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.

Fucking Star Trek had touch enabled tablet-like devices in TNG, before Newton. We are talking about IDEAS, and trivial ones at that... APPLE and all those litigous bastards are subverting the whole idea of the patent system, which was to protect original ideas and their implementations. Having a screen with items you can touch is part of the natural evolution of technology. We saw those devices in Star Trek, probably in countless other movies before TNG as well...
