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.

#1 Where is the lawsuit against everyone else? You know, since it helps in competing... When you're not sure what to throw at your competitor, you load up the lawyer catapult.

#2 - He didn't even mention competing. So I reiterate my point - retire that argument because it's irrelevant. When we'll be talking earnings calls and profits, then be my guest and use that argument.

#3 - Who said they are not competing? Didn't I say that they are running a very good business? Or the pseudo-religious anger blinded you to see only the criticism?

Thank you for proving my point from another post - all people are hypocrites, but some have convinced themselves that they are not.

I don't hate business. I hate corporations, just because at the end of the day you can't really blame them for anything bad they do. Corporations are the epitome of communal responsibility - no one is really responsible for anything. Thankfully not all businesses are corporations.

"I don't hate business. I hate corporations, just because at the end of the day you can't really blame them for anything bad they do."

I largely agree with your stance on the ridiculousness of software patents in general. It has everything to do with a corporate land grab and nothing to do with innovation.

But I'm not understanding your distinction between business and corporations. Don't all legal businesses either incorporate or form an LLC (in the US)? Maybe you are using a definition of corporation which I am not familiar with?

Can I assume that you mean a public corporation owned by shareholders who consider themselves to be isolated from the immoral actions of their company?

Exactly that.
