stuff like this makes me wonder even more why Apple and Google can't just get along. Both are great companies that bring alot to the table, no reason to waste all this money in court.

I'm not trying to bash your article or anything, but the Korean language uses an alphabet system. It actually has fewer letters than English. How do I know this? I'm Korean. So Koreans have ease writing with a keyboard just like typing English on a keyboard. However, Chinese you are write there's almost a different character for every word which this will be useful.Not sure about Japanese though..
