Rotten Apple?

I forgot to post this when I wrote it, so it is a few days old now…..

Apple must be stupid. You think up a product, submit a patent and them manufacture it! No variation on that order.

It seems they launched the iPod without taking out a patent. Microsoft noticed that and said "Ohh, we'll have that then!". Now it turns out Apple may have to pay Microsoft up to $6 in royalties for each iPod sold.

Apple are fuming and crying foul, but to me it seems that it's their own fault as they should have known better.

I'm not sure how it will work out in the end, but doesn't Microsoft own 30% of Apple anyway?
