Legal "In its case against Samsung Electronics in the Netherlands, Apple is demanding an extensive ban on all Galaxy series smartphones and tablets, including a complete recall of stock by European distributors and resellers. Apple's complaint against Samsung in The Hague district court is much more comprehensive than previously thought. It's not only broader in its legal scope than a separate, ongoing Apple complaint against Samsung in Germany, but an injunction could have a 'huge impact' on the entire European market for smartphones and tablets, according to Alastair Edwards, principal analyst at Canalys." That's how far Apple is willing to go. They are willing to screw over countless resellers - some big, some small, one-shop affairs - because they don't like competition. I wonder how the Grubers of this world are going to spin this one. Hey Steve, I've got another extremely successful Android phone maker for you to sue.

How can Apple steal stuff that hasn't been made yet? Star Trek is set way in to the future. Steve himself said Apple can't break the laws of physics, yet.

Except Star Trek is not something from the future. It's a modern-day fiction show. Which means that modern-day designers worked on it, and came up with the tablet design.

(And in a better way, I think, since ST's tablets can apparently be thrown around without breaking. Metal and glass sure are aesthetically pleasing, but not such a good idea on a device that you carry around... Oh, well, guess someone will someday figure out that plastic is not only suitable for cheap stuff)
