Apple is sued by Caltech over the use of four Wi-Fi patents

Just the other day, we told you that Apple's legal team had its hands full with portfolio holding company VirnetX. The latter had won a jury award of $625 million against Apple, and was seeking an additional $190 million. It also asked the judge to force Apple to shut down its iMessages and FaceTime features. Now, Apple's attorney's are being called on again to defend the company in another patent infringement case...

Google is not innocent despite what you want to believe.

Concerning the Oracle debacle, they are. It's been decided by the courts. Just accept it.

Again, Google isn't innocent. It's not just about the Oracle case.

Apple isn't "innocent" either. And again, this article has nothing to do with Google, it's about Apple using IP without permission or license to. Stop deflecting.

Just like Apple had nothing to do with the recent blackberry article you commented in? And you call me a hypocrite?

Not a hypocrite, THE hypocrite. Running your mouth off, pissing everyone off, then you get butthurt when we do the same to you. You're like a the stupid fat kid in school that picked a fight and couldn't handle the consequences of his actions.

Sounds like you're the little kid who is trying so hard to be cool but he just can't reach that level.

Hell yeah! I'm as cool as they come. Ha ha ha.... Na, I'm a big nerd... and you're a big hypocritical puss, you need to deal with it and move along.

I'm pretty sure you're a BIG nerd. The keyboard warrior and the multiple chins are a dead giveaway.

Well, the wife appreciates that I'm a BIG nerd, "wink, wink".

lol, like you can talk to women. You'd have to leave your mom's basement for that to ever happen. Nope, it's just you, pictures of sheep and a tube sock.

I credited Apple for bypassing carriers with their updates, and yes, I also mentioned that I wish other OEM's did the same, minus the bugs. At what point did I not tell the truth? And what I said had much more relevance to the conversation in that BlackBerry article than you bringing up Google and Samsung as a way of deflecting from Apple being shown in a light you don't approve of.

116. Mxyzptlk unregistered

And in the same article, you're doing the exact same thing you're accusing me of doing, deflecting from blackberry being shown in a light you disapprove.

Dude.... I think I've asked you close to 100 times now to prove you're not a hypocrite by posting a link to an article where you had posted a comment unprompted by anyone else that was was critical of Apple and you never do and always change the subject. You are the undisputed king of all hypocrisy and deflecting. Quite trying to point fingers at other people when there's no contest.

No I'm not. But in that very same article, YOU are deflecting because you posted false information and I corrected you on it. You're seething with anger over it. So much so, that your avatar has turned red.

157. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You're doing the attacking and crying, and I'm the one seething with anger? You're getting sick from all of the crying and the bs fumes coming from your mouth that it's turning your avatar green. Or it could just be you matching the same color as a turd.

Stop trying to project your BS onto me. You're the one that's gone on a rampage against several commenters here because they mentioned Apple in a way that makes you bumburned, and now you've gone and changed your avatar to because I was using your old one against you. That's the second time I've gotten you to change your avatar, which looks like you've just smelled the BS coming off your upper lip. Lmao! I'm taking bets to see how long it will take you to change that avatar now that I've made fun of it. Lmao!

196. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Lol, typical Meanest backtracking. Still going on about my avatar? I guess you want your troll tokens for the day. Don't flatter yourself.

Damn man, you're very insecure, we pick on you and you go changing your avatar. It's like clockwork.

I'm "backtracking" because I posted the truth about your rampage through this article? Lmao! Typical Mxy deflection. And I'm the winner, winner, chicken dinner! You changed your avatar in record time! Now you look the part of a creep as well as sounding like one! Lmao! I'm taking more bets, folks! How soon do you think Mxy will change his avatar this time? Lmao!

Hey, remember when Apple had a contract with that company to make them sapphire glass for the iPhones then they backed out and never paid them the agreed upon amount causing them to go bankrupt? Do you remember that? I bet you do because it was all over tech sites when it happened. But you don't care because it was Apple that screwed over another company, not Google.

55. engineer-1701d unregistered

dont forget all the family's that lost there jobs and then apple turned around bought the ovens to do the same thing, apple is the anti-tech company, like the new ipad stand thats surface pros and the pencil and the new mac book with microsoft surface pro laptop hinge. yeah apple steals everything and things with deep pockets they dont have to worry because they have more lawyer money

You mean like when Google bought Motorola, took what they needed, and sold the empty husk to Lenovo who then proceeded to fire all of the Moto X designers.

No sh-, maybe you should read my comment next time. Yeah, they saved them but they SOLD them after nabbing a few patents. Motorola is a shell of their former self.

And you allegedly have the Moto X Pure and says it's great.... so.... I guess they learned something while at Google.

118. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Yes, it is a great phone. Unfortunately it's a great phone that I have a feeling will be given the shaft if the lack of security updates is of indication.
