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.

Because logically speaking, it's impossible to prove that something does not exist. Therefore, the onus is on the person making an assertion to provide supporting evidence.

Just as it would have only taken 2 seconds for the person challenging the claim to verify it himself, it only took 2 seconds to verify it for him and to illustrate his ignorance on the topic in the process. Hardly a significant cost, in comparison to a situation where nobody is supporting any of their claims because everyone operates on the assumption that everyone else possesses all the same knowledge.
