Apple iPhone and Apple iPad could be banned in U.S. following ITC patent review

The ITC on Monday said it would review an April ruling that found that Apple had infringed on Motorola patent relating to Wi-Fi; if so inclined, the Judge could put a ban on the import into the U.S. of Apple's devices that include the offending technology...

Burning question: how many patents does Apple has FRAND? That is a real serious question I ask.

And that is the real question some folks should ask.

Why do Majority of People Love Apple Products? Because it's very easy to use, super simple, boring for those advanced tech people. People do not buy Android devices because they think they're hard to use, and hype itself. An Android device is not hard to use *well unless if you have a low IQ on gadgets, yeah maybe* Apple is very simple and easy to use, thus making it the "all age" product, ugh...my goodness even my grandmother can use one, that's how freaking easy it is. Android is for the advance users who know how to tweak+customize their phone like a boss.

And the sad part is, Nokia is filing for support of apple, when they themselves sued them over wireless standard patents and were seeking product bans.

Nokia went from a cool company to being run by a MS lapdog.

The moment of truth has come: can the ITC think for itself, or is it just Apple's lapdog?

Oh please oh please oh please oh please. That would be GLORIOUS! Apple gets its just desserts, ignorant shoppers learn more truths about apple ( not made in the U.S., blatant theft), the poor workers at foxconn might get a break of sorts, and some of the OEMs who have been banned get some satisfaction

Obviously just like we don't want Apple banning Android, the same goes for Apple. These devices push each other and ALL need to exist, even windows phones lol. Sure, Apple has been pathetic in their attempts at thermonuclear war agaisnt android for no effin reason but that man is dead and Cook seems a lot more reasonable... live and let live.. lol when I am the voice of reason when it comes to Apple/Android debate!

Those two products can burn in hell. Apple gets whatever happens to them in the future. They wanted thermonuclear war, well they just got it.

+1 for Android so far.

Yep, you all know it. Apple can buy their way into anything they want... +1 to gallito for the courage to admit that he knows it, too.
