Apparently being able to use a stylus or running Jelly Bean 4.1+ is a new reason for iPeople to believe they can sue. Â Huh, I didn’t think any iProducts utilized stylus’, I could be wrong, but what about the Palm series of products that help popularized the PDA, weren’t they near the forefront of the Smartphone/PDA with a stylus? Â I don’t know, I’m just a humble writer, not a lawyer seeking lawsuits against other companies because my companies market share is dwindling and all innovation has flown out the window. Â But ok, back to frivolity…Apple, who is being counter-sued by Samsung for the iPhone 5 has decided, “hell why not, sounds like a good idea to sue for any Sammy product that is able to use a stylus, or even more general, any Sammy device that is running Jelly Bean…WOW! Â Arguments from Apple lend the idea the lawsuit (revisited) was delayed due to the slow proliferation of JB making its way to the Samsung Devices listed (Galaxy Nexus, Note 10.1) thanks to carriers like Verizon (home of the worlds SLOWEST UPDATES) and Sprint because they take their time updating everything. Â All Jelly Bean devices? Â Â
So, lets get down to the nitty gritty, Samsung is not the purveyor of the Jelly Bean 4.1+ Android OS they only use it, yet any device that runs Jelly Bean is now on the docket for “Infringement”, sounds like a round-a-bout way of taking out their Android-Aggression on someone they won against once so, maybe…again? Â Questions is, why isn’t Apple suing Moto or Google? Â Moto has devices on JB, Google makes Jelly Bean, so why is Samsung being the whipping boy for the iSheep? Â Well, Apple was awarded an outrageous amount in the last go around, so why not try to milk the cow a little more. Â
These are just my thoughts, weigh in below and let us know what you think.
