Legal And so, the idiocy in the mobile industry continues. Motorola has just upped the ante in this already ridiculous spider web of lawsuits by suing the pants off Apple. Eighteen patents are involved, most of which seem to be actual hardware patents, but that doesn't make some of them any less obvious (apparently, you can patent the location of your antenna). Anywho, like Nokia, Motorola claims that Apple is unwilling to license Motorola's patents, and as such, suing was the only option.

Interestingly, as broken as the patent system is. It is getting the CSIRO a boatload of money for wireless patents now that the Australian Government has started suing all the major tech companies for violating its patents. My tax dollars at work, bringing more tax dollars back to Australian researchers where it belongs.
