Apple's Wimpy Patent Suit Is Proof That It's Terrified Of Google

Apple should continue to grow its position in the smartphone business by being better than its competitors, out-innovating them, out-designing them, out-pricing them, out-marketing them, and out-selling them, using patents as defensive protection.

Instead, it's going on the offense with patents, not just products, which reeks of fear. As Apple blogger John Gruber reiterated yesterday on his site Daring Fireball, "If you can't beat 'em, sue 'em." He added, "I feel this suit against HTC is a terrible mistake."
