I can agree to that one. I like my iphone but I do want them to heed a bit to what others have been doing

Competition is the only sure-fire way to stay at the top of your game.
Competition? USA doesn't know what that means. Patent system is such a joke it's not even funny.

If you cannot innovate, litigate.

Apple is a dipshit company. They only ever did well with SJ.

Personally, I think BS like this can only delay the inevitable....and pisses off people who are NOT hardcore fanbois. While yes Apple has a lot of fanbois, their rocket to the top was via avg joes...who dont care too much about brands (they care more about keeping up with the jonses, fashion item, etc). If their shiny new Apple is shown to be inferior to their friends Samsung, HTC, etc BY their firends...they will go with THAT brand next time...and Apple will go back to being a niche mfg'er catering to their small core of fanbois. Its also becoming LESS fashionable to have apple instead of some of the other tech (as the other mfg'ers catch up on style AND advertising). IMHO this is why they are doing all this as the board of directors see the writing on the wall and want to milk this run for all its worth...then use their golden parachute and retire rich. The OTHER thing that is wrong with the US system. :(

I believe I ranted and raved about this very topic in a similar thread last year. Key among my arguments is that Apple hasn't really innovated anything in the last few years and are now relying on blocking their competitors innovation/improvements in order to retain marketshare. It's very narrow minded thinking and is destined to fail (I hope). Apple really pisses me off when they do this. And yet, their fanbois (I count some of my friends/family in that group) seem completely blind to how Apple actually behaves as a corporate citizen. Apple is acting like the proverbial rich bully at a high school, except his dad is the principal, so he can get away with anything.

Apple patent covers wedge-shaped laptops by The Tech Report

Ultrabooks may be next, people.

I really hope something breaks soon and everyone pushes back and puts Apple in a bad spot.
