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 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?

Also...



You ARE relentless, aren't you. I thought we agreed some time ago that these IP lawsuits are bullshit:

I'm not exactly sure what you're freaking out about. In my first link I had asked Thom:

"If Apple filed a patent lawsuit against Motorola for the Xoom or RIM for the PlayBook tomorrow, would claim Apple can't compete with them?"

Since he was consistently saying Apple can't compete on merit. He replied:

"Of course I wouldn't. Those products sell like ass. If Apple were to sue over those, then with regards to those products, it wouldn't be about litigation over competition."

Apple is now going after Android tablets so I was asking Thom if what he says stands, that these lawsuits aren't about Apple's ability to compete. I have no idea what the rest of your rant is about since I didn't say express an opinion pro or con regarding the lawsuits, nor about their validity.
