Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

Morons granting patents?

I went through the engadget story. Bottomline: how could the patent office grant them in the first place? Such solutions, which Apple holds patents for (especially those granted recently), have been broadly used and there are numerous applications in different devices from vast number of manufacturers in the market. It's just in sane!
