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.

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?

Dude, I just clarified, I admit I wasn't clear anought.

And you know what, Samsung nor Google won't downgrade shit, they will just update the applications w/o the patent violations apple claim.

But I see a lot of chicken littles here.

Looks like it is to much to ask you to read the comments.

Hiev,

"Looks like it is to much to ask you to read the comments."

What are you going on about?? Seriously if you can't or won't indicate who you were addressing then why should I or anybody else have to do detective work to find out who it might be? I'm guessing that your original statement was just a blanket generalisation without anyone in mind. And you know that's fine, really...but you should just say so instead of getting defensive.

There's no need to tussle over such trivial things.
