I actially meant "which cannot be applied to an antivirus or to a spellchecker"

An interesting development. I have looked at Claim 1 of 5,946,647, which is supposed to describe a search for phone numbers. Can anyone explain me, if there is anything in this claim, which cannot be applied to an antivirus. I had used both well before 1996, the priority date of '646.

From what I see in a posting at Linkedin it is the dependent Claim 9 that Apple believes is violated by Samsung. Which cannot hold if Claim 1 doesn't.

What is actually the trick?

The previous Apple jury also largely discounted highly paid experts, even though I thought most quite good...until they played silly and transparent obfuscation games under cross examination!

@GSMD, Far from being immune, academia is the main source of these experts.

I too automatically distrust grossly overpaid "expert witnesses." But more on point, all Samsung has to show is that they did not copy Apple's algorithm, for extracting phone numbers from text. This sort of pattern recognition software is pervasive nowadays, and has been for some time.

And reading Steve Jobs' e-mail, it seems painfully obvious that Apple was copying basic features offered by its competition extensively as well.

No sensible, civilized person likes these "holy wars." That was Steve Jobs' term. Apple should wake up and look at the longer term. This is damaging to their reputation, except perhaps for the most hopeless of Apple Faithful.

The patent was applied for in 1996 so Apple may have gotten a jump on Skype and etc.

@tpfj: I have a problem with grossly overpaid (that was a serious chunk of change!) experts providing unbiased views on patents.

So do I ... unless someone were to offer me an obscene amount of money to do so, in which case I'd make an exception LOL

I have a problem with grossly overpaid (that was a serious chunk of change!) experts providing unbiased views on patents. Take patent 6,847,959. I'm pretty sure my Nokia brick phone and Sony Ericsson slide phone from a decade ago could extract phone numbers out of text messages people sent me. Skype has been doing the same with a browser plugin for a while now.

Is this mixing of open source, proprietary Google and proprietary home grown code common? Tricky?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
