Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

That is the very definition of marketing(with distribution part cut-out).


Its the definition of good product design. It all starts with the product.


Are you saying that if Netscape had a patent on a browser, then we all would bask in the joys of innovation by Netscape for the next 20 years? (PS: Irony is, iPod is the IE of the PMP market)


I'm saying that if NetScape would have been around, the internet would not have been the stagnant place dominated with a browser that didn't get any noteworthy updates in a decade.


Thus, iPhone revolutionised the market. But even thinking that it's their market, because they changed it is ridiculous.


See my above post on humans.



Sure... It's not even the fighting, it's the reason for the fight and overwhelming sense of entitlement. The me-too part of Android was the finger oriented touch.


If you had followed the Apple versus Samsung case, you'd know they are suing Samsung for way more than that.
