Samsung and google teaming up against apple

I just do not see this going as google and samsung may want. I mean if they had this in their pocket the whole time, you would think they would have used it already. If google plans on using the FRAND 3G patent, they will probably get slapped with patent abuse and lose the patents. The FTC are already investigating them for as much.

 

Plus, last time google tried to partner up(HTC), it got thrown out of court.

 

I do not think this will go as Fandroids are hoping it will go.

The last time Google did not own Motorola and its treasure chest of 15k patents.

yes they did.

It got thrown out. And as I said before, Google's main weapon are the FRAND patents that motorola owns for 3G, wifi, etc. Those are patents for standards. They have to license them using fair and non discriminatory terms. And they are the same patents that they have been trying to use again Microsoft and Apple, which are now being investigated by the FTC for patent abuse.

 

As I said, This is not the amazing team up fandroids think it is. it is not like captain planet, and their powers combined are not going to change it. If a patent failed when HTC tried, it will not magically work when samsung uses it.

 

edit: Let me add that I hope I am wrong, because I am sick of these "Patent Wars". Also, I agree with google, that we need to move on to the Innovation Wars.

the patents got thrown out for the way in which they were transferred to htc. it was a legal technicality and did not mean that the patents were useless or invalid. there are specific rules about how someone (htc) can use patents they license / borrow from another entity (google).

 

let's hope google learned from their mistake.

Exactly. Also this time Apple is also going directly after Google and not just an OEM.

    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
    • I believe one of the merger conditions was they had offer to sell it to Dish.  EDIT: Oops didn't see that this had already been answered.
