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 has been tossed around a few times now so I'll ask; what new market did Apple create recently?


mp3 players existed before the Ipod
PDA existed before the Iphone (market created by Palm?)
smartphones existed before the Iphone (Palm, Microsoft, Blackberry)
tablets existed before the Ipad (MS work on tablets?)

network delivered content market? Apple wasn't the first.

Don't get me wrong, Apple has indeed been successful in the existing markets it's chosen to enter recently. I'm just not seeing the "new markets" they've created.
