Guess what? Apple didn't "invent", and they sure as hell didn't "spend their life savings" developing their unique approach to searching all areas of memory on a phone. Nor did Google (or anyone else) "steal" their unique approach to that problem. Google (and everyone else who has a similar search feature) spent time and money developing THEIR OWN unique approach to that feature.

Universal search is not, in itself, a unique idea. Apple was not the first to implement it. They are, however, the first and only to decide not only to patent a unique approach to an idea, but to a general idea altogether so that they can sue competition rather than, you know, compete.

Not to mention the irony of suing a SEARCH ENGINE company for building and including a better SEARCH ENGINE bar on their phone than the competition (and god forbid putting it on the home screen which, you know, is the most logical place to put it).

I don't hate Apple, I really don't. Some of their products are legitimately good, though few are really for me. But this is just pants-on-head retarded. :\
