I dunno, makes me want to eat them then use the cores for target or batting practice. Also fun with tennis/squash/croquet rackets.

So doesn't this prove that Apple is having undue Home Advantage ? Through these patent wars they are just trying desperately not to be another RIM 5 years down the line. It doesn't take longt time to fall. Nokia and RIM are glaring examples.

Apple is on this patent warpath, because Jobs was sore about loosing the IBM/Microsoft war back in the 80's. So this time around he tried to get patents on everything iProduct and the tech behind them. In the long run I see lawyers getting richer, and apple losing again. Simply out numbered because they can cut off one arm(Hardware Manufacture) and another one will grow in its place. Whether it be windows, android, or blackberry. Google (Larry Page) would be smart to just let this play out.

If there should be any kind of lawsuits between Apple and Android device manufacturers, it should be Google suing Apple for stealing the notification pull-down. It was Android that came out with that idea and after like 2 years Apple took it.

These courts need to make Apple post 5% of their income for each lawsuit they bring to court. They are wasting the peoples (court) time with these lawsuits. You don't see Ford going around suing every car manufacture. On the other hand, Apple didn't even start the smart phone era Blackberry and Palm and I think even Nokia had something. Nonetheless, this is getting out of control personally I think Google, Motorola, HTC, LG, Samsung should start a consortium LLC put all their patents in and sue apple collectively instead of by themselves then they can go Nuclear on Apple and have a Great chance on banning the Iphone.

A defeat for Apple is a win for the humanity!
