Legal "The widely anticipated two-day meeting between chief executives of Samsung and Apple yielded no agreement between the parties mired in a hot legal dispute over copyright infringements." Why end fruitless litigation and spend that money on improving products or, I don't know, charity, when you could throw money at lawyers instead, to the benefit of absolutely no one? These lawsuits are Jobs' blemish on the company, but Apple can't back out now for fear of losing face, even though Cook has indicated he really wants to. Petty.

A lot of the Steve Jobs hatred of Android stemmed from the 80's and the percieved rip off of Microsoft Windows from the Apple Mac, i don't think SJ ever got over this.

Personally along with everyone else i think it's stupid to try and patent ideas such as these, if it wasn't for Volvo we wouldn't have the seat belt in every car and if it wasn't for Mercedes Benz we wouldn't have anti-lock brakes. The key is not to invent something and then rest on your laurels, as indeed steve jobs said you have to skate to where the puck will be not to where it is.
