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.

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.


What is the evidence that software patents stifle innovation? Is there less innovation in the US than countries that do not enforce software patents? Is there less innovation in US the since software patents were legalized? Why are there so many Silicon Valley venture capital firms is innovation is being stifled? If you really believe Apple is dying by all means short the stock.
"

Do you write code? Do you have any code that you wrote that is successful in the operating system market? Do you write any code that competes with Apple or Microsoft in marketplace? If so How many software patents do you have in your war-chest?
