APPLE WANTED A “PUBLIC EXECUTION” in the iPhone case? This seems quite unwise to me. While they want to send a signal — don’t screw with our trade secrets — the fact is that brand-image is most of what Apple has going for it, and this thuggish approach isn’t going to help them. To me, the Droid is looking better and better . . . .
