As you can see, they neglected to mention Apple, and mentioned Microsoft twice. Well, 3 days later, they filed an amended complaint that rectified their earlier mistake.

And come on, the complaints only 4 pages long, do some proofreading for petes sake! Interestingly, the lawyer representing Cygnus is named Peter. Even more unforgivable.
