This seems like the perfect point to paste this amazing little graphic [via DF], even though a day after it debuted, it’s already outdated. See, Motorola has just sued Apple. Here’s what they’re saying:
Overall, Motorola Mobility’s three complaints include 18 patents, which relate to early-stage innovations developed by Motorola in key technology areas found on many of Apple’s core products and associated services, including MobileMe and the App Store. The Motorola patents include wireless communication technologies, such as WCDMA (3G), GPRS, 802.11 and antenna design, and key smartphone technologies including wireless email, proximity sensing, software application management, location-based services and multi-device synchronization.
Motorola is citing “Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iTouch and certain Mac computers” as offenders. You know, Motorola, at least call things by their real names. iTouch isn’t actually a device, just common parlance. You can do better than that.
