Apple Patents "Wedge-Shaped" Notebooks - Now They Can Sue Everybody

If you make a laptop or notebook that is wedge shaped, look out. Apple wants to sue your pants off. This crazy new patent may allowed them to.

The Verge recently spotted this patent, in which Apple is claiming ownership of a shape. This is going to turn into a legal mess. 

Apple loves to sue. They attack anything that looks, feels, functions, or even smells like one of their products, even if the product in question came before the Apple equivalent. This patent is going to be the beginning of a war against the ultrabook. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that Asus will be first in line for Apple's over-active legal team. The Zenbook is easily mistaken for a Macbook Air (by the masses, not us). 

The real question is this: How far will this go? Is the USPTO really going to allow patents like these to exist? How many companies will Apple Sue? Apple has been using Intel's chips in many of their recent products. However, the Ultrabook spec from Intel looks just like the figures in this patent. Will Apple go so far as to sue Intel?

Apple continues to be the bully on the playground... You know, the one that takes everyone else's toys and beats up the kids that resist. I think we should all take a moment and facepalm.

 If thats true then pple with go with AMD and their APU's. There was an article about Apple wanting to use AMD's APUs but AMD coudn't supply them enough in time so they reverted back to intel.

I wish we lived in a world where people came up with ideas for success instead of having to sue everyone in order to succeed...

Apple is just going too far with all their suing.

I mean, if they want to be the best company (which isn't likely going to happen) they should just prove it by beating their competition fair and square instead of suing them until they go bankrupt; sure if they sued every company and they go bankrupt, they will be the only company left and by default become the best company out there. But being number 1 by default isn't anything like being number 1 by beating out the rest of the competition in a fair fight.

Come on Apple, grow up! Just because you can't handle the competition doesn't mean you have to sue them! This is the many reasons why I hate Apple to the core...

 I swear this is just pure stupidity one day apple are going to create a robot in human likeness then patent the shape? Which will leave the trying to sue humans for something they cant control. Apple you re a joke get a grip and learn that to dominate the market you dont need to sue it. we all know your bad so become better and earn it!
