Jeff John Roberts for Gigaom:
The case was ultimately insignificant from a legal or business perspective, but that didn't matter to Apple and Samsung partisans, who treated every twist in the trial as an excuse to cheer on their favorite side, and to insult their opponent.
Yeah, that's about right. Compared to products I think patents are meaninglessly boring. I also think lawsuits are boring. Patent lawsuits are a party sized boring sandwich. At one time I think Apple had a strategy to make Android more expensive through lawsuits and licensing. I don't know if that ever was sound or even matters anymore. I'd just like to stop reading about it and instead focus on products that actually help me do the stuff I do better.
