    This is a perfect example of a company thats aware of its future and is doing everything they can to hold on. I wish these "patent" battles were more mainstream so everyday apple users could see how pathetic their beloved electronics company is, they can't compete so there going to make problems where they can.

    I'm guessing you already know this, but they've been down that road, sort of...but they were always the ones under attack.

    I don't understand how Apple can sue based on an arbitrary finger gesture and Google isn't suing Apple for stealing the notification bar. That seems like a much more specific UI aesthetic. Google or Samsung needs to patent the facial recognition to unlock, and unlock pattern if possible and the fingerprint to unlock from the Atrix. This is getting beyond ridiculous. And someone please sue Apple for theft of the notification bar!

    If forced to, cant Android switch to the Pull down to unlock, like MIUI uses? Or the, what I think is stupid, fit the puzzle piece into it's place to unlock?

    I'm sorry but how is it Apple's fault for being rewarded a patent?????? There is such a complete lack of understanding of how the patent system works here, it's really not even funny.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    Exactly! The tech patent system is so royally screwed up that patents are given all the time for incredibly stupid things. Apple is smart enough to take advantage and make money off of their stupidity. Android is not above this reproach, hence Google buying Moto, when that finally goes through you can guarantee Google will shell out some lawsuits of their own, and rightfully so.

    I will say this, reading some of the excerpts from the Jobs biography it was clear he had a pretty unhealthy hatred of Android and Bill Gates, I wonder if the lawsuits will die down after the current ones are settled. Be interesting to see if Apple moves on or carries on business as usual.

    Maybe because they took someone else's invention and patented it as their own. Isn't Jobs' hatred of Android the fact that he claims it is "stolen"? Apart from it being hard to steal a free open source OS... isn't taking someone else's invention and patenting it as your own considered stealing?

    Sort of like me patenting the right mouse click and then trying to sue everyone, using the legal system for a revenue stream...
