Another Lawyer is born...

you have said:
Of course its different. There is a new icon on the display.
I tell you not every difference make a new machine. Arguing that it is different does not suffice.
If you insist that for some reason that the assertion that a million different machines are involved must be maintained for some logical consistency, fine, as the owner of each of those million machines you are infringing as each one contributes to the infringement or because the million machines in combination are an equivalent to the claimed machine and encompassed by the claim.
I say that on the contrary none of these machines infringe because none of them execute all the steps of the software method. They all cease to exist and are replaced by the next machine upon executing the next instruction.

The point is you need to show more than there is a difference to show a new machine is made. Computers can become different in ways that don't make a new machine.
