filler, and not enough real meat in the "beef"... sometimes I wonder if taco's mind has just a bit too much "pink slime" gumming up the works...

Yes, taco... you've made it quite clear that, in your opinion, it is our "fact" "to deal with"...

This is like two neighbors sitting in their lawn chairs in their adjacent back yards... taco is the neighbor who shovels up his dog's poo, fills paper bags full of this ever-more-abundant dog poop, lights them on fire, and yells to the other side "This is for YOU to deal with!" as he lobs the things, one by one, into the adjacent back yard... very neighborly, indeed...

Apple is going to win this. There is little doubt at this point. As many people with power believe, "he who has the gold makes the rules!" People like me no longer get as much of a say in this ever-less-free "free market", and right now Apple 'has the gold.' Apple has the money to make sure that this charge will eventually stick, no matter how rediculous, and no matter who has to be rewarded (bribed) to get it done. And so, with this system in place, Apple will be feeding the gold into taco's 'dog' all the more as time passes... and out will come the poop for taco's flaming-poop-bag-slinging entertainment at everyone else's expense...

And in taco's case, "he who has the dog poop lobs the flaming bags..."

Had a feeling you would be showing up. You've had some smart things to say recently, but it doesn't look like today will be your day.

Apple may have the patents, but by doing this, they are just proving that they are overzealous nitwits who can't stand to see any other phone succeed for whatever reason. It's one stupid little patent, and they're going all apes*** about it. Most of their technology wasn't even theirs to begin with, so I don't see what makes them so high-and-mighty.

I believe "avatar" is the word you are looking for. Did auto-correct mess that one up for you?

As for the avatar, yes. It sums up my feelings, much like yours does. Mine, however, seems a little more popular around here based on the comments I am seeing today.

Yes there is a small group of very loud android fanatics on this website. It's mostly employees of cell phone companies that worked for someone other than AT&T and were taught to hate the iPhone.

The brain washing has stuck.

Yes, taco... and I'm sure you and your Apple extremist... ahem... I mean, friends, are celebrating the great "fairness" of the system in this potential judgment as you watch the original "1984-esque" Apple commercial from back in the day over and over again, wear "Che" T-shirts, and otherwise fantisize that you are the new "freedom fighters" of our digital day and age... and that you are all so unique and creative because you all share the same phone in common... but certainly with slightly different app selections and lock-screen wallpapers... and you will all be standing in line together, joyously and with much rejoicing, for hours and hours in front of the local Apple store when the iPhone 5 gets released. Sounds very yummy.

Man, just screw off. I'm tired of your bulls**t. I really am.

When HTC sets out to specifically design a phone so that it doesn't infringe on Apple's patents, and Apple still files a complaint (because the phone series is SELLING) you don't see anything wrong with it?

Just...seriously, go to hell. I'm done.

Clearly they're still infringing. I'd suggest HTC switch to windows phones which is an original product.

What the hell are they infringing on, dumbass?

You don't even f**king know.

Because clearly, to you, anything else that dares employ rows of icons HAS to be infringing on Apple's magical patents.

Just shut up. Shut the f**k up. I am so, so tired of your bulls**t.

i just laughed to myself about the patent apple talks about icons arranged on a screen.

when i first installed windows 95, and i arranged all my shortcuts on the screen to be neat and tidy.

Then if i can find my screenshot i had back in 1995.
Which i printed out on my dot-matrix printer and then distributed to my friends.
Then is that enough to show that it wasnt original when apple did it?
these patents are crazy, why doesnt a Hammer company sue another hammer company for putting a handle on a hammerhead which facilitates the user wrapping their palm and hand around it in a fashion that resembles making a fist. then being able to swing said hammer at a nail head. (which then in turns must be protected by the same idea of patent law that the hammer is, since the nail is designed in such a fashion so that my free hand and fingers are able to nimbly hold it while aforementioned hammer strikes it.

It is truly rediculous, and everyone does this stupidity, but Apple gets the global pass because of the common assumption, especially within the ranks and fans of Apple, that "only Apple is capable of innovating!" What we end up with is anyone else who tries to innovate gets their ideas "borrowed" by Apple, who claims it to be their own innovation (because, clearly, only Apple can innovate these days), and then slams the actual inventor for infringment. Any time new technology is developed by some other company, I cannot begin to tell you how many times I hear someone say "They stole that from Apple!"

How is Windows Phone an original product when most true Apple enthusiast folks have long remembered that Microsoft "borrowed" the idea of the GUI from Apple's Lisa and MacIntosh computers? If everything Apple claimed was true, or got litigated in their favor, then our entire digital world ought to be owned solely by Apple already. Instead, Apple picks winners and losers, and freely uses other corporations' inventions in their own designs, then claiming themselves to be the "innovator" of such technology. Either a) Apple should boldly claim ownership of the whole dang shootin' match, or b) leave others alone to innovate for themselves. Either way, Apple should stop their sadistic and biased practice of picking who not to litigate against (who gets a total pass, like Sony and Microsoft) and who to litigate against (who gets nailed with 'the book', like Samsung and HTC and, vicariously, Google). Any continuation of the status-quo by Apple is nothing short of complete hipocrisy!

@taco hi, I'd like to introduce you to HD7, Titan, and Titan II. They're Windows Phones made by HTC! Apple still thinks they're somehow infringing.
