Samsung vs. Apple: Corporate Warfare the Sequel

In Uncategorized on October 5, 2011 by reibroker Tagged: , , ,

Isn’t it amazing how times change and so do the contestants on the battlefield for your consumer dollar changes? For that matter as the products change we see small players explode onto the scene and challenge companies who, only months before, would have bought them and gutted them just to shut them up.

Well, that’s not what’s happening here – this is more bloody that that!

Samsung seeks to ban iPhone 4S amid patent row

SkyNet is your friend …

A reference to Terminator for those not familiar, SkyNet is the great mechanical collective making war on the human race. I really don’t equate Google with SkyNet but for their competition it may, at time, seem that way.

Google versus Apple and RIM. That’s what this war is. Apple just won a suit against HTC for patent infringement but that won’t matter to Google because they didn’t gobble up HTC, they gobbled up (shall we soon change that to googled up?) Motorola Mobility.

Google’s Motorola acquisition: Nail in the Android patent coffin?

Google on Monday announced plans to acquire handset maker Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion in cash.

Google is to become a mobile manufacturer — competing with Apple and Research in Motion directly.

Putting these together, Google is paying a huge price for the handset manufacturer — to build dedicated Google handsets for the Android operating system.




Sour Apples

I’m all for protecting patents, trademarks and copyrights. Except people who say God inspired them. Maybe it works for people who say LSD inspired them, too, Mr. Jobs.

Either way Apple still sucks in my experience and I love my Evo and Xoom for hundreds of reasons. I once drank the Apple koolaid and it upset my tummy – very badly. I only use an Apple product by absolute force these days.

This finding, however, if it’s accurate should go through. If HTC did violate Apple’s patents then they should pay. Period. Gag, cough, hack. There, I said it. Apple may deserve to win this one.

Apple deals massive patent blow to HTC, Android in serious trouble

Just how serious is this ruling for HTC? Very serious. The worst-case scenario is that the ITC imposes an US import ban against all of HTC’s Android products. That’s how serious this is for HTC.




Apple wins wide ranging patent suit

Apple owns the patent to the mobile touch screen…

If you want to dance with the devil sue the bugger. Or at least as close as you can get. Nokia and Samsung have been sparring in court with no-holds-barred Apple over various technology patents for the last several months and one by one they are coming before the judge.

In technology and art it’s not who actually did something first it’s who patented or otherwise protected it first. In a few of these cases it appears apple may have been the first to submit the paperwork. Unlike a business name or trade-name patents go by date filed not the date first used in commerce. (I’m not a lawyer, I’m a multiple lawsuit winner :)
