Legal And we have another interesting development in the ongoing and ever-expanding idiocy that is the War of the High-Fiving Lawyers Mobile Patent World War. Motorola, now a central player in this worldwide conflict that is hurting consumers' wallets and clogging legal systems all over the world, has come to HTC's rescue by seeking to invalidate the patents Apple sued HTC with earlier this year.

RE[5]: Motorola...

The Palm engineers are ex-Apple engineers.

Yes and no.

Originally, Palm had nothing to do with Apple. It was founded by people who had never worked for Apple at all. In fact, Hawkins was developing touchscreen tablets and PDAs, including handwriting recognition, since the '80s.

It wasn't until the Palm Pre/webOS days that some Apple engineers made their way to Palm - some, not all. You are grossly oversimplifying the matter.
