    Fux off, apple! Simple solution: stop buying apple, put them out of business unless they change.

    Unrelated: I just got my N900. It rocks! Apple can suck my great big hairy gonads :-D

    Anyone had a read through them patents..... Lol what a load of generic crap.
    It seems patents do have a time scale so these must be coming to the end and apple are trying to cash in.

    Man the patent system is a joke it needs a complete overhaul i agree with protecting ideas and designs on a physical basis ie how we make and manufacture stuff. But the software side of this is just a joke

    Damn, I've resisted buying into the 'smartphone' handset sector so far, but this might persuade me to buy an HTC handset!

    Really sick of Apples arrogance. I bought the Iphone 3G on the day it launched and loved it but I won't support a company that stifles competition.

    Apple isnt about innovation - they would patent common sense if they could - Its just a shame the people that approved these patents didnt have any.

    I will never buy another apple product again. I hope google get involved and destroy apple.

    frontline, the Nexus One is built by HTC, so if Apple has it's way, then Solidus wont get his wish.

    True, but i'm assuming that a google branded phone will have significant weight behind it from google themselves?

    This is simple to fix.
    The defendants and plaintiffs post a poll on ten tech websites, if more than 50% of people say oh FFS drop the case.

    Well said. In a business where products have a conception-to-obsolescence time of under 5 years, patents should not last anywhere near as long as they do. Patents are supposed to give the inventor time to capitalise on their invention, not provide a method by which one company can legally bully another.

    I can see many people here have no sense in business at all, if you think it's all petty. And also most of you have never used an Apple product, but being the hypocrites you are, slate them as liek omGz it wil gt mi scene pointz on diz webzite!!1!!111

    This is the side of Bit-Tech I hate, the retards who never use a product yet slate it, and think everything Apple do is bad because they are mean corporate bullies, heck I bet if it was Google sueing Apple you'd all be celebrating, and tell them they are right.

    What the **** is that...... Are you 5?

    Also a bit of a apple fan are we????

    Did you read them so called "patents" (agreed they could also be bull trying to promote discontempt).

    But I don't give a **** who there from, with patents like that, whoever would be a cock in my point of view hence the reason i said the whole system needs re-thinking to stop such blatant crap.
