Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

"Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android


Apple is having no problem's competing in the marketplace, no matter how many times you claim they are.
"

Idiots are out in force, I see. You quote Thom saying that Apple needs to counter the rise of Android without underhanded methods. Like, producing a better phone. You may have read it as Thom saying Android reigns supreme. It may not now, but it nearly does, see below.

All your links are dubious.
Apple may by the single largest seller, but are they the single largest selling platform? No, that’s Android.

Apple may take the largest handset profit, all that highlights is they have a large profit margin per handset… we’re not all Apple investors, this doesn’t matter to us.

Android US growth is not flat, just look at these graphs from the raw US comScore data. http://www.catb.org/esr/comscore/ It’s "flat" at 2% m/m growth?!

If they had no problem competing, they would not be suing companies for patent infringement and approaching the ITC to get products blocked from entering the US.
