Default Can't beat 'em, sue 'em

ridiculous patents strike again. Dates back to mid 90's patents, but it "can" affect any electronic device on the planet.

Namely HTC was found guilty of infringing on:
U.S. Patent No. 5,946,647: "A system and method causes a computer to detect and perform actions on structures identified in computer data."
U.S. Patent No. 6,343,263: "A data transmission system having a real-time data engine for processing isochronous streams of data includes an interface device that provides a physical and logical connection of a computer to any one or more of a variety of different types of data networks."
Apple isn't wanting a settlement, they want to ban ALL htc, Motorola, and Samsung devices who use Android.

Yet Apple stole Android's method of notification.
They're after me Lucky Charms!
