The surprise is how there's no mention on TS yet of the new Apple vs Samsung suit. Apple is trying to get the Galaxy Nexus removed from stores in the US. And because some of the features they're suing for are really part of Android 4.0, it'll affect futures phones too.

Motorola, which is now Google, are so ridiculous.

Ok, so they first Steal the iPhone idea. Everything down to the look and feel of the hardware to the look and feel of the OS. Almost every detail is stolen.

Then they have the gall to SUE Apple over 3g FRAND patents. Jesus, you steal their idea, then you sue them over FRAND patents (which is illegal?)

I so f**ing HATE Google/Motorola. The US DOJ should file Anti-trust investigations immediately.

The same Judge ruled against Apple in two separate previous patent disputes against Motorola Mobility. That claim is totally baseless.

Not sure if you were sarcastic or not, but a lot of what Apple is suing about is for items that should never have been patented in the first place and if the patent was granted, then it should of been FRAND patent in the first place. Apple suing Samsung because their tablet looks like Apple's iPad, but Apple iPad looks EXACTLY the same as the Samsung's picture frame from 2006. Let's not forget that the idea for the tablet was shown in movies like Star trek, 2001 the Space Odyssey, etc... So there is definitely prior art.

P.S. Apple is trying to patent shaped batteries now. Due to the broken patent system you only have to say that you propose using shaped batteries in a touch enabled device and BANG, you are an "innovator".
