SBB is reportedly looking to make a deal with Apple, where the railway company will likely seek a licensing fee
They say "what goes around, comes around" -- and it looks like Apple is finally getting a dose of its own medicine in the patent infringement department.
A railway company in Switzerland, called Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), has accused Apple of copying its clock design for iOS 6. SBB said its company created that clock design back in 1944, and that Apple's new iOS 6 clock app is identical. See for yourself:

"We are proud that this icon of clock design is being used by a globally successful company," said Reto Kormann, SBB spokesperson. "We've approached Apple and told them that the rights for this clock belong to us."

SBB's move against Apple comes at an interesting time. After a 1+ year-long battle with Samsung over smartphone/tablet patent infringement lawsuits around the globe, a U.S. jury
found Samsung guilty of copying the iPhone/iPad
for its Galaxy line. Not only was Samsung ordered to pay $1.05 billion USD in damages, but a court date on December 6 may lead to more product bans for the South Korean electronics maker. Apple is also looking to

At least with that link you finally admit that the whole crApple thing is a cult. Or at least other fanatics do with their appropriate domain name. I especially love how it is perfectly OK for you to post your pathetic bs but once others say anything negative towards your beloved crApple, you jump in and say how irrelevant, meaningless, and fan boyish it is. You have the 2nd highest powered crApple RDF (reality distortion field) only after your dead fake messiah. You should really seek help.
