Neither Apple nor HTC is patent-trolling here. Put down the Kool-Aid and learn some facts. Shame on Subby for submitting this, and especially shame on whoever gave this a greenlight. Assuming you're two different people.

It really is amazing that seemingly otherwise intelligent people don't seem to know what a "patent troll" is and don't seem to understand that you don't need to come up with an entirely new concept in order to avoid patents.

The haters will react with venom if Apple releases any technology that relies on zeros and ones for data transmission.

Seems fair, since Apple react that way if someone else dares make something rectangular with rounded edges....

It's pretty obvious that the common use of "Patent Troll" stopped meaning NPE a while ago and now pretty much means anyone who uses the patent system in a highly public manner to thwart competition, especially if the specific patents in question are something the public has come to accept as ubiquitous. For what it's worth, you're right. However, that's not going to stop the definition from morphing and leaving you shaking your fist going, "but that's not what it means!"

Task: Transfer pictures off digital camera onto phone....



You could even plug the camera right into the phone, as it supports USB OTG.

/provided you have the little OTG adapter

HeartBurnKid: Great Porn Dragon: SacriliciousBeerSwiller: imasig: Wife = iPhone 4s
Me = Samsung Galaxy S2

Task: Transfer pictures off digital camera onto phone.

Me:

1.) Plug in camera and phone to PC.
2.) Drag pictures onto phone.

Alternatively, set images to upload to Google+ automatically via wifi (it will auto-upload when it detects the connection). Then, just pull them all down from there. No plugging-in-the-phone necessary.

Alternative the third:

1) Install file browser with SMB client (ES File Explorer being a good free option, File Expert being another, there are lots and lots of others) from Google Market.
2) Set up network share on PC, or if you have network storage, store your pics on the network drive.
3) Grab pics from network share and copy them to Android picture directory, easy peasy.

Alternative the fourth:

1) Upload pics to Picasa account or Flickr account via computer or (assuming sufficiently advanced camera) from camera itself.
2) Download to Android device. :3

Alternative the fifth (difficulty: requires web hosting with FTP server):

1) Set up private FTP uploading account (if you run your own website), install WinSCP for Windows or your choice of FTP program for other operating systems.
2) Upload pics to website or FTP site you operate.
3) Download via browser in Android, or (more properly for FTP) nice file browser like ES File Explorer or Astro or File Expert with FTP client capability.

Seriously, the mere acts of getting stuff on and off an Android device to a PC (and vice versa) are FAR less of a major PITA than with an iDevice, and this is even counting the "minimal device config required" stuff like "pulling stuff off a network share" and "putting stuff up on FTP site and then downloading from Android".

Alternative the sixth:
1) Install Samba on your phone
2) Connect to your phone's folder from your computer
3) Copy away


Damn you for raising my hopes, samba needs a rooted phone.
