Enter Goophone I5, Looking a Lot Like Apple’s iPhone 5

Rather than cooperating in a friendly way with the Asian partners who are manufacturing all the electronics these days, the proprietary monopolistic approach of Apple in its "thermonuclear war" against Android has unforgivably chosen the path of senseless legal confrontation. It is a war Apple has no chance of winning down the road.

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is barking up the wrong tree by making criticism of Europe one of the pillars of his Presidential election campaign. The inequality of wealth and income in America are far greater than in Europe and that is the problem that a man like Romney should be focusing on.
