Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

Please learn how to read and understand.

Apple is no innovator.
Apple has always stolen the ideas of others and then did a very good marketing.

Yes, because all Apple customers are moronic fuckwitts who are enamoured by shiny produces. Innovation is more than just rectum plucking an idea, it is about coming up with an idea or taking an existing idea then transforming it from a concept into a real world product that is useful for a consumer. No one cares who did it first but who delivered it in a way that is meaningful for the end user which in that regard Apple has done a good job.

Software patents are poison for progress and innovation.

The verdict is an american one and americans tend to hold to american businesses. There is also a strong tendency to "buy" your (self)justice - (Microsoft and ISO).

I consider this verdict a farce and a loss for the whole ICT-industry. It confirms the bad habit of suffocating other companies with "patents", that build on the same idea and try to improve it, the last being a basic aspect of the human civilisation.

Jobs is dead, now let us wait for apple to die.

Of course patents are a problem but guess what - you keep voting in the same idiots over and over again (since you refuse to disclose the country of origin you're from in your profile I'm going to assume you're from the United States) then this is what you get as a result.
