    This is starting to get boring. Apple are sore losers.


    From what I have heard 4.1 is supposed to be a lot faster than 2.3 and 4.0.

    Geeezzeeee. -_______-

    Completely ridiculous.

    Seems Apple's afraid of Android...

    Sounds like the usual "they took our ideas, not fair!"

    Imo if you make at least 30% changes to an existing patent you can technically still develop the new patent.

    Apple, welcome to the REAL world.

    Lol @Neon. xD

    Apple always blows things out of proportion. However, I do agree, this is uncalled for and unnecessary. It is only making them look worse, I believe..

    Google's Nexus seems to be rather stunning, but I have always detested Samsung with the raging passion of seven suns. :3 So, I don't care much xD

    @Gabby I just like the name of the phone. "Jelly Bean". :D And "nexus". :)

    But honestly actions have consequences. Apple's actions will have consequences that would eventually affect themselves.

    @Neon Yep, I believe Apple will also reap their karma in due time.

    And Jelly Bean is an ADORABLE name :3

    Is it all about the voice search? What does Apple have patented?

    Yup, and now we know why Google is trying to tackle Apple's marketshare on smart phones - in regards to the browser. And plus, they're both billion-dollar companies, so this could go on for a while.

    That's the thing, Apple and Google are major competitors in the phone market and Apple is just being a bitch about the situation. They should welcome competition instead of trying to block it because in the end - if one grows more - it brings more people to the market.

    It's like Apple doesn't want to give anyone else any chances of success. At least that's how I view it.

    I see it that way too... And if Apple is truly confident they wouldn't worry about Google taking their sales. :)

    True that, they're obviously not too confident about their product if they keep going after the smaller guys. Apple's marketshare is very huge compared to the others. I don't see Mcdonalds trying to shut down Burger King or anything like that - they're both in the same field. And you don't see Neopets going after other pet sites - so its just wrong.

    It just looks bad on their part and definitely alienates people from supporting Apple and their products. :|

    Yup, I'm surprised bloggers haven't wrote about this. It's like Apple is creating a monopoly in the smart-phone business. It they figure people are copying their product, then they should lease out the patents.

    I hope so, Apple needs a taste of their own medicine.

    Happy Google will win this, sad Samsung is involved with that. -_- I hate Samsung with a passion.

    I like Apple more than Samsung.. But this is ridiculous.
