Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

Was whether or not Obama should veto the ban, not patents again. Which he should not because he should be too busy reining in the NSA to get involved in trivial corporate nonsense like this. This is just part of the seemingly endless legal war between Samsung and Apple, and should not be the President's problem. Especially when he has infinitely more important things to worry about.

Oh yeah, and Jim Dalrymple, get a clue.
