Apple Files Yet Another Complaint Against HTC
Apple has filed new grievances with the U.S. International Trade Commission concerning alleged patent infringement by HTC. The new filing relates to the ITC's December 2011 ruling to ban imports of certain HTC devices violating the "data tapping" patent. That ban went into effect last month, but HTC's devices were eventually allowed in based on its claims that it changed its software to no longer infringe on the patent. Apple believes the HTC devices in question still infringe on the patent and has called out HTC's newest devices — the One series — as offenders as well. The ITC will need to review the patent behind the the data tapping patent to see if HTC did indeed develop its own software for the feature. In the mean time, Apple wants the ITC to hold an emergency meeting and re-enact the ban blocking HTC from importing devices.

I owned the original iPhone and you couldn't even install apps on it. It had little icons that were portals to web sites and this was back in the days of Edge. It had nowhere near the sophistication of the Palm I had. But I watched over the years as Apple slowly, and I mean they were slow to the game, to add features and every single feature has been copied from a competitor.
My Android is so far ahead of even a jailbroken iPhone.
