Thales de Mileto—who lived in Greece about 600 B.C.—studied attractive forces associated with magnets so I am going to have to sue Apple on behalf of the de Mileto family for using magnets in the mag safe.

What about plastic, somebody should sue Apple for using plastic in their products. Or for using light to illuminate their display screens, they know light doesn't belong to them, right...

It's so good to make money from the success of others.

seems like suing apple is the new national pastime, I think that by inventing the iphone they infringed on alexander graham bell's origional patent, think we should sue them?



Want to know what's become even more of a "national pastime"? Big companies screwing over the "little guy," simply because they can...

We should all support this suit. I guarantee you this isn't the last time a company tries to steal someone's idea and run with it.



Clearly, you haven't read the patent or the complaint. So, why comment?

I thought it would be cool to listen to music with things I put in my ears.

Now they have the iPod. I'm pissed!
