The ironic thing is that by posting the Apple legal email the link to the site where the actual files are hosted is still available. Even better is that the www.macnewsworld.com story that is inaccurate in so many ways also manages to reproduce the link to a certain site where the actual files are still available. Bit of an own goal from the Apple legal team I think....

careful... that looks like a windows mobile table to me!!! :)

(slightly off-topic observation):

also, isn't it amazing, even when we're talking about how apple's being moneygrabbing and bullying and microsoft's not, people still say 'M$' - yes, it's a dollar sign, we get it. i'm sure i wouldn't get far calling apple 'crapple' each and every single time i type it anywhere. i'm fairly sure the company is called microsoft, and MS for short.

or shall we start $ymbian? Ni$san? Ma€?

Apple's only real claim to ownership of this design, is that the icons were their artwork.

If apple are claiming to have invented, or have the ownership of a grid of icons which launches computer programs then this is going to be an interesting battle, even on a mobile phone this has been done before, let alone on real computers.

I am sure that apple cannot be claiming copyright on a computer or phone having a black backround to its screen.

So, I would say that you can have a home screen on your win mobile which has a black background and a grid of icons which launches programs, as long as the icons are not apple's, or bear too much resemblance to them.

Certainly not on a phone - I'm sure that wonderful companies that gave this ability to WM like SPB, SBSH - and even smaller ones like cLaunch etc would definitely have a claim to the look and functionality of things like that. The difference is, companies/people like this are open to their work being changed/improved with skins/icons etc. Apple typically gets too big for it's boots claiming things like "it invented the mobile phone with a touchscreen" and crap like that. To sum up, Apple are full of s**t (censored to avoid any "Apple Legal" issues).

I own a 40Gb iRiver MP3 player and wouldn't swap it for an iPod under pain of death...never mind swapping my WM phone for something that is all style and no substance.

Swampie... we weren't distributing anything, we were just reporting on something from another site (how many times do I need to say that?)

P


I thought the Modaco news post included a copy (or a displayed image linked to) a screenshot of the copyrighted images.

http://en.wikipedia....pyrighted_works

"If you know that an external Web site is carrying a work in violation of the creator's copyright, do not link to that copy of the work. Knowingly and intentionally directing others to a site that violates copyright has been considered a form of contributory infringement in the United States (Intellectual Reserve v. Utah Lighthouse Ministry)."

This to me would fit into Modaco's rules on piracy:

http://www.modaco.co...n...p;f=89&id=1

"Posts will be censored by myself or my moderation team if:

- They link to other illegal content or sites hosting them (eg Smartphone ROMs, Illegal Smartphone games etc. etc.)

Of course, there are those that argue homescreens / ringtones are a grey area - this is true - but I have made an executive decision to let these be posted, and should the copyright owner take issue, they can contact me and I will deal with the offending post immediately."

It sounds like this would fit in with it being a link to another site providing the copyrighted images, and the copyright owner contacting you to request the post be removed.

As I said though - it does seem very heavy handed by Apple.

Apple have truly jumped the shark on this one. Even the slashdot apple fanbois are being outnumbered by the "this is not cool" types. Believe me, that is a first for slashdot IMHO.

Hell, I've been active in those discussions and normally it's a huge karma (moderation) hit when you defend windows mobile. Right now I'd say over those threads my posts have been non-moderated, which is good as anything said pro-MS or anti-apple is normally committing suicide over there. I've managed to say both in the same post and get general agreement.

Apple, you messed up big this time. Even your astroturfers cannot save you now. You'd better watch out; like google your company depends upon the perception of "cool". Lose that and you are worthless. I can see myself writing an obituary article on Apple in a few years about how they had it all and lost it, much like Yahoo did.

Well as you know I do truly love a certain nameless recently-previewed GUI, and as youve seen earlier I set about reproducing it on my X50v.
Using Wisbar Advance Desktop I was finally able to get it all tricked out in VGA(480x360) and TrueVGA (640x480), portrait and landscape both.
