Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

Patent 8,074,172 is bad enough but Slide to lock 8,046,721 wtf. Sliding to lock must be something that goes back at least 3 millennia and if it was as old as the wheel that wouldn't surprise me.

This is called innovation? - no its a complete f*cking joke.
