Legal "In its case against Samsung Electronics in the Netherlands, Apple is demanding an extensive ban on all Galaxy series smartphones and tablets, including a complete recall of stock by European distributors and resellers. Apple's complaint against Samsung in The Hague district court is much more comprehensive than previously thought. It's not only broader in its legal scope than a separate, ongoing Apple complaint against Samsung in Germany, but an injunction could have a 'huge impact' on the entire European market for smartphones and tablets, according to Alastair Edwards, principal analyst at Canalys." That's how far Apple is willing to go. They are willing to screw over countless resellers - some big, some small, one-shop affairs - because they don't like competition. I wonder how the Grubers of this world are going to spin this one. Hey Steve, I've got another extremely successful Android phone maker for you to sue.

There's nothing left for Apple, they've disabled every function and feature they can to "be different" Now they're just another annoying company that can't control it's anti-consumer greed.

Yeah pretty much sums up how I feel about them. I can't believe HP has gone and rolled over as well. I like their laptops and was thinking the company was on track to a revival. Obviously short term blindness (A Western Capitalism Affliction) seems to have taken another victim.

And we wonder why we are falling off a cliff in slow motion??

Dear Apple, stop being such techno PRICKS and allow consumers the freedom to choose what they want without your behind the scenes manipulations.
