Internet & Networking Think companies only use patents to block competition? Heck no, they apparently also use them to hinder the w3c standards process. As Opera's Haavard details, Apple is yet again using patents (or even just patent applications) to hinder or block the development of open standards. Sickening.

The only way this company will change is if people refuse to buy their products.

I do not own one little piece of Apple hardware or software, how about you?


I never bought anything from Apple and never will.

I've been free from Microsoft/Apple and I've been using Linux for the last 12 years, and it feels great!

So long Microsoft/Apple.
