Legal "Comparing Samsung's flagship products before and after release of the iPhone & iPad, and how Apple's intellectual property infringement claims hold up." A terrible visual guide that ignores not only Samsung's own pre-iPhone designs, but also - and worse yet - the thirty-odd years of mobile computing that preceded the iPhone. Typical of today's technology world: a complete and utter lack of historical sense. Worse yet are the claims about icons: only the phone icon is similar, but Apple did not invent the green phone icon. This is a remnant of virtually all earlier phones which use a green phone icon for initiate/answer call, and a red phone icon for terminate/reject call. Claiming this deserves IP protection is beyond ridiculous, and shows just how low Apple is willing to go.

No, I mean don't state your own opinion as being fact.

Then quote each opinion of Thom and rebut it with facts.

_My_ opinion: You should not be able to use patents to protect yourself from competing products. I can not remember a time when Apple had to protect an invention they patented. Therefore I think all lawsuits Apple has started are anti competitive and just pure evil.
