Legal Today's "the day after". The day after Apple started a patent war with HTC and Google. Today, we have statements from both HTC and Google, and a number of other people have weighed in as well as to the possible ramifications of Apple's lawsuit.

Apple is afraid that history will repeat itself: 30 years ago and onwards, consumers in the personal computing market made a very, very clear choice. People wanted choice, and people wanted cheap. People didn't want a system that lived on an island, a system developed and supplied by a single entity. The vast majority of personal computers sold today - over 95% - fall into this cheap & choice category.


Agreed and I want choice and I want cheap - I know some of you think of Google as the new MS but I'd rather have MS than Apple.

I hope Google crushes Apple like a bug.

Apple is going to be hurt badly. They wanted it and now they are going to get it. They have sued countless small companies who hadn't the money to stand a chance in the court and now Google (and maybe others will join) will squash the Apple bug. It's nice seeing Apple down the hill after they pushed others the same way.
