Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Oh please, they are one of _the worst_ patent abusing companies on the planet.

Well. Apple isn't really. Microsoft takes that crown, due to the fact they they are extending their US patents globally via licensing conditions. Apple is an innocent lamb globally.

They are known to be a very litigious company, much more than others.

Well, I did say _one of_ the worst, didn't I? ;)
I know very well Microsoft is worse in this regard, but Apple sure isn't far behind..
They are both absolutely evil bully companies. ;)
