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.

Besides tablet computers colored black and shaped rectangular have been around for a very long time as people have come up with examples like a children's slate, an embedded monitor in a table in 2001 A Space Odyssey and a piece of wood in Star Trek.


...and you're conveniently forgetting the Knight Ridder and CrunchPad.

But hey, the CrunchPad didn't sell very well, so it doesn't count. Only ideas stolen from products successful products count, right?
