the boss falls down a lift shaft - you know, that reminds me of the time when a lift was malfunctioning at a previous employer - the doors opened and a colleague fell 13 floors to his rather sudden death. I tell you, after seeing that splat mark I always check thrice before entering.
boss falls down stairs - did I tell you the story of my last medical checkup. The doctor told me, and I'm being dead serious, that more of his patients die taking the stairs than the elevator.
boss has an air-conditioning unit fall on him in the street outside the office - outside? as in real life outside? I must share this story of the last time I went outside, it was just before that lady took over, what was her name again, Marge something or another...

"one slide to the left, one to the right and the again one to the left and in an other great patent twice to the left and a tap on the right corner"

" but, I have to say, it is about time that *all* the hardware and software makes get their acts together, stop bickering about "rounded corners" and "making calls" and get on with making products people will buy"
but that's what samsung wants isn't it? They've made an awesome product(which I own so I am biased) and want the chance to compete in the EU market, which apple is using patent abuse to prevent.
