re: Apple Vs. The Swiss Railways Patent
I suggest you edit the article to remove the claim that Switzerland is irrelevant and follow that up with a written apology to the Swiss ambassador. That part removed any credibility from this article and was entirely unnecessary. Next time think before you write!
As far as the design patent goes, Apple has numerous of questionable design patents and uses them to sue the pants off from others. Now they are on the receiving end and folks get upset? Besides that, the Swiss railway patent on the clock face has an important historical aspect to it. Further, Switzerland is a global powerhouse in regards to clock manufacturing. And the red dot on the second hand's end was added so that train conductors and other staff can easily see when the full minute is reached to make departures exactly on time.
Mr. Babcock, maybe you should read first about things that you plan to write about, otherwise your posts are nothing more than an embarrassing string of clueless accusations. I know you can do better!
