..for ripping off the lock screen?
Have you played with the camera unlock feature on iOS 5? Tap the camera icon and the lock screen bounces, just like on WP7. Further more, you swipe up and it opens up straight to the camera. I hope Microsoft has patented this and is going to sue the pants off of apple for it..but I doubt it.

It does not bounce, you slide it up but it does not bounce. Furthermore, I really don't think MS wants to go down that road with the company behind touch screen smartphones as we know them today. Especially when they have all kinds of patents in play as well as all the money in the world behind them.

As for Apple, I have seen this change too, though I believe they have a cross-licensing agreement, and thus neither will sue one another.

In regards to the iPhone. I think you need to look again, it actually does bounce in the new version of iOS.
About 4:40mins in, you'll see where the bounce is now within iOS 5.1. Admitably, I don't think it's totally similar and the iPhone does its bounce at a faster speed.

stupid paten wars , i freaking hate that,
if your a top 5 Electronique manifacture you should not be allowed to paten anything.
why you think apple did so good for so long with the *multy touch * paten , every other company had to re-invent multy touch hence comming out with it 2 years later...

So let me get this straight, if you "tap" the camera button (which does nothing to activate the camera or anything else for that matter) it raises a quarter of an inch and slightly "bounces" back down that is ripping off WP?
If you swipe the screen as required to access the camera app and you swipe slightly and let it go back down does it bounce like WP? No it does not, it slams back down.

I don't think Microsoft or Apple, will get into a spat about this. WP7 has some iOS functionality, and I'm sure iOS will get more from WP7 too in the future.

I could be mistaken but Microsoft would never truely sue Apple for anything cause along with sharing acouple of Patents, from a tv report I saw a few years ago ALOT of Apple Tech Pre-Iphone AND Post-IPhone is built from Microsoft Patents filed in the 80's, 90's, etc. And they get a HUGE check every year from it, so why stop the Money Train. The reason that isn't mentioned so much cause MS isn't as stuck-up as Apple. But knowing that makes it funny when Apple fans bashes Microsoft LoL :D :D :D. And again I could be mistaken cause that report I saw was at least 4 years ago, plus the Fruity People probably had it buried LoL.

Yeah, I don't think MS is going to sue Apple. Apple MIGHT try to sue MS but not any time soon. Microsoft has been making Smartphones a lot longer than Apple. They also file more patents and have a MUCH larger patent portfolio. Being in similar businesses there's a real good chance that MS could find something that Apple infringes on. Apple has a lot more to lose in that sort of skirmish than Microsoft does. They aren't going to risk it unless WP starts eating their marketshare.
