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.

ignoring the US

Now that the US is being marginalized and of diminishing importance I wonder how long it will take until the rest of the world says "sod this, piss off USA" and simply ignore them. If they have nothing to offer to the rest of the world other than patent fees, what is the purpose dealing with them?

Historically a military superior country that is getting poor never led to anything nice. The boxing rebellion in China would be the most ironic example.
