    Apple is Suing HTC for 20 different Patents, like you can't have Apples type of Unlock screen, where you 'Slide To unlock'.

    Wow, that's crazy. If iPad fails, they can recouperate the losses from this lawsuit. I would like to see how this all pans out...

    does that mean they can sue the zii too because you have to slide your finger to unlock it... this is kind of a pathetic move by apple i mean honestly.

    WTF. It was only a matter of time I guess.

    From Apples patent:
    That pretty much covers everything. If apple wins this every other competing phone/tablet could be one finger operation only. That one paragraph pretty much covers everything multi-touch.

    this is kinda like the cold war where the super powers only fought indirectly, Apple just doesn't have the nads to come after Android directly.

    This is why they need to hire actual coders and experts so they don't have all these stupid patents.
