Overall the patent wars are past being ridiculous but so is the incredibly partisan bashing of particular companies, not just Apple but MS, Samsung, HTC RIM and on and on...
Apple was the one that fired the first shot in all cases against other manufacturers patent trolls might have gone after apple but that does not include other manufacturers. Apple sold its patents to a patent troll company in which they and microsoft are partners and now its suing other manufacturers.

I like Amazon, Google, and Samsung. I don't like Apple and Microsoft.

But I use devices and/or services from all five.

Perhaps you should read a few other threads before jumping in as there's at least one other person who disagrees with your statements... a few facts might help and there were examples given in which Apple had started with two majors whilst three other major companies started on Apple first... and none of them were patent trolls but manufacturers...

Not much profit to be made staying under bridges, I guess.

I have to disagree do you have many trolls in Sweden like Norway ?

We had them until 1905. Then we let the trolls have their independence.

Those frozen wastelands are useless, anyway. But you should have kept the oil.

Careful now, you're shuffling along on exceedingly thin ice.... Much more of that and we'll just have to buy Sweden and kick you all out.

Nahh, then we would just end up in Norway. Where would you go to buy your booze then?
On a more serious note, of the three Scandinavian countries Norway is without doubt the most feverishly nationalistic. Probably because their history as an independent nation is the shortest.

In 1905 nobody had a clue that Norway was sitting on such oil riches. Today we are their servants, most of the nurses aids in Norway are imported from Sweden. We are under the impression that no country in the world has higher prices on alcoholic beverages than Sweden, yet Norwegians come in droves to border towns and buy up every last drop.

Sweden = Swedish Bikini Team, Swedish Chef, and Swedish Meatballs
Norway = some stuff that doesn't spring to mind

I think the majority of Americans will support the Swedes.


ETA - I just remembered Rattus Norvegicus. Another strike against Norway.
