Motorola had filed a counterclaim that the iPad design patents are actually invalid, which was dismissed by the judges, so it's a win-win stalemate - Motorola is free to sell its Xoom and won't pay any damages, while Apple gets to keep its wobbly design sketch iPad patents as credible, and fight another day, if that's what its lawyers deem necessary...

I'd like to see Apple suing Sony to see what happens.

I heard Apple is going to sue Vatican for claiming that the 10 Commandments were written on a tablet that looks like an iPad. There goes Christianity...

The fact that the XOOM was even considered as an iPad copy should tell folks Apple is REALLY disturbed, crazy and deranged....
