    I understand them trying to protect their ideas, but why not just ask people to change their implementations? They already have money, they don't need any more.

    It's patents like this that spur innovation by not allowing companies to copy each other.

    Did you two even read the article? It clearly shows that Neonode had the idea first in the Windows CE Neonode N1m . Apple copied them, just like they do with every other so called "invention" of theirs.

    For the record Einstein came up with one of the most revolutionary theories and many more, and he did it when he was young. He just did not get noticed until he was old.

    for the record, he was an ambitious little punk who took took the world by storm before turning 30.

    The Swiss PTO knew what they were doing, when they hired nervous, circumspect young men, struggling to feed their families on a crappy paycheck. They hired A. Einstein because he was a n00b, college graduate, figured that he was smart and probably wouldn't make a ruckus.

    They were right on everything but the last bit.

    We make a fetish out of old farts, but the young farts are the tricky ones. They think your technology is lame and make up new rules because they can't be bothered to learn the old rules.

    Read my quote. It's the same thing. I'm basing it on child saying "it's mine!". Apple by far isn't the only one.

    Its all about money and bribing and lobbying. I bet and predict that couple of years later someone will reveal some kind of scandal that apple paid heavy ransom monies to the govt officials to get patents but since time will be gone and nothing could have been done about it. I bet!

    Do you even know what 'innovation' means?!

    Stopping other companies from copying forces them to 'innovate', forcing them to come up with a new way of unlocking.
