Apple seeks to add Google Now and Samsung Galaxy S4 to 2014 patent trial
posted by Alan F. / May 22, 2013, 1:43 PM
Apple says that in a recent infringement analysis of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the latter infringes on five of Apple's patents. The Cupertino based tech titan had purchased models of the Samsung Galaxy S4 for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. According to Apple's analysis of the handset, the phone infringes on a pair of patents dealing with the user interfaces, another pair of patents related to Siri and search, and a data synchronization patent. Apple says that the alleged infringement of the two Siri-related patents is related to the inclusion of Google Now on the Android 4.2.2 OS installed on the phone.
Apple's motion will be heard on June 25th.

Seems as though they may have decided to joke around with the wrong company. Google will stand its and ground and take it right back to them.

Uh did you or did you not come in and make an antagonistic remark directly at me? As childish as it sounds, you started it. Therefore you don't get to whine and play the victim when I fire right back at you, Tiny. Don't start none, won't be none.

Judge Koh should keep adjourning and let Apple add more and more devices until there's a couple of hundreds under the 'infringement' title and in the end say, "iNfringement over-ruled. Case closed!".

This is the real reason there is no new iPhone launching next month! If they spent as much time developing and launching new product as they do suing other companies they'd have more new devices out than Samsung does right now!

Apple wants to sue Google for Android.....they are just beating around the bush about it. Apple cant handle competition. I seriously hope the iPhone drops into niche category so Apple can sit the hell down. Make products Apple....not more lawsuits.....

Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.

I think it's time for Google to sue Apple for Notification panel and other things!!!! Obviously we all know that Notification panel from iOS is copied from Android. Google have been staying away from this patent wars but it's Apple who declared war first. And I believe if Google involve in this patent wars , Apple has no chance to win. Shame on you Apple.

Not until apple is gone. I wish all carriers and retailers would just stop carrying their crap to send a message. It's not like anyone besides apple makes any money off an iToy anyway, only reason they are carried is iToys drive accessory attachments. Retailers should take a note from Costco: they kicked the rotten fruit out and their witreless division is doing just fine.

Don't worry Droiddoes, Apple will be joining Nokia and BB very soon, right down south, RIP! Hoping, washing, and praying! There is a universal justice the eyes of truth is always watching us, Apple! I wish all these average joes start to realize, that Apple is a very bad rooten company, and all over the world people realize, and start to stop buying any Apple products. All these big manfactures should stop supplying Apple. The world should be against them, and kick them out. Mthrf?r$ ™

LOL I wonder what's Apple's next target, oh I know, Megapixels. Apple will patent Megapixels and Apple will sue Samsung for using Megapixels then Samsung will start using Ultrapixels like HTC. And other manufacturers will follow as well. And iPhone will have the worst camera ever because it is still using Megapixels and others are using Ultrapixels. xD How's that sound?
