I used to be an Apple fan-boy, and this makes me sick... I'll always appreciate the build quality of Apple products, and you can pry my MacBook Pro out of my cold dead hands, but really? Suing Sammy over the SGIII and worse getting a patent for a wedge shaped laptop? What's next? The other issue, what's wrong with our legal system that this crap can occur in the first place?

I'm going to patent the action of swiping my tissue-covered finger across my backside to clean myself after defecating. After I do so I will sue anyone that tries to wipe their ass. hmmm wait that sounds like APPLE!

Lol you can do whatever the hell you want in this world, just as long as you have the money to pay for it. Apple getting patents and suing people just shows how much money they have to wipe their asses with. And there's a reason why they have so much money, they put out High Quality and Dependable products. Samsung is a major competitor to apple because their lines have been claimed as the best android phones around, so of course Apple has them in their crosshairs (you can't lie the s3 white kinda looks like an iPhone. And past galaxy s phones somewhat mimic past iPhone looks). But even with that said they're not as dependable or don't receive as great/speedy updates as iDevices do. iDevices get all the new cool apps and games first, good support and they almost do everything an android can . Problem with android is there is hundreds of phones with different hardware. Making it so hard for developers to make apps on android to keep everyone happy. They literally have to make different versions and patches for their apps for specific gpu's and such, and a lot of times you wont get a certain app or game for awhile or not at all compared to iDevices. Also lets not forget the bugs with android, i know I have to flash fixes or roms to make it more stable or speedy, when iDevices dont require many fixes just mods to your liking. And that's why Apple is top dog making the most money. There have been so many "iPhone killer" phones that came out that didn't live up to its claim. All they can hope for is market share. S3 being one of those phones people are expecting to kill the iPhone, which sadly won't happen. S3 is gonna be a great phone but it already lost a good number of hopeful customers with the removal of the quad core processor. And the Siri copy cat.... Its a iPhone rip off pretty much. No wonder Apple is suing, I would.


I'm not an Apple fan boy. I love both OS for their own unique differences and own both. Just saying.... Apple is top dog, and will do anything and sacrifice all resources required to keep it that way.

The new Camaro kinda looks like the new Challenger, but you don't see Dodge suing Chevy for putting four wheels and a steering wheel on it.

Actually Apple WAS granted at one time a patent for rectangular phones, lol. Like most patent law that goes to the courts, the patent was modified to something more strict and less broad.

The problem really isn't Apple, or any other cell phone company. They ALL do the lawsuits, but that's because the US Patent system is so ****ed up they have too. Patents are handed out like candy and written so broad that just about anything violates a patent. So neither Apple or Moto or Samsung is the issue. It's the damn patent office.
