 Are you a IP lawyer or a real-estate lawyer?
 Lucy Koh is already in Apple's pocket.
 @sessamoid: Yes, Apple's main contribution in that joint venture was, however, mostly financial.  When Steve Jobs came back, he sold off non-essential business units to save money and gradually sold its entire share of ARM between 1998 and 2004.
 @Tbell: ??  except that LG has been the main display supplier to both Apple and Dell since 1990's.   Samsung has Sony to thank for their growth  in display business, not Apple or Dell.
 First, Dyson's lawsuit is akin to Google/Samsung requesting USPTO to review and invalidate the multitouch screen patent a couple of years ago -- that was not an infringement case.  Second, " Now Samsung - a company with a clear track record of copying products - is so insulted that they're suing Dyson for the accusation."  Sure, why not?  Apple gets away with it all the time.   Take this excerpt from Jonathan Schwartz, former CEO of Sun Micro...
 @freediverx: that's totally false. According to last ITC ruling (the Commission Opinion) p.60-p.61: "...Apple also criticizes Samsung's attempt to negotiate a cross-license of both parties' mobile telephone patent portfolios. We cannot say that Samsung's offers in this regard are unreasonable. The record contains evidence ofmore than 30 Samsung licenses that cover the '348 and '644 patents. See RX-173C, RX-178C, RX-188, RX-189C, RX-191C, RX-193C to -209C, RX-421C,...
 I'm also willing to switch back to Apple, but only if the price doesn't exceed $199 with a 2-yr contract. 
 @freedivertx: that particular article is from 2009 and is not related in anyway to the current lawsuit (ie, steering mech patent) Dyson recently DROPPED. http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-02/17/dyson-samsung-lawsuit: Last August Dyson issued proceedings against Samsung for a patented appliance steering mechanism on its MotoSync range, which it claimed the Korean manufacturer was infringing. When Samsung's lawyers presented prior art, which it maintained belonged to...
  Go read the original article by Benedict Evans DED cited.  The title of the article goes, "700m smartphones & tablets in China."  So it's not just the iPhones, but also the iPads, etc -- in another word, they are comparing all Android devices vs all iOS devices, not Android smartphones vs Apple iPhones, although the charts clearly indicate it's "distribution of price range in smartphones in China."
 Yep, this is somewhat nonsensical. The same report goes on to say there are about 700M active smartphone users in China.  Of these, about 21.6% or 140+M are active iPhone. LOL!!   Apple hasn't sold that many iPhones in China -- so unless there is a huge secondary iPhone market in China we don't know about, this number is a complete bull.
