"literally" there's that word again...
#139 to #133 - sittingwhale (11/14/2012) [-]
well it legitimately applies in this scenario because steve jobs is dead... and the post makes fun of steve jobs. so, yea. literally beating a dead "horse".

I am literally commenting back with this post. No one is actually in their backyard beating a dead horse. so it is not literal
User avatar #169 to #152 - hellbentcrusade (11/14/2012) [-]
Why would I be butthurt? Somebody corrected you and you said it still applies even though it doesn't.
#166 to #152 - sittingwhale (11/14/2012) [-]
to stop your butthurt, would you be satisfied if i corrected myself with "figuratively"?...
User avatar #143 to #139 - goodguygary ONLINE (11/14/2012) [-]
he is not hitting the corpse in any sense, so it is not literally beating a dead horse (also note that steve jobs was not a horse in any sense)

Are you ******* kidding me! This is ******** ! Literally every technology is stolen at some point! That's how the industry works, someone has a good idea and implements it then someone takes that and does it slightly differently.


it's seriously getting old

If your statement is true then technology as we know it would not exist.

There's a need because apple keeps suing everyone claiming that they invented everything. It's utter ******** .
User avatar #151 to #146 - muzzology (11/14/2012) [-]
Everyone sues everyone, you only hear about Apple because people actually care about them. I mean could you name the CEO of Samsung, HTC or Nokia without googling it? Precisely.
User avatar #161 to #151 - theaceofthespade (11/14/2012) [-]
But you're wrong... Everyone is not just constantly suing everyone over patents, because it's utter BS. That's actually the reason that it's making the news, because this is one of the first time patent law has ever been used the way it's being used. Try and find a single other example of one of the other companies suing each other like this; it hasn't happened.

How about the company that sued them all over the way in which they transfer data back in july 2011 or when the beatles record label sued apple over the name after they ventured into iTunes?
User avatar #177 to #167 - theaceofthespade (11/14/2012) [-]
For someone who was complainging about others abilities to name specifics, you're staying pretty vague :3

The beatles suit was pretty well justified. When apple first started, apple corp sued them, saying that it was trademark infringement. When they settled, the legal conditions were that apple could keep their name, as long as they never got into the music business. Then, when apple broke that agreement, they got sued again. Simple as that.

I assume you're talking about Nokia vs. Apple. In that case, they sued eachother (nokia started it), over an actual, legitimate technology patent (physical hardware, an actual way of doing something that Nokia researched, developed, and patented themselves).
The Nokia suit kind of illustrates the frustrating point; apple blatantly stole their various technologies (and many more that they were never sued for), and then defended viciously their ability to do it. Then, they turn around, and launch unprecedentedly huge lawsuits trying to destroy android for what they claim is the same thing, even though it's not (look into the things they're claiming, it's ridiculous. Slide to unlock is actually one of the ones they sued over).

The transfer of data was GPNE corp vs. Nokia, RIM, Amazon and Sony.

They did step into music although to be fair selling music to consumers is very different than recording and marketing music.

When Apple stops bitching about patents, I'll stop bitching about Apple.

I will do this with any company that uses patents to eliminate competition and shackles innovation.

The point behind this post is a throwback in apples face because of how often they bitch about stolen products. It is just meant to point out hypocrisy.
User avatar #112 - bosskiss (11/14/2012) [-]
isn't it about having a patent on something?

i mean if apple has invented slide to unlock and placed a patent on it.
and they found it unnecessary to use it on there phones. and instead they give permission to Sony to use it for a small fee. they still are the ones to invented it.

it isn't about using something for the first time it's about inventing something for the first time.
User avatar #150 to #112 - theaceofthespade (11/14/2012) [-]
That's not the case though - Apple didn't give people permission to use those things - those groups actually did invent those things independent of apple, and then apple used them.
User avatar #178 to #150 - bosskiss (11/14/2012) [-]
well i talked about slide to unlock as example of patents


i can agree with you about the apple design and Notification bar

Takes all the best features of past phones to make one really good phone. Yep Steve Jobs is an idiot alright.
User avatar #101 to #88 - selfjell (11/14/2012) [-]
The problem is that he accuses other companies of stealing the features apple has on their phones. And yet apple took all their ideas from other companies. Steve Jobs: The biggest hypocrite to walk the earth...

I only got an IPhone because I like how the home screen is set up. It's easier for me to understand then an Android.

Android is just as easy to understand as an Iphone unless you do actually have some type of learning disability...
User avatar #186 to #109 - sparkofinsanity (11/15/2012) [-]
Well, you must have misunderstood me. I didn't mean it was too complicated for me to understand, it's just I like the Iphone layout better. Don't really know why, maybe because I used to have an Ipod.
User avatar #189 to #186 - CrashingSea (11/15/2012) [-]
That sounds about right... it's just what you're used to, but I must say it's pretty much the exact same, except you can lay it out however you want in whatever way you want.

the thing is that every phone at the time had like one good feature and otherwise sucked, so apple took the best features they could find from all phones and added some of their own ideas to make the iPhone. The smartphones we have wouldn't have been as smart right now if it were not for apple. and if u think that android would be around without apple think again because the guy that invented android worked on the iOS team before he switched company to google.

I do admire apple for making smart use of the dumbed down society. Steve Jobs was a great marketer and I complement him for making so much money with so little effort.
