quote: I can tell you that Samsung alone applies for ten times more patents than Apple does, week in and week out. Obviously Samsung doesn’t think that the patent system is broken, even though their fans do. I also don't hear Microsoft, IBM or any of the larger tech firms complaining about the patent system. So the noise about the patent system is mainly from irate fans.Leading companies are always attacked by their competitors in the press or on blogs and their respective fan bases usually echoes that sentiment. There’s nothing really new here. But I have to admit, the anti-Apple fanatics are the whiniest propagandists around. Every major Apple patent win brings out the same group, with the same complaints like raving parrots. Although that gets very old, very fast, it's always fun to see the circus unfold. The clowns are my favorite, as always.
