Don't limit down to one company and then royalties etc, as with this recession can we not pitch in together to what is best for the world?

Not realistic I know....:-(

If samsung quit this ongoing battle and rather focused on being the good guys rather than hitting apple back, that would probably give them more buyers -> more sales -> profit --> everybody happy!

Dual Antennas are not innovating. They are something easy to think of if a professor has done it. It is something like a basic solution for death grips. This is the true face of Apple. They must know that they are not alone in this world capable of innovating. What an odd world! they steal & still have the guts to sue others, claiming of being stolen.
