They are patent trolls, as well as every other company in the cellular business, it seems any more.

But just keep in mind that it is also a pure business move on their part. The longer they keep other devices at bay and off the store shelves, the more apt people are to buy the iphone because there is no worthy competition at hand.

It has just the opposite affect on me. I'm even less likely to buy an iPhone because of this lawsuit. I have an iPod Touch that I bought last year that I don't use that much anymore because I now have an Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet and a Motorola Droid Bionic smartphone. Anything I could get on the iPod, I can now get on my Android devices. I keep it around in case my nephews want to play on it. I've got some programs on my iPod just for them.

The way that I look at it, if Apple has so much money that they can bring up these lawsuits against their competition then they really don't need mine. I don't want my money funding those lawsuits.

Not sure how you think they are losing. Apple is still making tons of money, the iphone is the best selling phone on the AT&T and Verizon and when the iphone 5 goes on sale it will sell in record numbers.

I just can't follow your logic.

Android marketshare is greater than iOS, the SG3 shipments surpassed iPhones = in terms of comparing sheer numbers, Apple is losing.

Same for me too. I've just lost complete interest in their company, and it's looking like my last and only purchase from apple will continue to be the 2nd generation ipod. Had it not been for their constant trolling I would have probably looked towards purchasing an iPad, but they aren't an option for me any more.

Of course, the Apple die hards will continue to buy anything from them, so they'll be fine financially.

Yep. You are right about that. I can't even flex. Apple makes obscene amounts of money.

The title of the thread isn't great, I'll admit. Created it in a state of anger not clear reason, is why.

There scared did any one see the article about them trying to ban other ultrabooks

Yeah, they submitted a design patent for a wedge shaped ultrabook. I think it's good for Apple to prevent blatant rip offs like Samsung did with the iPad.

This is sadly because apple was granted a patent for the design of the macbook air.

We really need to do something about patent reform in this country. It is just out of hand.

Everyone is afraid of their competition. Also I know this is an android forum so you all will highlight Apple suing this platforms hardware, but HTC, and Samsung are doing the same. A new lawsuit daily as well.

A few iPhone sku's vs how many hundreds of android phone sku's.

Shipments vs sales, there is a difference.

Apple is far from losing.

Not to be mean, and I'm new to Android, but I had to decided between maybe 30 Android phones, there are like 3 iPhones...
