Legal Well well well well well, paint me red and call me a girly scout. I've been saying for months now that there's much more collaboration between Apple and Microsoft than their respective fanboys want to believe, especially when it comes to fighting Google and Android, which both companies partly do via patent suits. More evidence for this has emerged today. Remember CPTN Holdings, the consortium led by Microsoft which bought that bundle of patents from Novell? Which other companies are part of this consortium? EMC. Oracle. Apple.

There was nothing available in the market remotely like the iPhone before Apple created it. With that single phone launch Apple remade the phone industry and redefined what a phone could do. Every smart phone since has just been trying (and failing) to catch up. Mostly by copying iPhone.
