Apple seeks to add Google Now and Samsung Galaxy S4 to 2014 patent trial

Earlier this month, we told you how both Samsung and Apple are being limited by Judge Lucy Koh in advance of their next patent trial set to start in March 2014; Koh wants both companies to limit the number of devices in each side's infringement claim, to no more than 22. While Apple had originally left out the Samsung Galaxy S4, it did put Samsung on notice that it would probably be adding the latest Android flagship to its list...

Right? I am SOOOOO sick of the Coke/Pepsi, Ford/Chevy, Sports team patent wars and nonstop litigation with them. Oh wait that doesn't happen. What a stupid attempt at a point. Do you not understand the difference between competitive rivalry and frivolous lawsuits meant to create a monopoly? Of course you don't.

Are you simple or just cursed with poor reading comprehension? Name a suit in the last 5 years any of those companies have brought against each other without using Google. Now how many lawsuits have apple brought against their competitors in just the last 5 MONTHS. It's almost as if you can't read at all. Einstein.

Those companies have been going at each other for almost a century. The tech industry is new and going through the same things all of the industrial companies went through before them. Just because you are 15 and have no concept of time prior to the creation of Google and the acquisition of YouTube by Google, those prior years in history do not cease to exist.

Point is those companies have found a way to coexist and realize competition is good for everyone so his "point" was stupid and irrelevant. Apple simply wants the competition GONE. AGAIN, name recent suits any of those companies have brought against each other in the last five years off the top of your head. Now how many suits has apple brought against, pretty much everyone in the last 5 MONTHS? You and dark should buddy up and go halvsies on a reading tutor.

Apparently Apple doesn't have the balls to sue Google over Google Now....

No they don't, they're skeered of Google it's self so they go after their biggest OEM instead. They already know they can't go against Google or they would have already.

What's pathetic about Apple is that Samsung made 22% of their parts on the Iphone 4 and 4S so basically, Apple's been suing themselves!! Samsung is like the Asst. Coach who leaves a team and goes and starts winning championships while the head coach (Apple) can't compete but thinks the old Asst. Coach owes them for their new wins!! Give it up Apple, actually spend court money on making a relevant device and improving their mediocre operating system instead of suing everyone and maybe none of us would be having this conversation right now! There's a reason why Apple's stock prices have dropped over 40% in the past 9 months! I'm not signing up for a 2 year contract for an inferior phone that doesn't allow me to do anything besides talking and texting! At least with android, I get to use my phone the way "I" want to and not the way Apple forces me to!

You know, the lawyers really are the only "winners" in this non stop BS.

Really? Google Now? A Google service that is on all Android devices running 4.1 and up? It was made and released by Google. Where's Motorola or HTC in the suit? They have phones with Google Now. Why doesn't Apple just sue Google? Steve Jobs said that he saw Android as a stolen product, stop filibustering, wasting the time of our already overwhelmed judicial system and sue Google to end it once and for all. Oh wait, it's because you know you can't win against Google.

Why doesn't apple just come out and say " since jobs passed away, we are very limited on new ideas and innovation and maybe by sueing are competion we could impede the sales of the s4 "
