PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

Apple's 'market dominance' is the result of the consumer deciding that Apple products are better than competing products. Thus for consumers it's a good thing. They get to buy product they prefer.

Well, to invoke a discussion I had with MOS6510 recently...

If that's so clear-cut, why do Apple sue competitors instead of leaving them doing business ?

Liebherr and Miele respectively make the best fridges and washing machines in the high-end market, and are well-known for that. Yet they have never sued Samsung.
