PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android fans, especially those of you who love your Samsung devices, might have something to cheer about today as it looks like Chinese phone maker GooPhone have already patented the design of the new iPhone 5 before Apple have had chance!" This is just... Wow.

Apple is not a patent troll,


For now. But history shows patent litigation is a difficult habit to kick. It has a tendency to completely overtake a company's core business - probably because the promise of reward for little creative effort is alluring.

Quite true, and if Apple become a patent troll I'll be more than happy to call them such. Until then, I'd suggest we use that label for the companies that actually deserve it.
