    The big 2.5 billion dollar case result is about to be announced, who are you pulling for?





    Personally, I have a Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note phone.

    They were already forced to pull the Galaxy Tab 2 from California in the beginning of summer, not sure about the rest of the country.

    Apple tried to stop all the HTC One X's at the docks early this summer for patent violations.

    I hear that there is a huge lawsuit with Apple and Motorola/GOOGLE.....now that should be a good one! Have at'em GOOGLE!

    Competition is one thing (and good), stealing to compete is a completely different animal.

    Having a court rule that Apple's technology was stolen leaves little room for Apple detractors to whine, but yet they still do. :scratch:

    ...lg makes a perfectly fine android phone. i have an ipod and an ipad and i like them both but apple could have avoided this if they would have manufactured at home finding these innovations on the assembly floor in america instead of a tech in china discovering improvements or how to avoid glitches. i hope its a lesson learned for greedy fucks. i dont begrudge anybody for being a success but if you make 628 billion dollars seems you could manufacturer at home.

    if they tried to make it here nobody would be able to afford it. we cannot make that stuff (or anything) here anymore because we abandoned the manufacturing infrastructure 20+ years ago. china is a starving population willing to work at slave wages just to have a job, squeezed into little cities that now specialize in supporting each others' manufacturing needs much in the same way the departments of a corporation support the overall business. we simply cannot do that anymore.

    it is a shame really, we have an abandoned city (detroit) with empty buildings and houses, and if apple wasn't so profit hungry they could make a deal with the gov to move manufacturing here and pay people a minimal living wage and let them buy up those properties for pennies on the dollar to attempt to revitalize the area, hell we give away BILLIONS to foreign countries that don't even like us so why can't we just give a few dollars to our corporations to handcuff them into keeping the work here.....crazy idea but hell.....

    Honestly I think it could be done in this country. Go far enough south with the right government incentives and Apple willing to take a small hit on profit. I think all of those things combined and there could be a made in the USA sticker on apple products.

    NO WAY!!!

    Right now Obama has the country all fired up against profitable people/companies/corps......they are evil didn't you know that!!!

    There is NO WAY a a UNION (heavy democrat) city like Detroit would allow such a deal WITHOUT some sort of Collective Bargining Agreement and union workers.


    Haven't you seen the Obama ads....."the republicans want to give large corps TAX BREAKS! They want to help their rich friends and buddies....." Well Apple like other American companies are like ok...if you want to have the HIGHEST CORP TAX RATE in the industrial world here in America we will continue to build in China.


    So Detroit and cities in the like will continue to be screwed......but hey Obama is sticking it to the large corps.

    But why do I feel like the middle class is getting fucked the most.....:dontknow:



    That AIDS ridden Steve Jobs did a great job convincing America to pay MORE for less, and (like Howard) Apple invented/patened everything.....even windows......coughXEROXIBMcough....

    Great point......BUT

    Remember recently what happened to Boeing. They wanted to expand manufacturing IN THE US.....but wanted to go to the corp friendly Southeast. Holy shit the Unions at Boeing were pissed! Obama came in and tried to put the kibash on the move.....it became a huge mess!!!!

    Why would a company want to go thru all that!
