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.

Like which?

Apple started this lowlife software patent war. Samsung, HTC, etc. are defending themselves. You know this, yet as the Apple fanboy that you are, your brain simply can't process that your favourite pet company is engaging in patent troll behaviour. As such, your brain is in a state of cognitive dissonance. What you are doing now, with trying laughably to make a villain out of a company trying to defend itself, is your brain trying to cope with integrating the new information (Apple is a patent troll) into your existing beliefs (Apple is all that is good in the world).

This is all so incredibly entertaining.
