Re: Apple asks judge to ban Samsung devices...

How is Samsung a 'hacker'? How have they 'damaged' Apple?

Was the iPhone the first "Candy bar" phone? No.
Was it the first touch screen phone? No.
Was it the first smartphone? No.

What Apple did (since they never created cell phone before 2007) was create a popular smartphone with a touchscreen and no physical keyboard.

Would we find it acceptable if Ford asked that all cars, other than Fords, be banned, since they were the first to create car on an assembly line? No.
Would you be okay if IBM decided that computers can only be made by IBM? No.
Should RIO (or Saehan - but we'll say RIO) have Apple banned from selling iPods? RIO invented MP3 players, not Apple. Perhaps they should sue for billions for that, since Apple copied that.
Perhaps Microsoft should be suing Apple for the iPad, since the iPad was not the first tablet.

I love my Apple products, but they're being ridiculous. They're creative, they have good marketing, and the improve things, but they don't invent anything 'new'. They look at things from a customer point of view, rather than basic business POV.

I am pretty sure if Apple were a car company they would sue everybody for putting the gas pedal on the right claiming its an "innovation"

Well...I bet it would be Teh%u2122 Speediest. Whatever the case, they'd perfect something that would impress the masses. Then they'd turn around and sue companies that did the same thing, even if some company already did it 20 years previously.

Was the apple 1st "Candy Bar" PC??? and Microsoft copied the world of it???? Innovation is one thing, patent trolling is another.

With this news there's no difference between a Patent troll and Apple, period.
