I'd love to know which ones they mean. I can guess a few, but would a company like HTC really be THAT dumb??

Not like Apple stole their original user interface for the Mac from Xerox, or anything ...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH

You have got to be kidding! Hey, Jobs! I invented cheap plastic and you are using it in your iPhone... I'm gonna sue the pants out of you!

“We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it,”

Does anyone know exactly what they are claiming HTC "stole"?

Besides, in terms of UI, Android UI actually looks a lot more than the iPhone does (even the outer case of the Nexus actually sorta resembles the iPhone to a certain extent), so if you want to sue someone.... sue Google.

I just read something on Techcrunch which I believe is right on the money....

Quote:

Apple thinks it owns the concept of the touchscreen Web phone and it wants other cell phone makers to pay for copying the iPhone or to stop altogether. Who will Apple sue next? Motorola? Palm? Research in Motion?
The handheld touchscreen phone has been around for a while, waaaaaaaaaaay before the "IPhone" concept ever came onto someone's desk over at Apple. I will lose my trust and confidence in the legal system if this "joke" gets any answer from a judge other than "Jobs, stop wasting our time and do something more productive with yours".
