Legal It's no secret to anyone that while Apple sued HTC, the lawsuit is more about Google than HTC itself. Since Android is open source, and owned by no one, it's kind of hard to go after Google itself, and as such, HTC was the prime target, since it is the number one Android smartphone maker. The New York Times has an in-depth article up about the subject, with a whole boatload of quotes from people within the two companies, and it paints a picture of all this being a highly emotional and personal vendetta - especially from Apple's side.

But wasn't it original and kind of "mind-blowing' when it came out? I can't recall another phone at the time that looked as good, had the "touch UI," and was as easy to use.

With the right followers on Twitter, I can make the turd I churned out this morning become mind-blowing.

Looking good is not innovation or special. Heck, there have been countless phones in history that look a million times better than the iPhone (the 8800 is still my favourite - I had one, too).

Touch UI isn't special either. Touch UIs, in fact, are older than god.
