Hard to feel sorry for Apple
These are the guys who sued Samsung for daring to have "rounded corners" on their phone. "Thieves! You stole our IP!! You owe us millions for IP theft!" they cried.
But now that Apple has gotten called out for stealing networking protocols -- an IP a bit more impressive than rounded corners -- it's just all those mean judges and juries being unfair to poor, little, abused Apple, so they throw their toys out of the pram.
Stop whinging, you damned sods! Nobody feels sorry for you. Just pay the bill (out of petty cash) and move on.
