Apple withdraws patent claim against Samsung phone
posted by Alan F. / Dec 28, 2012, 2:17 PM
Samsung launched the smaller sized version of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S III on October 5th in Europe. In its filing with the court, Apple noted that although the phone isn't sold in the U.S., it was able to order multiple units of the device from Amazon and have them shipped to the U.S. Despite this, Samsung said that it was not "making, using, selling, offering to sell or importing the Galaxy S III mini in the United States." And on the basis of that statement, Apple withdrew its claim against the phone, "so long as the current withdrawal will not prejudice Apple's ability later to accuse the Galaxy S III mini if the factual circumstances change."

Lol Alright you Apple fanboy.. you do realize that all Apple does is copy what someone else already did, re-engineer it, patent it as their own. Then sue anyone that copys them.... And you want Samsung to stop "copying"? Please...

These fruit fans don't understand a bit of technology mate. What they know is just talk non - sense without any reason. Today if you compare an iPhone 5 with Oppo find 5, iPhone 5 falls by the way side. And according to fruit fans other companies are copying them. Hahahaahhaha come on Fruit fans just know how to double tap on their home - screens to close an app and how to use a volume rocker button to take photos.And this is the main reason why they buy fruit gadgets..!!

I know it is funny (on the other had sad) but it is true, if you have an iPhone and want to buy a case for it, then there is one unwritten rule there MUST BE a hole for Apple logo in other way it ruins everything and you are not cool... :(

At my age, I try to hold some composure and remain somewhat passive in an individual's remarks. But, your over the top, massive cheerleading for Apple by failing to research history pertaining to Apple, only confirms that your use of "Copying" is misdirected and contains insufficient knowledge. Having been around Apple for thirty 30 years, I can safely say that it is Apple that has copied many technologies in order to get where it is today. Quit trying to paint Apple as the perfect child. When I look at a Samsung device vs an Apple device, I don't see any resemblance. If people can't tell the difference of the two(especially when the two plaster their logos and names on them), then there's more of an intellectual issue rather than design issue. There are so many tech discoveries in which Apple "Stole" only to claim as its own. To think Apple is the almighty in innovation, severely down plays any intelligence you might possess. And while we're at it, what's up with Apple implementing "copying" within court system? Is it infringement or copying? Copy sounds like playground gibberish. Just how Apple is conducting this little facade. "Mommy, Joey is copying me!" It would be wise to to learn a little before repeating everything you hear on tech blogs. I have found tech blogs can be written by people that never knew anything about Apple before the iPhone. Since I owned Apple products for 9 years when Apple wasn't "Cool", I think I know a thing or two. That's why our generation either left Apple for Windows, or didn't give Apple any attention at all. There's more to a company than pretty, shiny objects. John B.

Slammer - This has got to be the best post I've read this year. Directly to the point and not hurting anyones feel bads intentionally. Apple makes products that appeal to many people. I loved my iPod touch until it just stopped working. The gripe I have is people not sticking up for apple intelligently. You like apple, I like android and the next guy likes windows, all hopefully for good reasons. I don't like android because of the cute little "robot". It seems people like apple just because its a status quo. My take on the lawsuits is apple is trying to dominate the world. How many lawsuits did apple file, since 1gen iPhone, under Steve jobs? Now how many since his passing? I personally respected jobs for his abilities. He knew how to design and more importantly MARKETING. Steve jobs knew he got his customer base in cell phones due to marketing. Plain and simple. In other words, he could sell a lemon as a diamond. The fact you followers don't see this is the beauty of it all. You bought lemons and still can't make lemonade, unless of course you buy the cord, blades, sweetner and mixer, from us at a premium....

You mean like how Apple stole the PC GUI, slide to unlock, rows of icons, notification shade, wireless sync (from one of its own itunes developers, poor kid. They didn't even bother to change the icon)? That kind of copying
