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.

I didn't say Apple can't compete. Of course it can. I disagreed with your numbers. Fact is, we simply quote different sources for our numbers. Example: I provided a direct link to Korean market share figures, where you can very clearly see that iOS marketshare is around 4-5%. You cited a NIELSEN survey that says it's 30%. Now we play the "my facts are better than your facts" (provided they are facts at all) but refrain from name calling and whining about moderation.

Reading your other posts you seem to accept litigation as part of doing business. I disagree with that point. Even if most companies litigate (there's no evidence for that) it is still something I abhor, especially when they use software patents to stifle innovation. I'm against software patents, and defended my position ad nauseum, don't want to open that can of worms again. As long as there are companies that prefer competing on the merit of their products/services (Google comes to mind) instead of litigation, there is a place for criticism, whether you like it or not.
