Re: Are any of you guys surprised about this?
said by cdru:Yeah, like "an essentially rectangular device with evenly-rounded corners." C'mon. My Palm Centro meets that test, and it's certainly no iPhone. I doubt even Apple has so little shame as to accuse Palm of having copied them, being as the Centro and iPhone were introduced at roughly the same time.
Apple never said they invented the smartphone. Their guff with Samsung is over design patents, how it looks as a whole.
Many of Apple's patents are nonsense. Unfortunately, for Apple, my guess is most of Motorola's are not.
Unfortunately, I think Mot has a ton-load of worthless patents. That being said, maybe they've changed over the last 10 years since I was there.
I've heard, and I don't know if it's true, that Harry Reid takes it up the kiester from farm animals.

on the other hand even if they are worthless, looking at the patent litigation system today. Anything and Everything is ammunition for the patent lawsuit cannons.
Considering apple can sue over rounded edges, slide to unlock, and bouncing the screen back if you scroll passed the end.
it is pretty clear pretty soon there will be a credit card slot on our toilets because somebody out there will have patented taking a shit.
