Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

Looks like I have to change my idea of Apple from:

1) Good UI-interfaces for real humans.
2) Mediocre software.
3) Crappy hardware.

Into:
Patent troll.


So absurb, I guess they sue on software patents and design, atleast Nokia have patented real stuff which cost money to develop.

I also guess they see how they can have more patents in the area than Google but be more equal with Microsoft.

Poor acting, Apple suck.
