With each side developing nuclear weapons(Patents) and using the threat of M.A.D(Mutual Assured Destruction) with all of their patents to stop each other going to court for every tiny little thing, and for almost every tech company that works, but Apple just have no ethics and they'll run over anyone who gets in their way of profit.

Patents are meant for licensing not monopoly. Abusive and excessive use of patent on everything to eliminate competition is patent trolling and patent bullying.
[deleted post]In technical terms, HIGH QUALITY means durable, long lasting, using only the finest materials, perfectly made, flawless. Does iPhone meet all that with its cheap breakable glass and metal that dents, UI that hangs and crashes, short battery life, ecosystem that's easily hacked?

Anonymous, 10 Aug 2012Of course, making illegal plastic copiesYou remind me of that Simpsons episode where Homer used that nodding duck or whatever it was to keep pressing the Y key on computer, but all you are is a nodding duck that can do nothing but hit the "Plastic copy" key, but at least you won't cause a nuclear meltdown, all you doing is making yourself look like a fool.

Apple COPIED a lot of ideas for the iPhone from Android:
When Apple introduced its new iOS 5 software last year, it was full of features ripped straight from Android. In case you forgot, we collected them all right here.
Notifications appear at a bar at the top
This is perhaps the most blatant copy. Android notifications have appeared in the top bar of the OS since the beginning. It wasn't until last year that Apple finally added it to the iPhone.
Android phones have been able to sync wirelessly with the help of some third-party apps. Apple wouldn't allow such apps in the App Store, so it took until last year for iPhone users to enjoy that feature.
Android Honeycomb for tablets had tabbed browsing when it first launched on Motorola's Xoom tablet. Plus a bunch of other alternative browsers for iPhone or iPad allowed the same thing. Apple finally added tabs to Safari for iPhone last year.
New split keyboard
Android users have been able to customize their keyboard configuration thanks to some clever developers. Now Apple allows for a customized split keyboard on iPad that makes typing in portrait mode a lot easier.
Open apps from the lock screen
Since iOS 5 displays notifications on the lock screen,you can swipe them to unlock the phone directly into the app. This is nothing new for Android users who have HTC phones. HTC's Sense skin will allow you to open your favorite apps directly from the lock screen.
Over the air updates
Almost all Android phones are able to receive software updates over the air without syncing to a computer. Apple used to require you to sync your iPhone to iTunes if wanted its update. iOS 5 is the first version of iOS that allows you to receive software updates over the air.
