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.

[q]None of those is an answer to my question.

I disagree, nobody else had come up with any of them before Apple, despite years and sometimes decades of trying. Apple were clearly doing something different enough to make the difference and therefore that should be patentable and they should have some protection.
