Thread: HTC Goes on the Offensive Sues Apple Over Everything

    Yea because an uprising would just make the law enforcers interpret the laws differently just to satisfy an angry mob.

    Falsifying evidence got Apple the injunction it needed against Samsung.
    And why should the patents HTC own hold any less value than Apple?

    Why is it funny a Taiwanese company suing an American company? Are you suggesting American government will not enforce laws because America is above the law?

    Your reasoning is horribly flawed. The reaction of product owners is absolutely irrelevant. The courts don't just decide "this will piss off too many owners, therefor we'll just rule in favor of Apple here" If it is ruled that Apple infringed on HTC's patents, there will likely be a payoff and/or contract deal.

The Internet was amazing for the time but horribly slow compared to today's standards which wouldnt be where it is if not for the iPhones popularity. Would we have mobile sites now? Possibly but iPhone users demanded it and apple delivered.
    Thank you apple for the iPhone. Which by the way no carrier would pick up because "who in their right mind would spend that much for a phone." -thank you AT&T.
    Apple implemented a touch screen and GUI that was extremely easy to navigate and use, and required no stylist.

    Let's just face the facts. No mobile device would be what it is today if not for apple.
    I think you are giving a little too much credit to Apple. Just before the iPhone hit the streets (let's say a year or so) smartphones, namely blackberries, started getting pretty popular with the "average Joe" (read: non-businessmen) crowd. In short, Apple's product shaped today's cell phone's like Pacific Bell's first mobile phone shaped the industry (and other in between). Those before Apple expect their patents to be respected and used under license only.

    Apple has certainly changed the playing field, just like contributions of smartphone manufacturers did prior to that. It is largely irrelevant that Apple's UI is smoother or better in every way one can imagine than HTC's is, was, or ever will be. What we are talking about here is patent infringement. FWIW all of Apple's patents HTC was guilty of infringing existed long before (10+ years) the iPhone. The point is, it doesn't matter. Do I agree with it? Not necessarily. But if Apple gets their day in the sun, so should HTC.

    How could apple have infringed on something that had before that company? Apple's iOS looks nearly the same as it was when it was launched, and when the first htc android phone was launched a little after the iPhone, it looked like sh*t and very closely resembled iOS 1.0 because it was running on the default android os. So if anybody should be getting sued, it should be google. Google's os clearly is meant to resemble iOS.

    So what your saying there is, that if HTC win Apple fanboys/girls will rise up & moan because Apple broke the law? I'm sorry but it's not one way for Apple & another for every other company in the world, you break the law you pay for it, simple.

    I for one will not rise up I'm sorry but iOS has gone stagnant, I have owned an Apple device since the first gen iPod right up to the iphone4 & iPad & it's the same OS I want something new something that's not the same every year.

    I personally think this is why Apple sue so much as more & more people will realise this as time goes on & look else where, but if Apple stop the competition then were stuck.
    Apple are Control freaks we need to stop them before they take over the world!!

    The funny thing is when apple gets an injunction against competitors than that is exciting!!!
    When the competitor tries to get the same because apple infringe their patents than the whole thing is boring!!

    LoL

    Whats wrong with Taiwanese? Dont be racist and be smart. Dont be stupid to give comment.

    Sue sue sue... Apple did stupid, HTC does is only react what apple has done to them.
    Apple, if you can win the competition, please be fair. Android already won the battle and now Apple just play politic under the law.
    Nowdays I'm thinking Steve Jobs and his apple start act like George Bush.

    HTC gotta try everything they can, with Google buying Motorola that puts them outside the Droid loop now. This will not amount to anything.
