Suffice it to say, the courts are going to be settling this based on the patents and the lawyers' presentation of their respective sides of the case.

We, as consumers, want the very best technology that we can get. I don't want second fiddle technology in the innards of my phone/laptop/television/car, etc... . I want the creators and owners of the patents for the innards to be compensated, and encouraged to develop even more advanced technology (hello 5G and beyond).

Having followed these companies for years (nay, decades), I am personally miffed at how this feud has unfolded.

Throw in the monkey wrench of the all out predatory war in the semiconductor industry, and Broadcom's attempted quest to eat Qualcomm really points out the tidal wave clash of Samsung vs. Intel vs. Qualcomm/Broadcom/NXP vs. Nvidia vs. ________ . We haven't had a "game" like this for over two decades.

The winner(s) will get a lot of spoils...
