Legal Okay, I didn't see this one coming. German press agency dpa is reporting that Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction barring Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being distributed in the entire European Union except for The Netherlands, over a design patent. Competition at its finest, people, and this is clearly in the interest of consumers. I'm ashamed to be European. Updates in the article now. This iterative update process isn't really working when you've got a gazillion of them.

There's nothing wrong with acknowledging that Apple is capable of making great products and simultaneously acting like complete assholes in the market. Just because they make desirable products doesn't mean that they're free of criticism when they attempt to squash competition through government intervention over frivolous claims.

except, OP probably wanted to tell people should decide on whether they will
- buy and support both (great products AND being arseholes)
- boycott apple and show them that great product does not indemnify you from being arsehole (p.s. as far as "apple" and "great" goes in same sentence i'll probably have nightmares on writing this)
