    Hold up a minute, here. I hate Apple as much as the next guy, but now you've just got blind hate here. What Apple did was a good thing. They put the safety of innocent bystanders and employees ahead of business. I do believe they could have found a much better way to handle this, but still, I applaud them for putting safety ahead of business. Set aside your blind fanboy hate and act like an adult for minute.

    They've patented the iegg, and they'll sue or force you to pay royalties you if you try and throw a regular egg at them because it infringes on their copyright. A regular egg has never been patented and it resembles their iegg too closely for anyone use it freely without royalties.
