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.

Samsung has filed a number of offensive patents suits against Apple.

(Look up the last big debate we had about this where you started the article saying that Samsung was 'going on the offensive' against Apple.)

Generally I think Apple's suits are both lame and unnecessary. The iPad design suits are especially lame because, really, the physical design of the iPad is hardly so unique as to be patentable.

These suits on the cases have much more merit. If you look at the cases their basically a blatant ripoff. No rational person can argue that.
