Legal "The International Trade Commission voted yesterday to investigate Apple for patent infringement allegations launched by the Google-owned Motorola Mobility. As expected, Motorola is asking for import bans on just about every iOS device, including iPhones, iPods, and iPads. What might be surprising is that Motorola is also asking for a ban on every type of Mac OS X computer, claiming Apple's iMessage technology infringes a Motorola patent." Let's hope all those products get banned. And that all Motorola phones get banned. Let's hope everything gets banned from the US. And yes, I changed Motorola into Google for the headline.

Seriously, these idiots are just wasting time. iPhones will not get banned, neither will Macs. We know this. Samsung devices will not be banned either. We know this as well. I think these companies, every single one of them, should investigate just how much their legal department is taking from their bottom line and do some serious budget cuts. It's become one giant penis-waving contest between these companies, all for nothing. I'd say the law needs to be changed as well but, given how many politicians are lawyers and how many others have their fingers in the cash flow from this shit, we're not going to see that happen any time soon. Apple, back the fuck off. Google, shut the fuck up. It reminds me of a lot of spoiled little kids saying "well, I had that first! Gimme gimme gimme!"
