Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

martini,

"At least someone is making Apple pay with their own currency."

Ouch!

However, like in the MS-i4i case, I still am against software patents even when they're used against the very corps which support the broken patent system.

I second the above.
As much as I enjoy seeing both Apple and Microsoft (two companies I personally despise) get a taste of their own medicine, I believe --all-- software patents should be abolished. Period. End-of-point. (And from where I'm sitting I could easily abuse this broken system)

My comment for that case is: Payback is a bitch.

Other than that, i4i should have filed for copyright infringement, since they worked on the product with MS.
