The -- some of these claims go too far joining us now John.
And editorial director of techno buffalo John I'm thrilled you with us right now because I know you know this stuff.
You know these guys -- point fingers at each other and it's almost like trying to get a patent on air isn't it -- mean this stuff is just out there are now.
Yeah it is getting very aggressive in the tech world patents are becoming extremely valuable and they're being defended.
So we have going on right now actually starting today is apple vs stands -- Which really knows they're viewing as a proxy battle apple vs Google which makes the android operating system that -- and puts on their devices.
It's really it first time we've seen Applebee's -- they're seeing their market share fall actually according IDC the quarter that ended in March.
Apple's market share dropped from sixteen point nine or start from 23% to sixteen point nine -- Samsung.
What 129 to 32 supports and they're going and opposite directions for apple.
So is that what is all about and that you know of the galaxy is selling the phone is out there you see -- more and more apple trying to say that Samsung pilfered.
It's the -- rotate you know how the screen twist -- touch screen.
But that's ever read out how to -- and that.
So and that's probably a much better question.
And whether or not they should have been patented is another are you -- that they were patented and apple does have their rights form.
There are three real big patents opinion and you mentioned a lot of the touch screen and also designed you look at the case I was apple -- the Galaxy -- and actually.
Let me ask you Tracy do you think this is an iPad -- the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
I -- thinking sad.
-- I -- Probably.
So you'd be wrong if this if they Samsung galaxy I have felt that it did go to Dayton if you look at these two next to each other an -- -- -- Galaxy Tab here.
You know there certainly are similarities need to designs.
So whether or not apple has seen a legal grounds -- about you can say well -- -- -- -- with the tablet it's a screen.
Right you know there's there hasn't remained flat.
And I just Samsung China say apple infringed on its three G and it's MP3 playback yet the crazy part to me about -- part first it does it.
Apple use Samsung's products in its in its stuff.
Yes to that's especially if funny part Samsung manufacturers from the processors that are in apple devices that may be trying to move away from that.
-- but there -- Samsung's main inside the component in all of their products there there's a lot at stake here -- Tracy we're looking at between these two companies.
Of the mobile world product and -- 50% of the market share.
So apple wants to block Samsung pretty much all the device that the Galaxy Tab.
The galaxy S three series devices we see on every carrier.
And they're looking for them to pay 2.5 billion dollars in damages and now it's crazy Johnson can you make a -- -- which way do you think this is gonna go.
You know if I think -- apple felt that they had a weak case to be looking for a settlement.
Apple is aggressively pursuing -- between me to believe they feel very strongly about their case regardless of how it plays out though the real losers though.
Artists who have lost their us the consumers out there totally does we have one will be one less choice advice -- to buy -- Samsung Wynn's gonna change ruffled many records their products.
Regardless who wins we lose we that we -- we sit Jack and Jeff techno buffalo thanks for taking the time this -- thought.
