quote: Google shouldn't have these patents any more than Apple should have these patents.
quote: Apple's patents aren't broad or vague.
quote: Apple's products are simply so innovative and intuitive that everyone copies them, and that gives people like you the impression that they are generic and obvious.
quote: Apple is single-handedly shaping and controlling technology and you don't even realize it.

quote: Anyone with 'common sense'
quote: This is how the patent system was intended to work. If Apple took a more Communist approach to IP, like Google does, they would have simply allowed others to use their technology for free, and there would be fewer choices.
quote: Thank you Apple for giving meaning to my otherwise empty life.
quote: people like you are in fact the losers being so desperate
quote: This is far better than a guy in his back yard being 'creative' and shoving a jet engine in a van, thinking the rest of the world are 'sheep' for conforming to the 'derivative' cars that the experts develop.
