Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

Don't forget: Apple based OS X on BSD (Darwin) and then stopped supporting the Darwin developers. Perfectly legal, BSD license and all, but right?
