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.

Next time don't assume is directed to you, it wasn't.


Hence my request to not to be passive-aggressive and just come out and say who you're addressing.

It is obvious, to all the people that apologized google when it exploited the safary bug and now are saying it is apple's fault for exploting another bug.

Hiev,

Actually Thom is right on this one, it's a strange the write a comment the way you did without intending to address someone. And given that top level comments are frequently used to address the author by default, it does seem as though you may have been responding to him.

Don't be so tough on his reasonable request for a clarification!


"It is obvious, to all the people that apologized google when it exploited the safary bug and now are saying it is apple's fault for exploting another bug."

Who exactly?
