In Perth we have a garage called D&G. Dolce & Gabbana tried to stop them using that name. In the end they backed down when the garage promised not to get involved in the fashion business. Although the Garage also claimed they got a promise from D&G not to enter the automotive repair business :lol:The statement added that it was "unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners".
The only problem will be if Apple win their next law suit which is to ban all these Samsung products from the US.So Samsung copied Apple, meaning they are pretty much the same tablet / phone, but both Samsung tablet and phone is a cheaper, with much cheaper apps and a far better OS.....have Apple thought about this law suit :lol:
I agree with this.This will run & run.
FWIW, I prefer iOS to Android as less personalisation = less for me to malehen up:lol:
Well, if Ford had patented the round steering wheel you might have had a point.I am furious with apple for trying to Fark up their closest competitor with this. The richest company in the world sues its main rival. Its like ford suing toyota for making a car with a round steering wheel. I think this is a massive PR own goal for apple. I will think twice about buynig one of their products again. they charge you a hefty premium for what it basically the apple image/ ethos/ design, but when the competition is getting too hot they are straight into the Law courts. It stinks!
I never heard search bobbins, WiFi Is a trademark not a technology, Apple called their device that implements IEEE 802.11 the Airport, its just a name for a device. There are also plenty of other streaming devices that utilise DNLA.I really hate the way Apple steal other peoples idea's rename them and then make out they invented them.
This has happened with WiFi - Apple called it 'Airport', DNLA they call 'Airplay'. They also state that they were the first phone to use Apps, this is bs as I has a Siemens SX1 years before with a big screen and downloadable apps!
