It's slowly being crushed by it's own weight - the patent system.

Like a badly fragmented HHD, the system needs to be reformatted.

Well the new patent system is perfect for the biggest troll of all..Apple. It no longer matters that you had the tech first. Who ever patents it first gets it.

Think they simply went overboard with their careers on this one.
