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.

"This is essentially the same argument that Apple used when it ceded the bulk of the PC market to Microsoft in the early 90s.

Yeah, and looked how that turned out.

(Apple - essentially a hardware company - makes more money then Microsoft - a software company.)

I looked. They almost went out of business. Saved by some Microsoft money, then Jobs came back and created new markets. I'm not sure Apple is ready to create yet another new market. And when it comes to this market (smartphones/tablets) they are in for a very similar situation they faced before Jobs's return.
