I really want to know EXACTLY what Apple is suing Samsung for with the sylus? If it's hardware, then it is suing Wacom Digital, and I suspect it's similar with the software side? But I have no idea how a flipping stylus copies Apple in anyway.

And as i said above, with the Nexus the are just suing Google in effect, the case should be totally thrown out as Google Jelly Bean, NOT Samsung.

I wish Apple would pay a less attention to these lawsuits and more attention to component supply and resolving manufacturing issues. Maybe then they could release a product on time. Just saying.

I actually think its become comical. Judging by your posts, you seem to be the angry one. You don't see me eyerolling, do you?

Anyways, I challenge you to provide just one single link that backs up your assertion that Apple "invent[ed] the technology to translate handwriting with a stylus into editable digital text." Just one link.

Come on, they gave you a magical desktop that they tried to make you think was uber thin and not have a fat bottom, it has no DVD for your extra convenience and weight saving

I seriously won't be surprised if the new Mac Pro comes lacking any DVD drive, for it's $3000 and up price tag.. innovation at it's best.

So would I, but I want to see the Invention AND the Patent for it.

Unlike you, I am old enough to remember the "Newton". I remember at the time the tech to translate handwriting into digital text was a big deal. Apple was the only company at the time who could do this. If you expect me to look up patents online to make you happy. Well...think again. You are obviously young and petulant. You'll understand the world better when you grow up.

Good for you, I remember the Newton too and several other devices and when Apple nearly went bust..

But your comment is failing drastically at getting you out of the huge hole you've dug yourself into proclaiming Apple invented the editing feature.... NO PROOF NO FACT!

Please do not include statements in your arguments that you cannot, or refuse to back up, because they are blatantly false! Makes you look like a fool.

I love your rather pathetic assumption that A: I'm young, or B: age has ANYTHING to do with your comments that you are not capable of backing up with facts. As though, oh he was there man, he was there so what ever he say's MUST be totally true...

You are a silly little boy. I am not going to waste my time looking up patents online to make you happy. Please.....I am certainly not angry, though as I have said in previous posts I am quite amused by your like.

Oh really? They don't? I guess $1B isn't worth a dime to you... Yeah I know they are probably appealing the verdict, but that is still what the court system has officially stated that samsung owes apple....

And secondly, how in the world was that guy being racist? How dare he identify the nationality of Samsung.

Ah. There it is. They must've changed the name, because I'm on iOS5 on my iPad, and it's called Capacitive Slapscreen there.

Wow, Apple really does think of everything. :O

In other words you have nothing. And going by your comments, you seem to be the petulant one.

Really? Again?

Here is my tale on this. When good ole SJ said why are people using a stylus when we were born with the best one. Our finger.

Steve was thinking that MOST people would rather not use a stylus. But apple might be rethinking things because they are seeing that customers might want to use something like that. Apple is getting nervous about something they said is awful and wouldn't use them, they are getting scared that some of those devices are taking up market place and they are sweating. That's the only reason I could think of that they would bring it up

What exactly are they suing about with the stylus?

None of their products even use stylus'.

Pathetic, honestly.

This whole thing just smacks of desperation on Apple's part.

Digging up an almost 20 year old patent relating to a stylus (if there is in fact such thing) just to sue the competition because they are implementing a stylus when none of the products you currently sell that compete with the "infringing" product use a stylus, nor were they copied in this regard, only shows that Apple is doing this out of spite and bad faith.

This lawsuit can in no way shape or form be taken as Apple protecting it's innovations and IP. Lots of smartphones before the iPhone was unveiled were using a stylus (Sony for example had a couple of models out) and we didn't see Apple sue anyone because of it.

The Newton was discontinued back in 1998, since then Apple has not released a touchscreen device with a stylus and actually rejected and scoffed at the idea when they released the iPhone. Other companies continued to release devices with a stylus after the iPhone was released and Apple didn't feel compelled to sue them.

But now, because the competition has gotten hot and Samsung and other competitors have become a "threat" to their iOS devices, then now they want to sue companies using this patent.

How convenient. That's just an attempt to stifle competition, not to protect your IP

Yep - if it was anybody but Apple, it would be patent trolling. But since it's Apple, it's IP protection...

This thread shows just about everyone is. Usually when one of these debates fire up, the first couple of pages are filled with Apple cheerleading and accusations of theft. This time? It's all about the exasperation.

By this point, I think it's obvious Apple is suing everyone not to protect their innovations, but to keep the competition at bay.
