Really? More copying from the Oracle/Microsoft shill running FOSS Patents?
He reports that Apple got an injunction (which was a design patent) against the Galaxy Tab, and thinks that same design patent will be useful against the Nexus 7? Really?
I cannot believe we are in 2012 and patent laws are still stifling progress. No one company is to blame but all the corrupt patent laws around the globe allowing this to continue. We need real change, and not baby steps!
(why can you edit tomshardware posts but not tomsguide posts?)
I wanted to add that real change would be drastically shortening patent holding time. 1 or 2 years, tops, to let the inventing company bask in their invention, and then it should be open for anyone to use and improve upon. This should be globally, not per-country. The current state of patent laws is stifling progress more than anything else.
people this stupid 5hit will not stop until all the smart people boycott those patent jerks like apple and MS maybe you need windows, but you dont need office or xbox... maybe you want an ipod but you dont need that silly macbook or ipad! soy boycott those bastards, even if it is a partial boycott

You do know that there will always be ways to get Adobe Flash on your Android device? Adobe is just lazy as f*** and decided they don't want to support it anymore. This is Android we're talking about here. If you want it, you got it, and if you really want flash, you can get it. I referenced this article for some of my information -->http/www.zdnet.com/blog/open-source/no-flash-for-android-4-1-jelly-bean-users/11433
