Granted I only read the topic, but exactly did Apple do?
The preview makes it sound like they're being sued for existing.
AT&T: A 3G network so good, we had to sue Verizon for making factual statements about it.
The actual legal complaint (Docket number 425196) has some confidential exhibits, and some public pages... About a gazillion of them! I'm going over them right now, I'll post back when I find something interesting.
They submitted, with the complaint, 5 physical exhibits.
- Apple iPhone 3GS (in box with packaging)
- Apple iPad (in box with packaging)
- Apple iPod Touch (in box with packaging)
- Nexus One
- HTC Pure

It goes on and on and on and on, but it is asking to bar entry into the united states ALL portable electronic devices and related software of Apple, Inc.

Watching your ex and her new boyfriend stare at your bimmer as they crash into a tree.....
I hope this works out for HTC and Nokia. Apple goes around busting down peoples doors and being cocky, it's time someone went up against them IMO. "Another smartphone is getting successful? Find something that we can say they stole from us!"
I know this could no way result in Apple going away and that's fine, they make some nice products. I just hate how they act like they are superior to all.
Correction; It's docket #2732 and Document #425195 (The afformentioned 425196 is the classified document number.)
Attached is the main complaint of 31 pages. There's an additional 722 pages in public exhibits, and an unknown amount of classified exhibits I do not have access to. If anyone is completely bored to death and wants to see the additional 722 pages, just let me know, and I can post 'em on my website.
