Just emailed Tim Cook!
Think he will respond?
My name is John, I'm 16 years old, and I follow technology news religiously. In recent months your company has been on a litigation rampage, especially on a mobile front ( Apple vs. various Android OEM's in particular). I respect the design of Apple products and the thought that is put into them. Your company is one of the world's most valuable by a healthy margin. My question to you then, is why Apple sees fit to fight its competitors with litigation, rather than innovation. Your company is well capable of pushing the envelope, but as of late it's abundantly clear that is not the case. Google is now forced to remove local search from their Galaxy Nexus. Can you honestly say that your company deserves to enforce a patent that has existed on a plethora of other devices for years? If yes, what is your stance on the very real possibility your next iPhone, iPad, or Mac could one day be banned/blocked/forced to change because of a patent that you find ridiculous? You may be helping protect your IP but you are hurting innovation and consumers at large in the pursuit of it.
I understand you are acting within the realm of the law. Does that make it right though?
