    With Android doing 3D and dual screen phones, phones with a lil ticker screen....from a year ago...its gonna be real hard for Apple to out innovate Android on the hardware side. Software....I doubt it again. Apple going to LTE .....thats old news for Android phones. I seriously think Android has past Apple on the innovation side of things. Its time for Apple to just focus on being another choice for a phone and stop trying to be the only choice. Or stop trying to force everyone to pick them as the only choice.

    And I think some ppl might not realize that a FRAND patent doesnt mean its free to use. FRAND just means one cant try to get outrageous license fees. This is what happened with the Apple vs Moto FRAND patent case. Apple wasnt paying ....anything.... . The same type of thing could happen with HTC/Samsung vs Apple. We will see how it all unfolds when the iPhone 5, new iPhone releases.

    According to the various articles, the patents in question aren't FRAND patents. Besides, I thought FRAND meant that the patent owner had to allow other companies to license them, and had to charge the same they charge other companies. For example, assume Samsung has a FRAND patent that Apple wants to license. Samsung cannot refuse to allow Apple to license it, and Samsung also cannot charge Apple more for the patent that they are charging Motorola, or Nokia, or any other company.

    As pointed out by others LTE is not an industry standard and so doesn't fall under FRAND rules. There is no industry standard "4g" as of yet, its all marketing at this point with three different systems in place.

    You know.. its not a hatred of apple that compels me to want them wiped off the board...

    Its what they stand for now... IMHO, it seems like they're doing everything dirty and underhanded to keep the competition from over running them.. and then they release this excuse for an iphone... wtf!?!?!?

    The us patent system is broken and is working in their (iOS) favor... that's wrong.

    My big thing is this... I hate bullies.. its stupid to try to conduct business or life that way... I'm waiting for someone to make them look at how they are conducting themselves.. and wake them up.

    All they're doing is killing creativity... that's slowing down progress... how do we know what they could be preventing??
    .

    they don't, we don't... but one thing is for sure... spending billions on legal costs and defense, takes billions from r&d..

    I think we should just put the CEO's through boot camp and then stick em out on an island... lets see how much of a fight they really want to put up.. IMHO

    Off my soapbox..

    CNET had posted a comment someone made over Twitter, that Mark Cuban had retweeted, and it is very appropriate. The comment basically said that Apple has become the product that they were against in the iconic 1984 ad.

    Years ago, when the Apple computer held a minuscule single-digit market share against the "establishment" that was Microsoft and the PC, Apple was the darling of the counter-culturalists. Now Apple has become "the man".

    Personally I think this is pretty stupid and immature of Samsung and nothing more than a case of sour grapes.

    Sammie will get there money back, plus a few bucks. Then Apple will strike again. Then Sammie. Eventually they figure out that only the lawyers are making any money.
