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.

I really do hate it when people say "yeah, your injustice is annoying, but kids are starving in Africa". Yes, your example is worse, but that doesn't make the former point right either.

There's always going to be examples of people worse off and I really do feel for them, but we should use them as an excuse to be complacent about our own lives (or worse yet, allow our lives to completely fuck up too).

So really, your comment isn't any better than the muppets who fulfil Godwin's law two posts into a serious discussion.
