And the downward spiral continues. First the patent case is UK found in favor of Samsung (and their "apology" was ridiculed by the judge), their lawsuit against Motorola/Google was thrown out, the iPad mini's sales did not meet expectations, and now this. If all goes well, their motion to add 17 Samsung devices to the current lawsuit because they can use a stylus (yes, I'm serious) gets tossed out.

Now to borrow a line from the rotten Apple themselves: "This changes everything."

While I do not support Apple outside of 10" tablets, I must say this. After reading the comments, it seems like fandroids are now as immature and annoying as iSheep.

I want to find a site where fandroids and isheep don't dominaten the comment section, but it seems as if I will be searching forever.
