    Finally, this is what I have been saying, they are a fashion house not a tech company.

    I don't get what all of the fuss is about personally. It's not as if other companies "invent" things either. Literally everything that exists in the world today is built upon the ideas and work of others.

    Does this mean Acer would be the equivalent of Primark and LaCie would be Gucci!

    The other companies don't claim in the courts to have invented everything. Certain other companies did actually have decent engineering cred and did really make useful tech like Nokia and Motorola for cell systems, of course these patents for real technologies are the ones Apple tries to devalue in order to push its patents for rounded corners and icons in a grid. HP invented stacks of stuff to do with printing, IBM built entire systems and CPUs along with the BIOS. Intel invented most of Apples current stuff when IBM stopped doing it via the PPC architecture. EFI, Firewire, Lightpeek/thunderbolt, even the MacBook air was an intel reference platform with a few mods. Hell, the Disney corporation has probably made more meaningful contributions and before anyone goes accrediting them to Jobs he was only a single director for a comparatively short period of time.

    Acer would be the equivalent of brand X china made budget clothing, LaCie would be at best department store goods.
