    Count me in. Crapple is no different than a politician, tho much more corrupt, hypocritical, and way deeper pockets, which makes them dangerous. Hopefully the judge overseeing all this nonsense will take a cue from that other judge that made crapple post on their own website that Samsung's whatever it is(galaxy tab?) didn't look like the ipad. Tho it is definitely important to protect said person's personal creations, this isn't What crapple is doing, they're finding loopholes and abusing these patent systems, just as they abuse the tax loopholes that they're in. Pretty gosh dam corrupt ass company, tho not very many are morally decent, crapple definitely takes the cake. Can only hope that they get shot down over and over and it costs them so much money that they just give up and go back to the drawing boards and get back to actually creating something new, ala iPhone in '06 or '07.

    Yep, in many cases Apple has not invented anything. However, giving credit where credit is due, they sure have a way of being at the forefront of revolution. Think about it, they may not have been the first to integrate all the internal components in to the back of a monitor and it was a smash hit. I know all the teachers at my old high school used them for teacher related tasks. Then look at the iPhone. Even dumb phones were able to use apps back in the day, but apple did it in a way that started that brought smart phones to the main stream consumer where previously the main smartphone was Blackberry and mostly only people who needed a smart phone for work related tasks actually used them. Now everyone, even the tech illiterate, has a smart phone.

    It's not apple it was Steve Jobs. Look at what happened when they let him go in the early 90's. Then her hours and creates Pixar and toy story. Then her Congress back and it's like an injection (rofl Swype put infection) of innovation back into apple. Now he's dead... Hopefully apple with it.

    When John Scully nearly killed Apple and Steve Jobs came back, Apple was literally within 30 days of closing their doors. It took an infusion of money by Bill Gates and Microsoft to help keep Apple going.

    um, your statement is extremely hard to read, but if I understand it correctly...

    Steve Jobs did not "create" Pixar. He bought it, from George Lucas I believe. The biggest thing he did for Apple during his time away was to acquire a company called "NEXT" that designed small PCs. While the concept and company never took off, most of Apple's new OS, that was a big part of their resurgence when Jobs returned was developed at NEXT. Jobs was a genius (in terms of development, running a company and especially at promoting) and Apple is in trouble without him. Right now they are grasping at straws because the iPhone 5 will likely be less than impressive

    I have an issue writing clearly with Swype... Yes that's essentially what i meant.

    Bottom line is that apple is in serious trouble and they know it. I may not agree with everything Steve jobs believed but i cannot deny he was a genius

    Many dictators and serial killers are geniuses. Doesn't make them good people.

    The man was out of his mind on a lot of issues. He became everything that he hated about Microsoft, but 10X worse.

    Lol I read it followed it, but I still don't see how they can prove they took sales from them. In my little world that falls on the customer. Maybe they wanted a galaxy s device instead of an I device. Just saying but whatever.
