Apple wins preliminary injunction on Samsung GALAXY Nexus, can aim for Samsung Galaxy S III next
Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has issued a preliminary injunction against the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, giving Apple what it requested. The Cupertino based firm accused Samsung of infringing on four of its patents in the production of the phone and will have to post a bond of nearly $96 million to get the injunction to take effect. A patent involving Siri and unified search, one of the four that Samsung allegedly infringed upon, met the legal requirements allowing the Judge to order the injunction.The scary thing for Samsung is that Apple can now set its sights on the Samsung Galaxy S III. Apple was going to add the extremely popular device to this case, as there are two patents involved with the GALAXY Nexus that Apple thinks can stick in court, including the '604 Siri patent. Apple does have a tough decision to make. If it decides to ask for a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy S III, it will have to postpone the trial of the first lawsuit against Samsung. However, a motion over one patent wouldn't take too long and we would imagine that Apple would relish the opportunity to get sales of the sizzling hot Samsung Galaxy S III halted, even if only temporarily.source: FOSSPatents

When you look at iOS you can easily make out that they are using all of the features from different mobile OS like Android, Windows, Web OS, RIM, Symbian and Meego. I believe all these companies should come up together and sue Apple for their patents. I just want to say one thing that Apple got scare and they can see their dark future in the next few months because of the release of Google Nexus 7, Windows phone 8, Windows Surface and many other cool devices which are not based on dead icons and are not similar to their s**tty iOS.

For a company so loved.. why are you so hated? Because of crap like this... You're aim is to control everything including not having competitors products on the market. Forcing those not in the herd to clan up. Not gonna happen, no matter how many silly little bans you receive. Companies will rise up and seek to destroy you even more with moves like this. Sorry Apple your popularity is only going down. Your reign is coming to an end. Google Android OS is real. A real threat to you and MS but you don't see MS throwing temper tantrums suing left and right. Grow up and realize capitalism is America's way of life where choice reigns supreme.

Every girl at my school has an Apple device. The parents either have Apple devices (from the girl telling them how "great" it was) or an Android (from personally being an intelligent consumer). It's ALL A TREND. You still don't get it. People get what is most popular. The awards are given for what is most popular. What is popular? The stupid, simple iPhone. Thus Apple gets lots of money. EVERYONE that bothers to do research knows Android can do more and is better than the iPhone. Android couldn't have copied iOS because it is better than iOS. One is s**tty, the other is awesome. DEFINITELY not the same things.

so.. people buy Android because they are mostly free with a 2 year agreement, they dont care about Android.. they just want a free phone.. so we can assume most of Android consumer dont know about Amdroid..? but you wont admitt to that right?

So they can design a phone : kudos to theFruit for that even as they CHOOSE to Rape consumers with a 74% profit per device. So sad that they could Still enjoy a 47% Pure Profit if they CHOSE to support their own Country with Real American Jobs but no, they go for the EXCESSIVE Profits instead of helping their fellow citizens and Still Reap Record Profits. TheFruit is Anti-America by Choosing this route. 1. Anti America 2. Sues Others over "theft" then turns right around and does the same with ios 5 ( and 6 as previews show ) 3. Has the Highest Paid Legal Staff 4. Anti Capitalism 5. COULD Help America BUT Chooses Profit over Benefit TheFruit is digging their grave as we speak. While Android OS continues to climb ( now at 61% up from 58% 1st Quarter ) theFruit is Stagnant at 28% (as per Quarter 2, 2012 and actually Down from the 31% share from Q4 2011). Am i surprised to see them Suing right & left ? Actully, yes. TheFruit USED to be a Highly Responsible & Respected company. Is theFruit Doomed? No, But they're Shooting Themselves straight in the foot with all the "goodwill" they're spreading. Already 2 of my fruit toting friends have vowed to never upgrade or get Any Fruit products ever again and these 2 are Not Alone : theFruit will not see any noticeable growth in their SmartPhone arena if it doesn't actually Shrink (as is already happening in Europe). I only Pity this company now as they've ditched All Reason in the pursuit of more Profit over its' now outdated phone.

Based on the charts they will not be high for long....5th wave top will happen then be ready for the fall. I chart stocks and can tell you it will fall. If you don't believe me look at the post that said a trader said apple will pull back to 545-565, and I said more like 525.00 and it did. It will retrace after tge years end if not before.

Apple just said that the galaxy nexus is causing them "irreparable harm" in order to get the injunction. Google it....or just look above.

Which IMO makes Apple look even more ridiculous....they arent losing any money or marketshare from all the 'copying'... Its amazing tho...I do hope every manfacture just comes with a unique way for the same thing...then Apple can go off in peace and leave them be.

Hopefully a businessman like Romney will step in and lower the huge f**king debt in our country.
