Jeff et al:

Greetings from the field.

I don’t know what you’re on about, but that Corydoras Technologies website sure indicates that this is a company of substance with a deep bench of accomplishment and expertise. Just look at the minimalism. Genius.

And as for their law suit; the iPhone can make phone calls? Crikey, I didn’t know that. It’s a good thing that we have such reputable establishments like that Texas district court of East WhereTheHell to look into things like this. I mean, mobile phones that make phone calls? Good thing those guys filed this lawsuit without any delay. 

If they had let this fester for, I don’t know, nine years or so, next thing you know, Apple might come out with, who knows, a tablet with touch screen interface. You see what I mean? Gotta have a line in the sand.
