I can have an honest discussion I think. I mean IMO if Apple was looking for companies to pay for using their patents(industry standard) then ok I understand business is business. But to try to shut down not one but multiple product lines form multiple companies.....NO FREAKIN WAY. Whether done in a courtroom or with a baseball bat it is racketeering.

thats what makes me laugh.. people here think they know more about lawyers and about a company.. all I know is if Apple wins Peter will be in jail with other followers for burning a Apple store, and they will still be in denail, and if Apples loses.. the world will continue.... att least for me... my ipad2 will still work just like yesterday.....

Lets see, 1. Be a fat ass and eat ice-cream for lunch, - Raise BP. - Tooth Decay. - 9 grams of fat per calorie. 2. Be a smart individual and have an Apple, - "Keeps the doctor away." - Great form of energy. - Weight Loss. CONCLUSION: - Go with choice #2. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA!
