PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung, the one-liners and jokes flew back and forth. One in particular, by Dan Frakes, has been copied and pasted all over the web, and it goes like this: "When the iPhone debuted, it was widely criticized for having no buttons/keys. Now people think the iPhone's design is 'obvious'." This is a very common trend in this entire debate that saddens me to no end: the iPhone is being compared to simple feature phones, while in fact, it should be compared to its true predecessor: the PDA. PDAs have always done with few buttons.

Well it's very simple. If the copying Apple did is wrong then let those companies Apple copied sue.

Everyone is talking like Apple did all this copying and they shouldn't be able to sue to defend the patents they were legally given??? Or that all this prior is out there and they shouldn't be able sue.

Please let those who have the prior art step up and say what Apple did is a copy.

The prior art Samsung pulled out got laughed at in court. Old PDAs and pictures from the movie 2001 or the Knight Ridder tablet that looks like a nook and not an iPad.

In the end, Apple can be sued like anyone else. If they copied sue them.
