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.

If Samsung made a black rectangular shaped bezel bearing tablet I don't think Apple would have sued them. But they added an iOS clone as its operating system, made adjustments to make it look even more like iOS and put it in a box that looks like an iPad box. At tech fairs they even used the Apple app store logo (amongst others) and now a (family) related company even made covers that look like Apple's iPad 2 ones.


Not that it matters, the iPad still vastly outsells the Samsung clone despite all of that ;)
