This just in...Apple is calling the S4 an infringing product

Apple has confirmed it will add Samsung’s newest flagship, the Galaxy S 4 to its ongoing patent-infringement lawsuit. In a statement filed in the US District Court in California yesterday, Apple says it has analyzed the Galaxy S 4 and “concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S 4 as an infringing product.”

Of course it's 'infringing'... on crApples profit. And, it's kicking their ass at it.

I'd say they might be correct. Let's just leave the original verdict alone... it is what is is... ruling was against Samsung and they are still fighting it. But I could see that Samsung did not change much on the S4. Of course Apple is looking to included it. If it "looks" like the S3 and "works" like the S3 they are going to see if a judge will allow it in. It's worth millions (if not billions) of dollars to Apple. Who here would leave that kind of money on the table? Answer... someone who would be looking for a job the following day.

I love my iMacs, but I have never see a company that loves litigation like Apple. They want no competition for their iPhones and iPads. Well, here is the verdict......

And that is the chief reason why I will NEVER buy another Apple product EVER in my life! And I will continue to convince people that I encounter to not buy Apple products because of that reason.

Competition is good, it's what drives innovation and makes products better. Apple seems to be on this kick in which they, as you have said lordpuffer See Profile to eliminate competition in their market. I can't stand for that kind of behavior and again, I will convince others to boycott Apple products because of that reason.

I owned an iPhone 3GS and an iPhone 4 before I switched to Android. Never again will I ever buy an Apple product.

I think if anything, samsung owes apple a big "THANK YOU!" cause without these nonsense lawsuits, they wouldn't be where they're at today! (Does apple not realize that????)

Yeah its like the religious fanatics that made such a big deal about Gay equal rights and marriage (and look where that's going), or other anti christian things like TV shows...

Married With Children was withering in its second season until the religious wacko wife in Ohio filed suit and made national news and made people who never had watched do so and laugh their butts off at the well done SATIRE not reality she saw it as and instead of driving it off the air made it one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, and a big boost to FOX awareness overall.

Same was tried with the Simpsons (again from those who just can't understand SATIRE and only see literal reality) and since cartoon characters never age I think is now at 23 years the longest running prime time show of all time. That is what killed Married with Children the kids got too old.

I will never buy iCrap for this and other reason's. Apple overcharges and can't stand competition. With most of Apple products made in China it makes no sense that their products are more expensive.

Apple is a fraudulent company at it's core, all about profits and high salaries for it's CEO. Philanthropy isn't even in it's nature as it is with Microsoft.

Didn't they lose in Europe?

said by 'the article' :

The court wants Apple to reduce the amount of products on their infringing lists, but Apple believes the Galaxy S 4 poses more of an immediate threat than at least one of the other devices already named.

I'd love to hear Apple's definition of "immediate threat" ! And I can help Apple with which device to remove to allow room for the S4: the oldest and lowest-selling Samsung device currently on the list.

P2P Piracy could be seen as the same thing. Every new method of pirating is usually partially underground and then the MAFIAA starts to harp about it and suddenly it becomes a top Google search.

Howard Stern became huge by fueling his show off the content that got him in trouble. And his ratings always went up with every FCC fine.

The wardrobe malfunction during the superbowl? would have drifted off into the land of forgotten youtube videos if nobody had made issue of it.

If you consider what was done to his partners in the beginning, you would have to admit that apple/Mac was founded on something at least similar to piracy.

I doubt they have the ability to shut up.

Of course the patent system also needs to be fixed to stop this, Because lots of smartphone patent fights are over so called "Look and Feel" innovations. In simple terms if cars worked like the smart phone industry someone would actually be able to patent putting the accelerator on the right and the brake on the left.
