Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

I don't know what I can say that I haven't already said when covering these countless lawsuits. I just don't care anymore. Screw the patent system. It's broken, and it will remain broken as long as companies have more clout with lawmakers than the people do.

So, have you finally come 'round to my way of thinking about this?

Greedy companies are suing other greedy companies, so what else is new? Enough with the f**king patent lawsuit articles already. As I said before, these kinds of articles are designed to do nothing but turn technical sites into political soapboxes.
