He used their millisecond advantage against them.

HFTs front run the orders. He puts up a sell order for 1000 shares of stock X for $1.00
before it can execute N HFTs are putting up sell orders at $0.99
This drives actual sellers to $0.95 where he bought , and canceled his sell @$1.00
The HFTs then are no longer front running and the price moves back up to something around $0.98
at which point he sells.

Doesn't bother you ?

According to Sputnik International, Wikileaks reportedly uncovered a paid-for speech made in 2014 by the former Secretary of State in front of an audience of “North American oil and natural gas tycoons.”

“We were up against Russia pushing oligarchs and others to buy media. We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you, and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia,” Clinton allegedly said

Just makes the Democrats look like whiners on top of being idiots. They should never have put what leaked in writing let alone email. Now they are complaining Russia took advantage of their incompetence.

False as always.Comey said NO crime in the Email non-scandal, as in "this was never even close".

Oh really ?

Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case
-- James Comey

Now what FBI Agents had to say

“Each month for 27 years, I received oral and computer admonishments concerning the proper protocol for handling top secret and other classified material, and was informed of the harsh penalties, to include prosecution and incarceration,” for mishandling such material, he pointed out. “Had myself or my colleagues engaged in behavior of the magnitude of Hillary Clinton, as described by Comey, we would be serving time in Leavenworth.”

Likewise, Marc Rich's wife did not donate to the Clinton Foundation THERE WASN'T ONE in 1998

So ?

For the sake of argument lets say you come up with a new encryption system
You can raise the cash to get a patent on the technique and all the obvious related patents, so you actually have a strong lock on your invention.
Now you are 20-50 grand in the hole and you need someway to make money off of it.

What do you do ?

Well you can start writing new encryption libraries and hope you can sell the tools for a reasonable amount, problem you are already in the hole and this will put you further in.

Or you can sell your patent hopefully getting a good price for it.

From what is there, this looks like a pretty reasonable verdict. Apple infringed on four patents held by the plaintiff and got their heads handed to them.

May very well be one of those cases where the patent system works correctly. Given Apples past bad actions it's a shame the original verdict wasn't upheld
