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.

Ah yes, the shifting of goalposts.

"Android will never be functionally close to the iPhone."

"Android will never be popular among non-geeks."

"Android devices will never be of the same quality as iPhones."

"Just you wait, the iPhone 4 will close the hardware gap with Android devices, and then Android's rise will stop!"

"Android will never surpass the iPhone in market share."

"Just you wait, the Verizon iPhone will reverse Android's growing trend!"

And now:

"Despite us laughing over Android's insignificant market share in the beginning, market share is now suddenly no longer important!"

"Just you wait, the iPhone 5 will reverse the trend!"

And this gem, from Apple spokesperson Gruber:

"It'll be interesting to see what happens with Verizon iPhone sales when the new iPhone hits in September, though. Might be a lot of people waiting for that."

Pathetic.
