Wow Apple, That Was Kind Of A Dick Move

20 Dec
While procrastinating on perusing the internet (more specifically the thousands upon thousands of articles I have in my Google Reader queue) I came across this interesting article via Gizmodo about the lawsuit Apple has against HTC.
Apparently a few of the important things that all smartphones do (like make clickable hyperlinks for websites, phone numbers and maps) are under a specific Apple patent that the Android OS violates, which means with the success of this lawsuit against HTC, Apple could go after other cellphone manufacturers like Samsung and Motorola that use the Android OS.

Hopefully this doesn’t stick, however if it does maybe Blackberry will make a comeback.
Or Windows Phone 7s will get popular.
Or not.
