Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

As I said before, these kinds of articles are designed to do nothing but turn technical sites into political soapboxes.

Oh no, we can't have that now! Technology and politics can never collide.


I think the point 'WorknMan' was trying to get at was the endless circle jerks that come out of every article of said nature which lead no where - it's a parlour game equal to that of, "if I won the lotto what would I do with the winnings". After 2 hours of said fanciful discussion many dreams are expressed but you come down to earth realising you're stuck in a dead end middle income job with a car that over heats during summer and has difficulty starting in the winter.

I'm all for discussions about patents but I do think that it is flogging a dead horse which IMHO Thom should create a 'discussion area' where people can rant about that particular topic on said location and the topic, if it must be bought up on Page 1 or Page 2 is done so in passing. Call the area 'the patent tab' where all patent related rants are located.
