Legal I'm guessing Apple is getting desperate, since its software patent lawsuits aren't doing particularly well. Moving on from software and design patents, the company is now suing Samsung over... Patents for mobile phone and tablet cases (more at The Verge). I think Apple has more offensive lawsuits than products now, so technically, "patent maker" is more accurate than "gadget maker" or "device maker". Fun times.

Thanks for this news Thom.
Apple filing all these trivial lawsuits against its competitors is a sad development. Ever since Apple has started suing people over trivial software-patents that should have never been filed and should have never been granted We have started to convince our customers not to purchase Apple products. We are also now actively working to migrate our customers away from Apple products. We can no longer in good faith recommend products from a company that uses such egregious tactics to abuse the marketplace.
