This nifty little video from Onlinemba.com sets out to explain the history and significance of the epic Apple vs. Samsung patent battle in less than two minutes.

Watch the stat and Che Guevara-filled video for a remarkably concise summary of the whole thing, including the implications for Google , Android, and the wider smartphone universe.
