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.

Quite simple. That would require people pull their heads out of the ground and admit that all the negative comments they've made about company X and be applied to the companies they seem to love so much too.

Call me when Samsung files an offensive software patent lawsuit.

That's the difference. Apple's main source of income is threatened, and instead of competing, they litigate using software patents. Samsung, HTC, and so on are *defending* themselves.

This isn't rocket science.
