You either misunderstand or misrepresent what Apple has patented there. They haven't patented a method to bounce a display. They patented a method to give feedback when a scrolling operation reaches the end in a way that doesn't obstruct the display and is obvious for the user to understand. Samsung is free to bounce whatever they want on their phones and tablets, as long as it isn't for giving feedback to the user that they scrolled to the end of the scroll area.
Likewise, apple is free to not copy google's innovations, namely voice prompts for siri. *chomps on popcorn*
Hmm, so just because Apple are ahead of the competition, you think they shouldn't (attempt) to stop other people copying them...?
Apple compete by researching and designing their own products. They just want others to do the same.
And if you are going to let a companies actions to protect its research and development stop you purchasing a new Macbook Pro (and iPad?), then thats your call. Just don't pretend is for "righteous" reasons.
So will Apple reimburse google after copying android vertical notifications?
Please list with citations what apple has stolen.
If you start with the GUI and the mouse or even mention Xerox you are wrong
Vertical notifications, stolen from Android?
