quote: Quick question though. You've stated this claim a dozen times now, in one version or another, that no way, no how, can anyone make a "minimalist" tablet and not be sued by Apple. How about your put your money where your mouth is and state something for the record --- something we can, you know, go back and mock you for in a year?
quote: Suppose a company, you know, actually tried to be innovative and created a tablet with a built in cover --- at the very simplest version, something like Apple's iPad1 cover but built-into the device. Would this, expert scholar of design law that you are, pass muster? How about a bezel with LEDs in it? How about a tablet with chording buttons on the side? How about a tablet with a tiny indigo screen at the top that provided basic status info (mail, battery, wifi etc)?I've thrown out, without trying, a dozen different ways a tablet can be built differently from an iPad. Do you claim that every one of them would be sued by Apple?
