I agree. Apple does make a great smartphone. I won't take that away from them. But they're resorting to anti-competitive practices now. Apple needs to chill. I could see if sales numbers were down but come on. They know their products are gonna sell anyway. The sheep aren't going anywhere and the iPhone is available on more carriers than ever. Hell T-Mobile is even refarming their spectrum. Apple has nothing to be worried about honestly. iPhone sales are their highest and will continue to be.

HTC and other manufacturers need to be more careful so they can avoid this type of nonsense in the future. They need to stop giving Apple a reason to phuck with them. A patent is a patent. If it belongs to someone else, either get permission or create your own damn patent. Even if it is something idiotic like the way a certain feature works per say.

Let's face it, Android is a HUGE threat to Apple. And a reinvigorated Microsoft (WinPhoneCool could take a bigger slice out of their pie. Apple used to be the underdog, but the iPhone made them HUGE. They want to keep that status--and suing companies over patents slows down research and development, and marketing. Hell, it stopped Samsung dead in their tracks in Europe. This is what happens when you're sitting on an insane pile of cash. You sue even if you have a legitimate patent gripe or not.
