Why is apple suing everybody? Are they going to sue every man in the country for being named Steve?

If Microsoft had (or still has) any stock in apple, wouldn't they directly benefit from the lawsuits? O_O I do recall that at one point Microsoft gave Apple $150 million back in '97. That would be a substantial percentage in stocks today....Maybe someone's masterminding this?

I started useing Ubuntu when it was version 8.04, it had what was basically an app store.

Ubuntu 8.04 came out: 4/24/2008
The Apple app store came out: 7/10/2008

**demcomments rolled a random image posted in comment #694 at Fuck you Mitt. **

I thought I hated Apple before...

- ****** products
-Overpriced compared to anything else and you're paying for a name
- Itunes
- Sues people because they think they came up with everything first.

Did I mention being overpriced?
Fully loaded Macbook pro? sure... 16-17k

Apple... do the world a favor and die off please.

Similarly, they'll also sue anyone who sells macintosh apples

Seriously? Is this serious? Apple doesn't even own apps... And what should they call it? "Digital Phone Applications Depo"?

This is the internet.

Oh, that make much more sense.

Phew, I thought 12/21/12 came early...

So is apple scared about losing money or are they just being greedy? So many people bought their new crappy phone(and in my opinion got cheated) that it was sold out before it was even ON SALE. What the **** Apple?
#62 to #57 - anonymous (09/29/2012) [-]
greedy ofcourse, why else would they sell mediocre phones at the value of a top notch phone from any other company.
#51 - hockeykicksass (09/28/2012) [-]
seriously im tired of this **** can we post funny stuff and stop bitching about apple

well if its determined that the copyright infringement is causing financial losses for apple then these companies could be forced to remove their products from the market, and if the galaxy s3 gets taken off the market in the US the iphones biggest competitor disappears until samsung releases a new model
User avatar #55 to #53 - robskul (09/29/2012) [-]
but their suing companies that aren't even a threat to them
#56 to #55 - thatonewhitekid (09/29/2012) [-]
samsung is their largest competitor in terms or phones last time i checked, maybe its changed though.
User avatar #59 to #56 - robskul (09/29/2012) [-]
i know samsung is, but i mean companies like this, or that grocery store (because od their name)
#60 to #59 - thatonewhitekid (09/29/2012) [-]
large corporations are ******** , they go to extremes to ensure nobody makes money from their stuff without them getting a cut
User avatar #48 - shiftyscent (09/28/2012) [-]
I wonder how long it'll take until Apple sues the human race, because they have humans in their ads.
User avatar #47 - lulzinmyroflcopter (09/28/2012) [-]
I just want to know, who in apple is deciding who/what to sue for whatever retarded reason? is it the current ceo ?
User avatar #46 - beltway (09/28/2012) [-]
probably doing it for the glory of Steve Jobs.
User avatar #45 - durkadurka (09/28/2012) [-]
Apple is suing as a means of keeping their technology relevant for a bit longer. This probably means they have no new iXYZ to unveil and are basically out of ideas.
#38 - themoe (09/28/2012) [-]
Apple suing a grocery store because their website is simply the letter A but since they're in poland, the URL would be "a.pl" instead of "a.com" and "a.pl" looks like apple so their suing the grocery store. ******* pigs

WOW.

And I thought apple being sue happy was just an exaggerated joke...
#44 to #38 - yunonomynameeh (09/28/2012) [-]
I forgot about this one -it's quite a bit more ridiculous than even this amazon thing. Kind of makes all of those "apple going to sue you for that apple" jokes a little less funny.    
   
It's not like grocery stores and apples are in any way related -what were they thinking?

Their iPhone 5 sold out basically before it even hit shelves. It amazes me how mindless people are these days.

I heard amazon is trying to get into the mobile business. How these co.'s work: they buy up as many patents as possible and perpetually sue each other in order to survive in the market. The patent system is terrible, and its not just apple. All these co.'s are constantly suing in order to survive. Thought this might help.
User avatar #58 to #32 - pukingrainbows (09/29/2012) [-]
Yea, but in that case the companies are using it to prevent other companies from capitalizing on their ideas. Apple is just attacking anything slightly related just to stay in the spotlight when there is absolutely no threat to them.

The question is...

Will the theme song go with the trial ?
