Comment Wrath of Steve Jobs - Part 3 - Samsung got owned (Score 0) 1184

This is good for Apple. The outcome was as expected. I have seen both the phones, the evidence was overwhelming in favor of Apple. Having worked with Patents for many years, Samsung blatantly ripped off of Apple's innovation. Before Apple, we had Microsoft's phones, Blackberries, Nokia etc. It doesn't take a rocket science to figure out - the interface smoothness was innovated by Apple. Remember it is not the work on one company, everyone else before Apple launched had patents. And Apple did was innovate on those existing patents and in the process improved AND/OR created new patents. Look on the bright side, innovation helped change the world. Everyone's lives are easier (or will get complicated - that is another story) - look iPad revolutionized tablets. MSFT has been trying for years, but Apple made the game. I am not a Apple Fanboy, but a person who understands properly on how Patent System Works and how to do Business. Apple win is good for consumers, in the long term - this even helps out to all the developers of the app store. And to people who say it is bad for innovation - you have no damn idea what the hell you are talking about (it is just noise). And scouring the web for blog post and commentary about Apple vs Samsung - this has to be one of the most insightful commentary ever on (this is a damn blog, not spam here) and the rebuttal is amazing - the damn pic. Seriously check out the blog....if not - whateva - your loss

Comment Total lack of leadership - Insert Dilbert Jokes (Score 1) 142

This won't be the case if the people at the top had learned the proper use of leadership. So many companies promise so much, but forget on how to do business in the first place. You can make great things, but do not know how to sell it and cater to the market - then no one would ever care. Only if the CEO read Robin Sharma's leadership book, and Ranak Jones's Rogue's Guide to Acquisition book on how to sell. Oh well, You had a short live OnLive. RIP
