    The Apple v. Samsung patent war that will seemingly never end has taken another turn today, as Apple is asking the court to add newer Samsung Galaxy hardware, including the Galaxy S III, Verizon Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1 to its complaint against the Galaxy Nexus and other related devices. If you thought updated software and designs would keep these newer smartphones and tablets out of the fight -- you were wrong. Just to help you keep things straight, remember this is a separate case from the one that ended exactly a week ago with a decision in Apple's favor to the tune of more than $1 billion in damages.

    At issue here are eight of Apple's utility patents that it says Samsung has infringed upon. The headliner patents at issue are '721 which covers slide to unlock, and '604, which could apply to the universal search feature Samsung has been pulling from its phones recently. Another familiar entry is the '647 patent Apple slapped HTC with in 2010, which has a vague description but applies to clicking on a phone number in an email, for example, to call it. You can read the details on each and every one in the PDF linked below, we'll be doing... anything else.

    Seems like Apple feels threatened. They are making a mountain out of molehill over these senseless claims. :thinking:

    Apple is getting greedy and I think we all know what happens when you get too greedy?

    In regards to "clicking on a phone number in an email, for example, to call it" like WTF? Are you fucking kidding me? I could do that on my Sony Ericsson C905.

    Apple will go down, it's only a matter of time.

    By the way HTC should stand up and sue those fuckers at Apple. I'm sure there must be something they could sue them for.

    LOL at "Google thought to be next because of competitive Android software", Apple don't dare start with Google.

    When they feel threatened by seeing samsung sIII gaining more marketshare they started claiming patents. Apple this is a nice way to claim marketshare.

    Lol looks like this "publicity" isn't helping them at all.
