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.

So now we wait until someone asks to build a flying car I guess.

Oh, come on. This topic and discussion is about desing, not the inside workings of the tablets/phones. So yes, if today you created a prototype for a flying car, then in 5-10-whatever years when the technology is ready, anyone could create a model based on your design (as long as the laws of physics allow it).

If they did, the creators of The Jetsons would have just as much of a case as Apple does against Samsung. Oh, and speaking of tech companies stealing ideas from science fiction:

How can Apple steal stuff that hasn't been made yet? Star Trek is set way in to the future. Steve himself said Apple can't break the laws of physics, yet.
