    Google Has Had Enough: Files Lawsuit To Ban Multiple Apple Products

    Google Has Had Enough: Files Lawsuit To Ban Multiple Apple Products - AndroidPIT

    Google and Motorola are claiming patent infringement for non-standard essential patents. To put it simply, Google-rola has filed a case for a patent that courts cannot legally force companies to license, meaning that if they win this case, Apple could be forced to completely stop using the technology in their devices.

    We don’t have confirmation on exactly which patent (reportedly "wifi related") is in question here, but we do know that Motorola attempted to reach licensing agreements with Apple (since 2010), which Apple apparently refused. Motorola stated that:

    “We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple’s unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers’ innovations”.
    This might not seem like political news, but I can't help but notice how liberal Google and Apple are in their marketing campaigns when it comes to freedom of information. It's their business models after all, so you'd expect them to spoil the public. They don't care how stupid people are when it comes to STEM principles as long as they can make a buck, sabotaging the next generation of engineers just so a few can make it big. They thrive on having a diverse labor supply as well from all over the world.

    I guess some might qualify them as Rockefeller Republican, but it's the same deal. Either way, it's nice seeing them butt heads. I hope this lawsuit drains as much of both company's treasuries as possible.

    No, progressives are not socialists.

    All Motorola has to do is stop selling Apple computer chips, and they'd be **** out of luck.

    All I know is that I hate Apple as a business. I like some of its products, but I cannot stand its attitude.

    Apple stopped using Motorola processors some years ago. The current Macintosh line uses the same Intel chips as high-end PC-type machines.

    It would be nice to give Apple a piece of its own medicine. This patent stuff is out of control.

    Their iPhones use Motorola, but Texas Instruments has a huge contract coming up for them. They will likely get it if it is not already signed under the table.

    And even the products I like aren't worth purchasing if it means that disingenuous POS corporation will make a profit off it, IMO.

    I have friends who always counter my "Apple is ethically corrupt" argument with, "But they fix my stuff so well when it breaks!"...as if a nice repair department makes up for slave labor, theft of service, and other abhorrent practices.

    Nope... they use... Samsung.

    Re: Google Has Had Enough: Files Lawsuit To Ban Multiple Apple Products

    I avoid Apple products as much as possible precisely because I don't care for their attitude and their practices. I especially don't like that buying their product means that I'm "sucked in" to their system and have virtually no options outside what they want me to use.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
