Apple Just when I thought the company I once admired greatly couldn't sink any lower. "Over the last two years, Apple has been engaged in vicious legal battles over smartphone patents, many of which are aimed at squelching (or squeezing money out of) manufacturers of devices running Android. And now, for some reason, it has given valuable patents to a patent troll - which is using them to sue many of the top technology companies in the world."

Apple's never been an angel

What amazes me is that there's always been this fan club for Apple, made up of people who hate evil Microsoft. Yeah, Apple makes lots of neat consumer products. But their corporate behavior has always been like any other company. This became apparent to me back in the 90's, when I couldn't open one of their laptops because of the proprietary screw-heads they use. Closed, closed, closed.
