    The idea of software patents is a farce, especially when it's mostly covered by copyright laws anyway.

    Sounds to me like Apple can't hit Google directly, so is trying to hit them indirectly.

    All counter-productive. Apple don't particularly have a leg to stand on with this one. They're being sued by Nokia for various infringements, in turn a majority of other manufacturers licence that technology from Nokia - and some of them are being sued by Apple for... ouch, my head is starting to hurt

    Sick of it all really. Apple need to grow up a bit, it's clear they're getting a bit antsy with all the competition coming up. If they want to have a go at someone, they should probably try with those chinese folks making the 20 knock-offs which are better than the real thing.
