Legal If you can't compete, litigate. Not entirely unsurprisingly, the US ITC has sided with a US company against a Taiwanese competitor - the US International Trade Commission judge has ruled that out of ten patents Apple brought into its suit against HTC, the Taiwanese smartphone pioneer is infringing upon two. The ruling has to be reviewed by a panel of six, but if they agree, then some HTC devices may be banned from the US market - unless HTC and Apple can come to a settlement. We also know which two patents - and yes, they're software patents, of course.

In growth, Android > iOS. Don't look at today, look at tomorrow.


Thom, that's not a measure of merit; that's a measure of manufacturing capacity (and quite possibly a deliberate cap imposed by Apple, at that).

Look at it this way: your argument is equivalent to saying that for years BMW couldn't compete with Volkswagen "on merit" simply because in growth, Volkswagens > BMW.
