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.

No you're not. Though, we might be for different reasons: I am still waiting for a valid reason why James Watt's separating of the condensation chamber from the piston in steam engines was patentable, why pharmaceutical molecules extracted from the bark of tropical trees are patentable, why changing the proportion of cement in concrete is a valid basis for a legitimate patent but anything software is not patentable. Maybe that there's been a patent granted for the pad that serves as a brake on strollers. Why are these patentable and software isn't, I haven't been able to figure it out.
