Samsung Reportedly to Sue Apple Because of Possible LTE Patent Infringement Via the iPhone 5

CNN Money writes that an iPhone5 from the "small" Apple is coming.
Who cares?

Anybody who buys Apple company products is gullibly subsidizing a monopolistic operation that is infringing upon the world's commercial freedoms through its declared "thermonuclear war" against Android, as abetted by a broken patent system and general cluelessness in the legal system.

But there is always a reckoning, and we read that
Samsung will reportedly sue Apple over LTE use on iPhone 5.

Samsung holds some patents in LTE, so that Apple could rightly face an import ban into the USA for iPhone5, which apparently uses LTE technology....
-- tit for tat -- justifiably so.

We have no reason to favor Android or Samsung or any other operating system or company, but the monopolistic practices followed by Apple have no excuse in our modern world. None.

Apple was doing well enough competing on the market on the basis of their products. Now they are trying to force the market to buy their products by keeping competitors out.

That strategy is not going to work, certainly not long-term.

People like myself will never buy Apple products, out of principle.
We are not in the habit of supporting tyrants.
Are you?
Maybe you need to think again.
