re: Apple Worked A Broken Patent System
I am sorry to say this but I completely agree with you @SubjectiveMind. :(
Anyone who ever took a lecture in modern project management etc. knows that we all are part of a greater system - which by the fact we created, and simply need to assume our roles. Those people like Jobs, Gates etc. which we might despise or find controversial, knew that. But still talking about company/human ethics is VERY important. How else can our culture counter that high competing market of ours. :)

Are you a freedom fighter? You know what happens with those - they die & the world stays the same. Besides this is simply human nature to take out smaller fish build one's greatness on other's ideas. We all do this at the office, home (in different extent of course).
This simply like talking about politics.. :)
We cannot eliminate shadow systems or bad conduct. We need to adopt to it and develop techniques of keeping the important factors on top ex. project efficiency.

A question: Do you think that all the technological development would be achieved if not for "shark" egoistic unfair competition????
Finally, it's actually the elements of globalization - cooperation between companies, that slow us down. :) That's an awesome irony!!!

re: Apple Worked A Broken Patent System
And yet you most probably bought an iPhone yourself? Am I right?
2nd. Let's maybe focus on the current patent cases because if we would trace all modern product development we would end with quite disturbing conclusions. hehe :))
See patent law is a funny thing and it has simply not changed throughout all those years. The only thing unchanged/irreversible, are the court rulings.

Apple followed the law. The law seriously needs to change.

On the other hand, this weekend I was visiting family in CA whom I don't often see. Several times I noticed that family members had iPhone 3GSes only to discover that they were Samsungs. I've never mistaken an EVO or a Droid for an iPhone so there is something there.

The question becomes this: In a universe where design is so key do there not need to be some boundaries? How do we find them?

Take a good look at Xerox's ViewPoint interface to see what Apple and Microsoft copied. Apple licensed the mouse from SRI not Xerox. Apple and Xerox didn't invent the windowed interface or overlapping windows. SRI did, although it was text-based.

re: Apple Worked A Broken Patent System
Apple displayed what the university failed perhaps to make clear, filing a patent is one thing defending it is another exactly because of the vagueness. If you file, make sure you have the funds to defend against the Apple's whose interests are to ensure competitive advantage or eliminate competition with all means necessary. Not having the funds for a sustained legal battle could have severe consequences regardless of what is right or wrong. Why did they choose Samsung instead of all Android devices? Because it was a one-on-one not a one against many with the relative consolidated legal funding.

WorkplaceRelations 101, rule one don't "discuss" with the boss, listen, rule two when in doubt follow rule one, rule three, if you have the bosses' boss in your back pocket you may an opportunity.

I agree with this whole-heartedly. I don't see Apple taking LG, Motorola, Nokia, or any other smartphone manufacturer to trial G-only Samsung, and this is because Samsung blatantly copied the design of the iPhone in many ways (in hardware as well as software). I will also concur that the patent system is broken; however, this isn't a good example of how it is broken.
