That's the point: it ISN'T any different. However, Apple would have you believe that they are the only ones innovating and that their competitors stole everything from them, no matter how obvious or previously done. It's more about hypocrisy than anything else.

The purpose of this article is to pad competitors when Apple tries to steal then sue the other companies for their own design. Perhaps this article can be used in Apple's next lawsuit attempt? Or the other thousands of articles online detailing Apple's history of thievery.

Time for Google and MS to strike back at Apple's stupid rectangle-with-rounded-corners patent.

As much as I disagree with Apple's recent patent trolling and would love to see them suffer for it, I would hate to see MS and Google to lower themselves to that level. Suing over basic design features won't help anyone. The patent system is broken.. there's no need to abuse it more that's what's already been done.

They *can't*. Microsoft and Google don't make their own phones. Those that they have made in the past haven't been to be direct hardware rivals, but show possibilities to the other OEM's (Samsung, HTC, Nokia, etc.).

You're wrong. The nexus is a Google branded phone. Also, Google owns Motorola, and so all Motorola phones are Google phones.
