"U.S. patent 7,469,381, relating to "list scrolling and document translation, scaling, and rotation on a touch-screen display" is actually about the 'bounce' that users see on their phone at the end of a list being scrolled."

The patent system is completly out of control. the fact that you can patent a 'bounce' is insanity.

Ok lets say Apple bans every competitive device to its crap iPhone. And there is no other cellphone's to choose from (that is actually worth something). And the only choice people have in the USA is the crap Apple iPhone. Very soon allot of people will be very angry because of the lack of choice of cellphone's (that is actually worth something). And then the people will start to boycott Apple and their crap iPhone.
Apple looses way more on a iDevice that doesnt sell than Google looses on an Android device that doesnt sell.

Anyway I dont really care. I have my Galaxy S3 and its way better than my crap iPhone 4S ever was. Because here in South Africa the people dont really like Apple and their crap iPhone. Here in South Africa we like change, and the crap iPhone never changes its always the same (the only thing that changed in iOS 5 is the crap notification centre that Apple copied from Android).
