Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

I'm familiar with that article however this isn't a threat to avoid competition. This is payback for Google stealing Apple's IP. (Remember, their CEO was on Apple's board of directors and was privy to Apple's mobile agenda during development thereby prompting Google to build an OS based on the same ideas.

And this is why software patents are stupid. Android didn't steal a single line of code from IOS yet they made a comparable alternative. This shows that the programmers for both OS's were smart enough to make it. IOS is nothing special and any group of competent programmers could write it from scratch without ever seeing an i-device.
