“Thermonuclear War,” a large scale was initiated against the makers of Cupertino Android-devices that claimed hundreds of millions of dollars – but does it make sense?

It is easy to imagine that this amount grows at times, when it comes to such powerful players as Motorola, which was close to the prohibition of “apple” products in Germany, or Samsung, the world’s largest holder of intellectual property for mobile communications.
From the biographical book, “Steve Jobs” Walter Isaacson can learn that in the debate on patent litigation, which is Apple, Steve, already known for his tough character, incredibly angry, and much of it was due to actually betraying Google,

In any case it is obvious that Apple has succeeded little in the fight against Android: the victory is so small that competitors can easily avoid obstacles, making only minor changes to their products.
