have you guys in here lost it and not followed any of the other threads reagarding the patent issue.
The main reason Nokia is after Apple is that they created the GSM network and the technology behind it. Apple being the only company that is not paying the royalties to Nokia, all other companies do. This battle has been going on for a very long time it has only come to light recently as Nokia are now taking them to court.
BTW I was a Nokia user for 14 years until August when I change to iPhone, it doesn;t make me say whether Nokia are right or Apple or right due to what brand of phone I have it is do with Apple stealing technology from Nokia, Apple are the first to take companies to court for lesser things.

Opti Inc. v. Apple Inc. Apple paid 19 mil
If you noticed, an app opens faster is you opened it previously. That's what Apple snatched.
Apple Guilty of Patent Infringement | iPhone Winterboarder
Apple Stole the technology that we use on iPhone Safari.
United States Patent: 7441196
These are just 3 but there are many others that don't make it to trial and many are not covered by the news. The fact remains that Apple along with the other big companies like Microsoft do not like to pay royalties. It's cheaper to buy out the small company or pay a lump sum in a judgment if the plaintiff has the resources to hold a 2-5 year long suit.
Apple did not come to an agreement with Nokia over it's GSM and Wifi control patents and used them anyway.
Do your homework and you'll see Apple in a different light. Behind the glamor of the iPhone, iMac, iPod and all the advertising there are truly ruthless and evil people whose goals are to sell you cheap Chinese crap and get your money.
PS. I got Win Vista, Win 7, iMac and a Debian box for packaging themes. I also got 2 snowboards and some kind of rash on my left butt cheek. lol

btw, what kind of themes are you working on? Phones or OS?

To the point of this post.
Nokia is loosing ground to a company that originally made computers. That company then started to make MP3 players and took a commanding lead in that market. Now they make phones too. Nokia has always been a leader in its industry until RIM came out with the Blackberry. they started to loose market shares to that product line. Now Apple is poised to take their market share and over take them. Nokias strategy seems to be lets freeze the major source of income for apple and lock their products down then they can't take us over. It's weak and desperate but hey to each their own.

I dont think any one steel or stole Technology from each other...because Technology are beign patent and registered and if you use the same kind of type of touchscreen but with 1 one wire that goes on the other side of the chip or with other software..you are not stealing.. Cmon guys...
Technology is there for everyone.. why complaining that someone steal it?
I mean look how many device that look the same and does the same.
I think stealing a Design look like is something they should be looking at and that stupid Technology has been around for yearsss.. Since when do we know that there is TOUCH SCREEN? ..I dont know the year but its a long time but people had other priority first to make other things better than this touch screen for example. And so we can go on..
Another example.. Why the hell are Cars still so Expensive while years ago till now its still using tha STUPID Gas... Only Technology has been added..and guess what.. OLD technology...Radio..Ppower window... Some stupid Leds to glow to make it luxier..etc..etc...
I mean..lets get real.. EVERYONE IS STEALING FROM EVERYONE>..
Even you that is reading... go in the WC and think about it....

It would be nice for we the people (sounds familiar?) to know what are these so called infringments; it seems easy for me, let Nokia disclose the patents and (most) of us would notice the infringment or not since we use the technology every day.
In another respect, it seems to me that the comercial aplications of the patents has brought zillions to Apple, so why would Nokia (if they had the original patents) did not pursue the aplications themselves so THEY would have made zillions?
Apple and Steve Jobs may have done some things that could be disagreeable in some instances, but I doubt that the Nokia allegations have consistency. And really? ALL Apple products?!?!?
Looks to me that the only thing certain in this matter is a LOT of money for attorneys!
the only thing sad for me is that I'm not one of them...

i agree with most of you i love apple and their products, if apple has taken any of Nokia's patents why have they waited so long to file suets?
what about all of those who are copying apple and its technological advancements why i apple just laughing at all of the imitations and keeps killing off the competition left and right?
you guys just have to wait untill apple is free of at&t's limitations!
the iPhone has so much potential, more than it has now, imagine if they integrate adobe flash, actual flash for the camera, 4g, and a videoconferencing camera on the front of the iPhone, the iPhone will be unstoppable!

Nokia has a legitimate case. Apple has refused to play by the rules the rest of the industry abides by, and they are making out like a bandit for it. Just because they have made the most successful phone doesnt mean that they get a get out of jail free card.
To all you Apple diehards who only see life through Cupertino-colored glasses, please look at the situation subjectively and and understand that Apple is WRONG for doing this. Not to say that Nokia is the Virgin Mary or anything - but the case definitely holds water.

This is getting too disgusting...Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

.....said that Apple was trying "to get a free ride on the back of Nokia's innovation".....
yeah i totally forgot about the nokiaTouch, the NokBook and their several desktops. if you designed a patent. youd also design a product. shheesh. Nokia is just an ambulance chaserkillall Terminal

Apple is killing the competition left and right because the competition are still making smart phones when instead they should be making mobile computers with phone capability. The consumer has spoken and Apple is the only one that listened. Google is trying but didn't get the entire idea yet.
01-06-2010, 11:55 PM #38
No one cares that iPhone does it better, thats not the point of argument. Apple has and is making a shi7ton of money off intellectual/technical properties that are not their own. Lesser companies have been shut down for what Apple is currently doing.
Psystar. Google it.

my point being....now, if you had really paid attention son. and i say son, due to the fact that you need to listen. if you have such a fantastic idea. such as dyeing your balls green. dont just say your gonna do it. do it. if they absolutely patented a unique and ground breaking technology. a company, even as lowball and cheesy as nokia, would implement and design this technology as soon as possible. not just sit on it and wait for someone else to come up with the same idea, and then say they stole it. realize this. that more than one mind can have the same mind bending end result, without ever conversing or crossing paths in any way of the other subjects intentions. ive had this very situation occur with myself. i guess i should sue for someone stealing my very personal but open ideas.killall Terminal

Guys before you all defend Apple, I know this is a apple forum just have a guick look at why Nokia are suing,
From The Guardian:
The 10 patents at issue in the Apple case relate to technologies that are "fundamental" to making devices that are compatible with one or more of the current wireless standards – GSM, UMTS (3G W-CDMA) and wireless LAN. "The patents cover wireless data, speech coding, security and encryption and are infringed by all Apple iPhone models shipped since the iPhone was introduced in 2007," Nokia said.
The company said it had invested more than €40bn (£36bn) in research and development over the past two decades and had successfully entered into licence agreements, including these patents, with approximately 40 companies, including virtually all leading mobile vendors.
If you read that article or simply Google "Why is Nokia suing apple" you'll see why. Nokia invented how our mobile phones work and other companies respect that investment that they made and pay the royalties, Apple being Apple doesn't want to do anything nicely, so refused to pay any royalties so Nokia has resorted to suing and this is after years or Nokia battling with Apple, its only the court cases that have brought this to light.
Oh and those who say 'technology is for everyone' if you want to live in a capitalist society then its not technology is for people who buy it thats how our world works, not fantastic but thats how it is.
Please read before you start backing Apple and saying Nokia are being unreasonable when without Nokia we wouldn't have an iPhone or anywhere need the level of wireless communication that we have today.
EDIT: Just notice the post above,

Also thinking of an idea and telling people doesn't make it yours, you need to patent it to have some sort of legal protection.
