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.

Autocratic companies usually fail

Autocratic companies such as Ford, IBM, Commodore, MS, Sun, Dell etc are often extraordinarily successful for decades. However the CEO (or his successor) almost invariably makes a massive error of judgement by failing to adapt or betting most of the companies resources on a product that fails spectacularly. Then it is a desperate scramble to avoid bankruptcy.

IMHO anyone who buys Apple stock now should be certified as legally insane. The only possible direction in the long term (5-10 years) is downwards. In the most extreme case Apple may not even exist in a decade.
