PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, the new HTC phones are facing delays in the US, and they now ship with a slightly modified US-specific Android build which removes data tapping and sports an altered app associations screen to avoid Apple's patents. This is step one. Step two is companies avoiding the litigious and anti-consumer messes that are the US and German markets altogether. Clearly, IP laws are working to the benefit of the consumer and the market as a whole. Great work guys.

You're free to travel from Apple Land to Sony Land to HTC Land, etc. Visas aren't that hard to come by you know. Clearly this helps us consumers by ....... making ....us visit more places on this planet and thus gain ... cultural experiences.

Yeah, because paying hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars in airfare in order to buy a different kind of phone is the rational and affordable thing to do.
