Re: Apple to court
FRAND is normally used as cross licensing tool, i.e. you pay minimal amount to use my FRANDs and in return all your patents are available to me for more less minimal amount. Both of us win.
Apple being a c*nt that it is, refused to reciprocate.
That's why Jags & Aston are now in non-British hands!!!
Re: What I never got
The problem is patent leeches like Apple will not 'FRAND' their patents, they abused others' FRAND patents. Simply because their patents are not standard patents.
Leeches like Apple are expecting to pay $0.0001/device for FRAND and $30/device for theirs.

The mail order bride, an in app purchase?
There should be a photo-timeline of cameras before this design & after this design to how innovative Mr Ive is.
Alibaba buys a shit load of Acer phones then flash their own ROM onto them!
MS shills are in full force.
Mazda or other Japanese car, used to come top of the car version of the survey almost every year.
However, that did not stop people from buying BMW, Mercs etc...
Re: Smartphone/touch screen history
So before the first introduction of transistor radio, you don't think people were thinking about how to improve the size & quality of radio? So when Texas Instrument made the first transistor radio then Sony should be prevented from making & improving on transistor radio?
All this shows, e.g. w.r.t radio & HCI, is that some company will get to the next stage of evolution first.
But they all 'borrowed' from previous generations of products/technologies.
Nokia had developer guidelines & patterns for their phones before Apple had an iPod let alone an iPhone.
All companies/people play to their strengths.
Re: Pretty sure this entirely misses the point
Nokia has been in the phone business for a very long time, not some Johnny come lately like Apple.
They know how to work those carriers.
Simple fact is no punters want their gears. The carriers know it.
Re: Freetards don't get it
Yeah, those twunts think that they are entitled to use all those FRAND patents for free!
Riding on the back of others' R&D.
Just instructed my broker to buy at $2/share.
"Patent protection gives a very short period of economic exclusivity to exploit that method"
Remind me again, how many years patents are valid for?
Samsung is a big corporation, thus evil.
Apple is a big corporation, thus evil.
The jury found Samsung copied Apple does not mean that other tablet/phone makers will be affected too.
According to the foreman, http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-25/apple-samsung-jury-foreman-says-google-e-mail-persuasive.html, that what undone Samsung's case.
Other manufacturers whose tablets/phones look distinctively different may fight with different strategies, e.g., will try to invalidate Apple's patents etc... This case had already shown that tech companies had privately demoed technologies to Apple which shortly turned up in Apple's patents a few months later.
