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.

*face palm* and Windows users wouldn't know a well designed GUI even if it jumped out and gave them a lap dance (the person doing the lap dance happens to be of the said persons preferred gender).

Apparently Apple cares, or they wouldn't have sued. No matter how you slice it, this is bad for business in the United States. This is why I don't use Apple or Microsoft products. They use their money and power to kill real innovation, then scoop up the innovators' ideas for a steal, then call it innovation... only they weren't the real innovators, just the pirate that came in and scooped up the treasure.

No, its not. You do not even have to make a product what is why there are so many pure patent-troll companies sueing around.

useful for a consumer.


Wrong, the customer please zero role in the patent universe. Please read up on

He could also be from europe where software patents are valid too as long as the claim contains a "... running on a computer or similar technical device" closer.

Software-patents are a world wide problem. Global village effects and so on.

Dude have you ever seen the near riots that happen when a new Air Jordan is released? Apple is about branding, no different than Gucci and Prada. Do Gucci and Prada make nice products? Well I'm sure they do, but its not the fact that its a nice product that sells it...that's just a bonus.

No its the status thing that does a lot of the selling for Apple, just as Air Jordans I'm sure are nice but people don't have flash mobs for nice shoes, they do it for status items. Isn't it funny how the ONLY products you see people literally camping out ahead of time to get are Air Jordans and Apple products? Having last year's Apple is simply uncool daddy-o, Like wearing last year's fashions.

Not to say there is anything wrong with being into fashion, if that makes you happy? I wish you nothing but good fortune. Just be willing to admit its a fashion choice, that's all.
