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.

Oh no, we can't have that now! Technology and politics can never collide.


Of course, technology and politics can (and often do) collide, but the only purpose that these kinds of articles serve on technical sites like this is to shove the 'software patents are broken' mantra down people's throats. Even if you believe this is true (and probably most of us do), I think there are already numerous examples of lawsuits already to illustrate the point, without having to report on a new one every other day. It just gets old.
