Yes, SOPA was created at an attempt to stop piracy, which would let the government shut down any website where it was suspected there was any form of copyright infringement, etc. In the end it would limit what sites we could go to, hence the metaphor...
I have owned an iPhone 3g, 3gs, & a 4 and still own an iPad, which I plan to sell. And then I'll still be on this site until the sheep ban me for not agreeing with the all powerful Apple.
I compare my stock Android to my old jailbroken iPhone everyday, and it's better in everyway. Yeah, a JB iPhone is so much better with all their widgets, weather on the lockscreen, animated weather, live wallpapers, swype, and anything else I forgot
Apple has every right to protect what they've created no matter where it started from, the end result is all theirs.

"It 's curious that Apple got this far on the slide to unlock patent – Apple’s patent is of very questionable veracity since prior art – the slide to unlock
gesture of the Neonode N1m (see photo below) preceded Apple’s patent application, and in fact other German courts have indicated doubt about the patents validity"

apple stole the idea, patented and will now use it to hinder competition.
but seriously, do you really think slide to unlock is that important? my Galaxy S II already uses something entirely different.
hopefully this patent will be ruled invalid as it is prior art.

Apple steal GSM technology from Nokia and steal 3G technology from Motorola, this is something both company can prove because of the cost of R&D. Apple's excuse? They ask for too much money so we just use it without permission nor will we pay anything to use it.
Unlike Apple bogus patent an idea that it did not come up with and able to get an injunction with it, how much did they grease to get this injunction through? Was it the same person that granted Apple injunction request on Samsung device?

Yup, I bash on Apple and the Apple mentality of people. I don't agree with the whole Apple suing everybody for everything, because it's stopping any type of innovation. Apple did not create cellphones or touchscreens, they took existing technology and improved it. How is Apple going to turn around and sue companies who took other existing technology and further improved them. Android took the slide to unlock idea idea, turned it into a ring and added app shortcuts that you can use to open apps you choose. And what does Apple do? They tried to sue for that in the German court as well. How is that innovation different than the gesture from the Neonode with the addition of a button and instructions?
I also don't believe in the whole fanboys saying that iPhone is the uber top phone of all times when it's obviously not. The iPhone is not the master of all phones, each OS has its advantages and disadvantages. For myself, I prefer an Android over an iPhone, yet I got my mother an iPhone 4 a few months ago because of the simplicity of it.
And do tell how my analogy was a major fail? You put in the work of creating something for the assignment, I take it and submit it, the I get praise for the end result.
