    Apple sues Motorola Mobility over Qualcomm license

    Apple really has turned to the whole, "I am taking my ball and going home mentality". Just because they are not on top anymore they have to sue everyone they can to try and bankrupt the competition. Just gets worse and worse every week it seems.

    I think Apple went to the same "School of Bull Shi...)as Al Gore...I mean he invented the internet according to him.

    It is just getting out of hand, with this new one plus the lawsuit they are trying to that Samsung can't import the Nexus into the US. There has to be some sort of line drawn somewhere, course as long as the good side keeps winning I guess Apple can waste it's money. I would hate for a ban to be put on Motorola equipment, I know that for sure.

    Their increase in patent lawsuits clearly demonstrates weakness and fear. They are desperately trying to slow the Android gauntlet.

    I'm surprised they want to start this fight. They act like they think their products are pure as the wind driven snow.

    And with $100 Billion in cash I don't see this ending anytime soon. Out of control litigation only prevents innovation.

    There is a solution. People should stop buying their products period. Boycott their crap.

    You know how bad I want a Mac air but will never buy it simply because of all of this that's going on? I'd rather just not buy that product

    To be fair, Apple probably has an army of in-house lawyers. And, well, those guys need to justify their jobs. Judging from some of the patents Apple is going after these days trying to "own" obvious future developments (despite having little more than an idea, the uniqueness of which appears to be their desire to patent it) they clearly have some time on their hands.

    Everyone is suing everybody, apple, samsung, motorola, htc there is so much money to be spent and had. I have a Mac and an iPad and a toshiba and a razr and I like all the products I own as long as there are engineers and developers there are going to be people protecting those intellectual patents as well as they should

    That would be conceding defeat. They're too arrogant to do that.

    This its probably the precursor to that (link below).

    I can't find the link but the RIM/Microsoft/Apple purchase of all those patents (forgot who's) went through.

    That really isn't true. The only common denominator is Apple. The others are countering to protect themselves from Apple. The best defense is a good offense.

    The whole Google purchase of Motorola was to protect themselves from Apple and to give them bargaining chips when Apple fires the next salvo.

    Apple is running scared because they aren't the only game in town any longer. It's pretty much them against the world.
