Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Where were you when Nokia Corporation sued Apple for infringement of Nokia's patents relating to wireless technology?.


Don't know about the others but the patents Nokia sued over were non-trivial hardware patents, not slide-to-unlock style software patents.

I'd have no problem if Apple developed this kind of tech and others infringed upon it, but the stuff Apple is suing over is utter BS in most cases.
