If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.

For example, Practicing Patent Troll, or maybe simply
"CRY BABY".

Apple is clearly quackers...And therefore a duck of some type or other..

(Christenson)

For the uninitiated, 'Patent Troll' is a derogatory translation of "non-
practicing entity", meaning an entity that is only trying to collect patent

royalties but is not actually producing what they patent. Apple obviously
DOES produce products related to the patents they are attempting to
enforce, thus my nitpick and search for more precisely descriptive language
