frivolous adj. Of minimal importance; legally worthless. A frivolous suit is one without any legal merit. In some cases, such an action might be brought in bad faith for the purpose of harrassing the defendant. In such a case, the individual bringing the frivolous suit might be liable for damages for Malicious Prosecution.A frivolous appeal is one that is completely lacking merit, since no review able question has been raised therein.West's Encyclopedia of American Law, edition 2. Copyright 2008 The Gale Group, Inc. All rights reserved.frivolous adj. referring to a legal move in a lawsuit clearly intended merely to harass, delay, or embarrass the opposition. Frivolous acts can include filing the lawsuit itself, a baseless motion for a legal ruling, an answer of a defendant to a complaint which does not deny, contest, prove, or controvert anything, or an appeal which contains not a single arguable basis (by any stretch of the imagination) for the appeal. A frivolous lawsuit, motion or appeal can result in a successful claim by the other party for payment by the frivolous suer of their attorneys fees for defending the case. Judges are reluctant to find an action frivolous, based on the desire not to discourage people from using the courts to resolve disputes.Copyright © 1981-2005 by Gerald N. Hill and Kathleen T. Hill.

I just want to add that I am by no means an Apple supporter, I just have strong opinions about what is and isn't considered "legal" or good business.
If you look at fig. 5 & 6 it looks like there are micro-usb ports. Doesn't apple use their own port for power and communications?
My Asus netbook, which is still used daily with it's 10 hour battery life is a classic example of a wedge design that predates this patents by a few years. Apple needs to crash and burn hard.
This man calls BS!
I should patent something that apple is using but they haven't patented yet, then sue apple for infringement. I would let all the other companies use it free of charge and give apple the big green weenie. Major dick move.
That's it.....I'm putting y'all on notice. If apple patents the wedge, I'm patenting the fulcrum.....and the wheel
Do I hear U.S. Department of Justice antitrust lawsuit against Apple?
