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.

1. Good ideas propogating should be considerd a good thing. Seriously.

2. No doubt that Samsung copied Apple. (Just like Apple have copied others)

3. This is just another in a long string of events that confirm to me not only the stupidity of patents, but the stupidity of intellectual property.

4. Since I do not choose the devices I use based on politics, but on what I like, I'm going to chug happily along with my iPhone. (If you are going to make ethical considerations when choosing smart phones... there are few practical choices.)
