    I do and i will continue to do so, until another product comes out that I prefer

    That's fine as well. As everyone says, the best thing you can do is vote with your wallet. If you dislike their products and/or the way that they do business, don't purchase any of their products. Personally, I like their products and couldn't care less about who they want to sue and why.

    I disagree that I am paying for the logo alone. I understand I am paying a premium whenever i buy an Apple product (my friends won't let it go that i bought an iPhone for £600) as there are other products that are just as good and maybe even better in certain areas however the other products don't appeal to me and the benefits of having iTunes and the Appstore as well as Apple products always having fantastic build quality as well as a nice design they out weight the extra bit of money I spend.

    Again, I disagree. I don't think i'm paying for the logo. I'm paying for the brand behind the logo because i associate them with something worth the money.

    If Apple were to start releasing $#@! and just slapped their logo on it, i wouldn't purchase it. However, Apple continue to make decent products and I think the price is worth it so i continue to buy them.

    in bold, means you have not got a lot of faith in them if its just decent products mate

    they have to be epic for that price or any price over £300

    not sure if they were the first but in my oldest memories of rectangle electronics with round edges, my first walman definitely falls under that category and I remember thinking how cool it was that it didn't look like a box!!

    replace the word decent with whatever positive word you want to swap it with, if I didn't think it would be a good product I would've never bought something from them in the first place however I feel as if they do make quality products so I am comfortable spending money on them

    I hold just as much faith in apple products as I do with products from Sony, Samsung, Asus, LG or any other company. They are just companies, if they being out good products I will buy them. If they bring out $#@!, they shouldn't expect me to buy it on brand power alone.

    The sad thing is millions of people are quite upset about the success Apple are having as of late and result to stupid remarks. Ironically i find it funny that the mindless drones tend to be the ones who jump on the Apple hate wagon spewing their opinions.

    As F34R already pointed out, I do hope you have an issue with the Nexus 7 once the Nexus 10 is released.



    The audacity of a company releasing new products. How DARE they!

    I understand where Apple are coming from. While it is a very petty patent it's understandable, they want to protect their IP and so they should. Lets be honest, Samsung have taken a lot of inspiration from Apple...
    They wee hardly the first though. Neatly all phones were rectangular with rounded edges. I remember LG claimed apple copied the chocolate when the iPhone came out. Not sure what the resolution was.

    LG certainly had a case. Remember the Prada?



    And yes, i do like iTunes, makes getting podcasts directly to my phone very easy. I don't buy music through it because it's only 128k so i mainly use it for podcasts.

    Finally some common sense in here! I swear people are getting dumber by the minute.

    Apple did not give themselves said patent, they were awarded the patent by the respective agency. If anything, go hate on them. Plus Samsung (or any other competitor for that matter) could easily do something similar if they were smart enough.

    This is called 'business' and you'd do the same if you had the chance.

    There is a reason why Apple is as successful as it is. Figure it out.

    Sure, Apple is taking full advantage of a system that is skewed to the largest companies that have the capital to patent and litigate, but doesn't mean they get away without any negative impact.

    Are they playing by the rules, maybe/probably, but the negative image they create for themselves by being bullies is deserved.

    Apple is playing within the legal laws and system structure but its so petty I don't see it worth the hit they are going to take in the public eye.

    They already have the name just use creative marketing like samsung does dissing the iphone all the time...shame on the patent office for approving this ridiculous patent

    Sorry, but this negative image you speak off must be exclusive to hardcore internet forums like this one.

    Otherwise, we wouldn't see so many people buying iPhones over other smartphones or Apple becoming the world's first trillion dollar company. And please don't tell me now that the majority of Apple fans are mindless fools. This pathetic excuse has run its course.

    According to commercial law advertising campaigns that are intentionally mocking competitive products or brands fall under the category of 'unfair competition' and can result in law suits.

    No, this is NOT the way to go.

    My law teacher at university is my source. We examined this very paragraph a few months ago.

    And I was talking about the situation in general without going into specifics.
