The news: Apple is suing HTC. They claim that HTC components in many smart phones violate Apples's patents. My opinion: Apple is enforcing their draconian business model on the marketplace. They're trying to stifle innovation among their competitors which is one of the ways they can continue to dominate the industry. They keep applications off their marketplace that might do something better than Apple's own or preferred partner's application. And now they are trying to lay claim that pretty much any way one interacts with a touch screen and an OS is their intellectual property.
