Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Software engineers are very, very highly paid employees. As are other IT professions. Do these clowns really think it's in our country's best interest to force our domestic companies to spend huge amounts of money on RnD so that some Korean company can just copy cat our designs and equally profit?

I don't doubt the need for sensibility in patent law enforcement, but Android is extremely similar to iOS in many respects and mobile Samsung products are total rip offs.

I love Android, but Microsoft and Apple are huge economic motivators that need protection from companies that would try to mooch off of their technology...

BTW I'm typing this from my Galaxy Tab 8.9.
