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.

For a company that has been a computer manufacturer most of its life, this is pretty amazing.

Thom, did you miss: Apple drops 'Computer' from name - Jan. 2007. ? ;)

I do not see anything strange here: Apple create complete new MARKETS by INNOVATION (just like with Macs in 1984) through iPhone and especial with iPad and it will defend these new markets by all means.

Of course, this isn't the entire story; the iPad is doing great, accounting for 21% of Apple's revenue, and there's little indication that Android tablets today pose much of a threat. However, the situation was the same with Android smartphones only 18-24 months ago.

of course, Google needs time to COPY Apple. But eventually they will make good enough copy of iPad too.

Do you remember first Android Phones?
