    They probably COULD have tried harder, but why would they WANT to? They stand to make more money the more desperate Apple and RIM get to come to a quick solution.

    kind of a stupid comment no? apple being cocky has nothing to do with its patent use... for if it deserves this, i dont know, let the court decide.

    So exactly what technology is it that they're being accused of thieving? Neither this article nor the link at IW mention this.

    This better not be another one of those "putting a camera in a mobile phone" patents!

    Depends on if you think karma is superstitious crap or not. This doesn't seem like typical patent trolling though. Only two companies have been accused so its possible that the specific implementation is the problem. It does smack of the Apple/Nokia case though. Apple doesn't have the patent portfolio in the mobile market which all the incumbents posses so they have much less leverage in cross-licensing agreements.
