Legal Interesting news in the middle of the night: Apple and HTC have announced they've settled all their patent disputes, bringing an end to all running lawsuits between the two companies. The companies signed a ten-year cross-licensing deal. Considering Apple's legal assault on Android hasn't been going particularly well, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

"Do you have a source for your claim of an anti-trust investigation against Samsung? I've not heard about this.

Why do people do this, btw? Can it just stop? If you know someone is posting something that is actually wrong, please refute them with the facts and links, or challenge them to substantiate their false claims with supporting evidence. This is fine. But if you are ignorant of the facts, don't ask someone who is equipped with the facts to educate you. Do the research yourself. Googling "Samsung antitrust patents" takes 2 seconds.

People do this because, uhm, that's how arguing works. Maybe not in, say, politics, but in the real world, people want proof. You're the one making the claim, you're the one who has to back it up.

Of course, this was a widely known fact, but even then, the request is valid.
