Legal I'm guessing Apple is getting desperate, since its software patent lawsuits aren't doing particularly well. Moving on from software and design patents, the company is now suing Samsung over... Patents for mobile phone and tablet cases (more at The Verge). I think Apple has more offensive lawsuits than products now, so technically, "patent maker" is more accurate than "gadget maker" or "device maker". Fun times.

Bad analogy in that Russia invaded Poland at the start of WWII

Hm, it might be not such a bad one precisely because of this... Samsung is not exactly an angel overall, after all.

The Soviet Union wouldn't be so quick to do that without the initiative from Nazi Germany ...and, in the end, proved that - while by no means angels themselves - they were still "better" (the simplest proof: East German people exist (and AFAIK there was never any talk of anything else, also while Western Allies seriously contemplated Morgenthau Plan for a few years) - that's something which would be granted only in a quite limited way to Slavic nations by Nazi Germany - and actually, DDR was one of more decent places in the Soviet Block, eventually it was very much seen as "the west" also figuratively, even in a place just a short hop across the Oder)
