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.

Actually, you've got a good point. I was thinking it would be funny and I would get some good quality amusement if virtually every Apple product were banned, but more as a "hah, assholes--that's what you deserve" kind of way. But banning them would no doubt scare a lot of people, and Apple being as big as they are right now, something like this would be a potentially good thing.

The only problem is, if it happens, it might make the news... but unfortunately, the news reporters will try to paint Apple as the good guys here and Google as the devil, and not speak a word about the events (ie. patent slinging shitfest by Apple) leading up to the Apple ban. Apple's got everyone, including the press and the news reporters, in their pockets. They'll flash money in front of these people's eyes to make sure they keep their trap shut when it means the potential (though IMO well-deserved) tarnishing of Apple's image.
