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...

I read the title as: "Apple too busy evading taxes to actually compete; tries to take best phone off of market." But maybe I'm just cynical.

Apple needs to be worrying more about the tax issues they have before the US Senate rather than this.Them and their fanboys need to grow up because this won't happen til another millenia.Samsung and Google keep it moving like they should and dominate like they're doing.

Shouldn't Apple bes sueing Google for the "Google Now" instead of Samsung? Why is Apple suing Samsung for a feature that WASN'T made by Samsung!!?? Apple your big boy now, grow some BOLITAS and go sue Google for that feature not Samsung.

They're going to sue over GoogleNow? Now is more advanced than Siri, the judge might even laugh at the idea. They are basically going at Samsung and Google-Motorola, Google could easily be like, the iPhone has bluetooth thats our patent, the iPhone is a phone, thats also now our patent, etc. Why you so desperate Apple?

"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". Enough of the f'n bull already. Apple's resources are running bone dry, and this is all they can do until the next iPhone(s) come out. Even then, their reputation (as well as their stock) has taken quite a blow because this is all they are known for doing as of late. Samsung doesn't need to sue to gain market share and attention; they just release the products, and despite being the subject of these lawsuits, consumers don't seem to care. Ten million units...the numbers don't lie. Apple needs to get a reality check. Do they really believe they can do all this garbage and no one will have a problem with it?

So glad I got rid of my iP4S and iP5 and decided to stick with Android which I find more interesting to use, although I have always had an iP since the release of the iP3G exception being the iP3GS! Seriously pissed by Apple's litigious approach to competition. Innovation NOT litigation Cupertino. You lost me for good with your attitude, not that you have ever innovated anyway, design is your forte! What a business model!! Goodbye forever!!!!
