Hoping for a Patent Bloodbath XD
« on: October 04, 2011, 12:01:36 PM »
I'm hoping for a patent bloodbath in the Apple v. Samsung dispute:

Apple Inc rejected an offer from Samsung Electronics Co to settle their tablet computer dispute in Australia, possibly killing off the commercial viability of the South Korean firm’s new Galaxy tablet in that market.

Samsung is a major supplier for Apple, and I'd love to see them flex some muscle and decapitate Apple. Oh... how sweet that would be~! =P

Thanks for the giggle.  :)

+1.

And if the whole current Amerikan patent system would go belly-up in the fight, that'd be icing on the cake.

We can dream, can't we? They haven't taken that away from us yet.

The forthcoming Apple dream tax is a core strategy!

Future iDevices will connect through a neural interface. The upside is the device will be thin and brushed metal....

Yes indeed. See Patent#24536487756453839 - On a method for generating eidetic mental images through the use of unconscious and semi-conscious non-ambulatory rest periods.

Samsung Seeks Sales Ban on Apple IPhone 4S in France, Italy

Samsung Electronics Co. will seek to ban Apple Inc.’s iPhone 4S in France and Italy on patent- infringement claims, escalating the dispute between the world’s two biggest makers of smartphones and tablets.

Samsung will file motions with courts in Paris and Milan seeking the ban, each citing two patent infringements on wireless telecommunications technology, the Suwon, South Korea- based company said in an e-mailed statement today. Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S in Cupertino, California yesterday and aims to start sales later this month.

Woohoo~! ;D

What would really rock, is a court order for a recall of all phones and Apple being forced to compensate customers. Muahahahaha~!

I would piss my pants laughing. Really. That would be uncontrollable laughter! Losing control of all bodily functions. Drop a dookie in my droors funny!

Design patent? Lame. Patent on core mobile phone tech? Well, not as lame. :P

Go Samsung~! ;D :P

BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD~! I CAN SMELL IT IN THE WATERS~! ;D :P

I'd like to hope the fracas will get so ridiculous that the international legal system will rise up in revulsion and get the whole stupid IP/patent situation resolved once and for all.

Unfortunately, the dream of "a war to end all wars" only leads to bigger and worse conflicts down the road. At least if human history is anything to go by.

One thing for certain. This is going to get a whole lot worse before there's even the slimmest of chances it will get better.
 :(

That's what I am hoping for. The bloodier and more idiotic and higher profile, the better. Eventually people will get fed up.

Seeing fanbois get their knickers in a knot when they can't get their hands on the latest iDevice just because their precious, innovative, company used someone else's tech would make me so happy.

That makes two of us. Anything to piss hipsters off makes me a happy camper.

Maybe we should come up with an official Battle-of-the-Century logo for this fight. That way it'll be easier to know where to go place bets on the outcome as the game plays out.

I'm thinking two cannibals eating eachother alive ... Sound good?

Of course! The zombies would make perfect analogs for the mindless persuite of branded dogma. Cannibals are far to sensible for that kind of silliness.


My apology to cannibals for improper stereotyping.

A U.S. judge said that Samsung Electronic's Galaxy tablets infringe Apple Inc's iPad patents, but added that Apple has a problem establishing the validity of its patents in the latest courtroom face-off between the technology giants.

Wow~!

Has a drop of sanity tainted the courts?

Will modern society devolve into rational actors?

Have we witnessed the end of the universe as we know it?

Stay tuned~! More to come in this exciting zombie cage match~! ;D
