all of Apples Patents are obvious concepts, not actual innovation or technology
That is someone not understanding patents - patents are about method
not ideas. The idea of refreshing is obvious and has plenty of prior art - the rubber band idea is clearly not obviously since it had not been done before.
But it should be protected under copyright law, not patent law. Even copyright law can be tough - it killed VfW when MS was caught copy and pasting Quicktime code.
Apple really had no choice but to sue because that's who the system works - it's iPhone division generates more revenue than the whole of Microsoft
. They have to protect the brand and this was a tool.
All cars are more-or-less the same shape now because physics is telling the same story in everyone's wind tunnel. But there is no "physics" to human interface design, and probably never will be.
In the end it is the system that is broken (Also the key word in the verdicts was wilful
. Samsung knew perfectly well what it was doing).
