Apple gets smacked down again

Apple is on the warpath when it comes to protecting its two biggest moneymakers: the iPhone and the iPad. Samsung has been Apple's favorite punching bag [1][2][3][4] [5], but Motorola has seen its fair share of attention from Apple as well. Now Motorola can add another victory to its tally in the fight against Apple.
An Administrative Law Judge for the U.S. International Trade Commission found that Motorola's Droid family doesn't infringe upon the following three Apple patents:
U.S. Patent No. 7,812,828 [Ellipse fitting for multi-touch surfaces]
U.S. Patent No. 7,663,607 [Multipoint touchscreen]
U.S. Patent No. 5,379,430 [Object-oriented system locator system]

Not surprisingly, Motorola was quite pleased with the ruling and released the following statement:
We are pleased with today’s favorable outcome for Motorola Mobility. Motorola Mobility has worked hard over the years to develop technology and build an industry-leading intellectual property portfolio. We are proud to leverage this broad and deep portfolio to create differentiated innovations that enhance the user experience.
Apple could not be reached for comment.

Tegra3 would like a discussion with you... a 4 way discussion with a 5th person coming in every so often when things get dull to beat you with a frying pan.

You mean the same Tegra 3 that was either even with (browser performance) or crushed (GPU performance) by the A5 that was released eight months earlier?

But MOAR COREZ = FASTER according to you, so ok, cool. It's like hearing from the Bulldozer fanboys or the Pentium 4 fanboys back in the day that it was the best hardware because MOAR MEGAHURTZ!!!1

Also... Uh.... Hello, my name is open source development, but you can just call me Bob... I have more developer's licenses yielding more variety and competition... WHY YES, I am better! Thanks for asking!

Yes, flourishing open source development is why I'm on the open Ubuntu instead of the closed Windows. After all, it's open so it has to have more developers and applications, right?

Oh, wait:

Of course, you know you can't win your argument so you fall back on the tired and lazy iFart Defense. Sad.

Maybe you'd install more applications if you hardware had real horsepower and developer support.

Come on dude, this is a tech site, I thought people here used their brains.
