Apple, Microsoft-owned Rockstar Consortium sues Samsung and other Android manufacturers

The patent wars shall never end it seems. Reuters reports that the Rockstar Consortium, an organization formed to negotiate licensing for patents acquired from bankrupt Nortel and jointly owned by Apple, Microsoft, BlackBerry, Ericsson, Sony and EMC Corporation, has sued Samsung, Google, and other Android companies for infringing some of the Nortel patents that the consortium bought back in 2011.

Samsung is accused of infringing seven patents related to graphical user interfaces, messaging, and notifications, among other issues. “While we haven’t yet been served with this complaint, we continue to advocate for patent reform that would address the current flood of patent litigation,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement, while Samsung and others are yet to comment officially on the matter.

Apple is a pain in the a__hole. It’s obvious that Apple can’t do that, the notifications on android was invented before apple especially, the drop-down notification window it’s already there since android 1.x
apple start it since iPhone 4s or 4. Hell iPhone didn’t even have
a Bluetooth technology to begin with, they can’t even delete the nude
pictures that the owner took on purpose. Facq! it’s annoying that
Apple make the news that’s everyone start to bad-mouthing android.

If Apple and Microsoft have such an issue with these supposed patent infringements, then they should consider making good products based on these ideas instead of suing everybody doing it better.
