Legal It's no secret to anyone that while Apple sued HTC, the lawsuit is more about Google than HTC itself. Since Android is open source, and owned by no one, it's kind of hard to go after Google itself, and as such, HTC was the prime target, since it is the number one Android smartphone maker. The New York Times has an in-depth article up about the subject, with a whole boatload of quotes from people within the two companies, and it paints a picture of all this being a highly emotional and personal vendetta - especially from Apple's side.

It took you thousands of dollars to Apple to figure that out?

It's not like they haven't always been like this, now it's just more obvious.

Yes, unfortunately.... It took me much time to see it, and it turned me into an Apple-hater when I found out...

With OS9 it could seem like it was not there yet, also, the same with OSX. I have absolutely no problems accepting that. Even shortcomings I can accept. With iTunes it was getting very obvious and when finding the truth about iPhone I hated the whole company...
