2 APPLE employees at lunch having a nice conversation: Employee A: Hey, B, ummm, I notice the blueprints for the next iteration of 'the phone' Employee B: Yeah? Employee A: Well, umm, they look nice and all....but.... Employee B: But, what? I worked hard on them for about 20 minutes, copying them from the last blueprint. Employee A: So, that is it - looks like like a flatter version of the last phone. So, now what? Employee B: Tim wants me to take a bar exam in the morning. I am need on the front lines.

It's not so much fun when it's Apple who's on the receiving end of litigation, huh? Seriously, I'm not a fan of all these lawsuits and injunctions/bans/etc., because as we've seen with Apple vs. Samsung, either company (or in this case, both companies) will never be looked at the same way again. Samsung, despite being the knight in shining armor in the eyes of many, is not invulnerable to criticism regarding their actions and ideas in their suit...and Apple is not invulnerable, either. This really does seem to be karma coming back to kick Apple right in the ass, a taste of their own medicine, if you will. Whether they win or lose, Motorola is letting Apple know that they can take others to court for silly patent claims, too.
