Um. Okay. Deep breath. The folks behind the Goophone i5, the Android-powered iPhone 5 clone, are threatening to sue Apple if the California-based tech giant releases the iPhone 5 and if it looks like the Goophone i5. Or something.


This is probably a publicity stunt—one with a mind boggling YouTube video. The reason why Goophone says they can sue Apple is that their product was released before the iPhone 5, and if the iPhone 5 looks like the Goophone, then Apple is copying it. Try to follow that logic vapor trail. I dare you.
