Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

Apple is the innovator who created the smartphone market.

That might be true if time moved backwards, with the Iphone appearing before the smartphone market that actually preceded it (along with all of the touchphone prior art). Unfortunately, such a scenario only exists in the reality distortion field.

If you think that Apple invented any new things, please specifically list them for review.



Apple even offered to license the patents to samsung when they were caught copying. Samsung refused and they went to court.

Do you refer to Apple's numerous patents for things obvious and already entrenched, such as rounded rectangles and "pinch-to-zoom" (a patent which was just recently rejected: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2045461/us-patent-office-rejects-cla... )?
