    Apple isn't "an electronics maker". They design electronics, buy a lot of Samsung components and have poor Chinese people work 18 hours a day to assemble them.

    Importers and purveyors of Chinese electronics seems like a good description to me.

    17,000 patents should even things out enough to force the big players to negotiate and co-operate

    The advent of IPv6 allows the requisite number of phone home patent chips to allow auto-negotiation of any lawsuits that may come about from now on.
    But to limit the number of complaints about patents on Slashdot, I suggest we set an arbitrary limit on the number of patents allowed to exist at any one time.
    I think 640K ought to be enough for everybody.
