No offense, but I don't know about all that..

They need to.

Apple is acting like a 2 year old constantly claiming that they infringed on patents.

If I was Samsung I would have told Apple to screw off last year.

hahaha... yeah, good luck Apple at finding an alternative supplier that can produce the same high quality and reliable yields for you and who actually want your business...

The Bloomberg report implied that some trial is set for 2014 already between the two, this isn't over by a lllllloooooonnnnnnngggggggg way yet folks..

And people will just get more bored of it and Apple.

Hearing this so often lately Apple really needs to be careful. So many people got into Apple through word of mouth they don't want to piss too many off. I still think osx is best, wish they cared as much on their computers as ios.

This is a blatant direct attack at Google! NOT Samsung, the Galaxy Nexus has the totally untouched straight from Google Android, therefore NO modifications are applied to it what so ever, so this is a blatant direct claim that Android breaches Apples software patents.....

Now this is going to be worth watching, cause unless someone can show me how Jellybean copies Apple? Then it's utter BS.
This. There is no "Samsung implementation" of Jellybean on the Galaxy Nexus, it has the completely untouched version straight from Google. My guess is that Apple has nothing to back this up and is just trying to get a possible sales ban since they failed to do it last time around.

Apple has also said it wants to add a number of Samsung products with stylus pens to its lawsuit as well, Bloomberg reports.

The case regarding the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Samsung's implementation of Jelly Bean is scheduled for trial in 2014. Judge Lucy Koh will also consider appeals in the previously decided Samsung v. Apple case in December.

That reads like Apple are suing Samsung for copying a stylus!

About that Nexus sales ban, from the Bloomberg report:


The case in which Apple added the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Jelly Bean operating system is scheduled for trial in 2014.

Apple already has won a preliminary order from Koh blocking U.S. sales of Samsung’s Nexus smartphone. In August,


And I guess Apple is going against Wacom Digital too in a way seeing as that's who's technology the Note devices use?

I wish Apple had the S-Pen. They should just license that from Samsung.

Apple should use the money they're spending at court to resume conception of innovative product.

Is it because you're an extreme Apple fanboy and really like the logo? I'm legitimately curious.

You're tone doesn't really sound good. It read like, you view Apple as your god, and that phrase sounded like, "Daddy's thinking about buying Adobe." As if you have some deep affiliation with apple. Daddy and kid, with the kid bragging about his daddy.

We're going back quite a few years. I think it was early 1990's. I'm sure Apple has a ton of patents relating to handwriting with a stylus. That was a big thing back in the day. I'm old enough to remember, unfortunately.

I've always thought Apple is one of the most unethical and childish companies out there... they continue to prove it.

Even then I still like Apple products but I'm about ready to jump ship.

Apple is no better than LODsys or Proview. I mean a lawsuit for the stylus? Where in HE double L did this crap come from? Not a single one of there current products even uses a stylus.

This just might be the most frivolous lawsuit I have seen by a company that is already in a winning position

...yet somehow, some way, someone is going to post how right Apple is in this case.
