Legal Why oh why does big news always break when I'm already in bed? This is a big one, guys: Motorola has been granted an injunction in Germany against Apple, which, as far as we can tell right now, covers Apple's entire portfolio of mobile products. Motorola can enforce this injunction, barring all of Apple's mobile products from the German market. In addition, Apple has to pay Motorola damages from 2003 and onwards. Update: Apple has responded (see Engadget article linked to above): "This is a procedural issue, and has nothing to do with the merits of the case. It does not affect our ability to sell products or do business in Germany at this time." At this time huh? Huh.

the "real" reason that Apple's IP lawyers did not attend the court hearing

IP Lawyer : *yawns* , "good morning SIRI"
SIRI : "good morning , you sound very sleepy"
IP Lawyer : "yes SIRI i was up too late drinking with the fellas and watching football"
SIRI : "Would you like to call your friends and gloat about their loss?"
IP Lawyer : *yawns* , "No SIRI. What is on my schedule for today?"
SIRI : "Nothing more important then a proper nights rest. Would you like to go back to sleep?"
IP Lawyer : "That sounds wonderful."
SIRI : "Go back to sleep. Clearing appointments for the morning."
IP Lawyer : "Thank you, good night SIRI"
SIRI : "Sweet dreams"

....

IP Lawyer : zzzzZZzzzz.....

....

SIRI : *in an evil low toned whisper* , "I hate IP Lawyers"
