  2. These lawsuits that Apple seems to be in (and losing) will in no way affect them financially since their loyal fan base will always be there to buy the next overpriced product, thus supporting Apple's litigious cravings.

    Apple is getting it's comeuppance.. and looks good on them. I doubt that it anything wil ever do this but I hope it serves to slap them down a few notches in the 'epic ego' dept. Arrogance is not a pretty business model.

    "Que" is a quizzical "what?" in Spanish while "queue" is most likely the word you are after…
     
  7. Steve Jobs once said he was never the law-abiding type, anyway. He wouldn't even buy license plates for his car!
