Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

Apple can't compete on merit

Apple is now filing complaints about Android tablets, are you ready to admit that Apple isn't afraid, they simply don't like their intellectual property infringed?


and it would seem Apple is unable to turn the tide with just new products alone

Apple hasn't released a new product in over a year, and they are still seeing growth in iPhone sales and market share. HTC released, what, 10 different handsets last quarter and they only grew their market share by 4%, 1% more than Apple with a 1 year old phone and a 2 year old phone.

Combine that with the fact that Apple is seeing historically unprecedented growth for a company it's size (100% YoY revenue and profit growth on multi-billion dollar companies is literally unheard of), I'm not exactly sure "afraid" is the right way to describe Apple.
