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.

Where is the history

Apple did not invent any markets. All you need to do is look through wikipedia a bit. I know, thats asking a lot of an Apple zealot.

Nokia had internet tablets for sale YEARS before the iPad. As did Asus, Archos, Cowon, Samsung, Fujitsu...But right, Apple invented the market.

Diamond marketed the first really successful mp3 player. Enough so that it spurred lawsuits by the RIAA. Of course that was 3 years before Apple entered the scene. Even Creative beat Apple to the party. In fact, Apple paid Creative a large amount of money for stealing the interface from their mp3 player for the iPod.

As for phones, we all know there were smart phones long before Apple built any. The Nokia 9000 was released in 1996. Symbian released one in 2000.Apple was pretty much last to the party again.

Apple distortion field neutralized.....
