Apple to sue Palm?

Apple seems to be gearing up to sue Palm for ripping off the iPhone with the Pre.

Apparently the UI and touch navigation in the Pre is too similar to the iPhone and they claim it is their intellectual properly.

What a joke!

So what? No other smart phone is allowed to have a multi touch screen?

It basically works the same... sure... but the back end is build entirely by palm.

That's like anyone who makes a computer mouse being sued by the original developers of it...

didn't microsoft try to patent the mouse so no one else could make one? or perhaps that was just the scroll wheel. it was one of the two...

Shouldnt be allowed to patent an idea... rather the means to that idea...
