Legal I'm guessing Apple is getting desperate, since its software patent lawsuits aren't doing particularly well. Moving on from software and design patents, the company is now suing Samsung over... Patents for mobile phone and tablet cases (more at The Verge). I think Apple has more offensive lawsuits than products now, so technically, "patent maker" is more accurate than "gadget maker" or "device maker". Fun times.

Perhaps it would have been best just to list IOS's unique strengths. In fact, why don't you list them right now, for review, so we can assess just how many unique strengths IOS has.

OK, in use IOS appears to be finished and organised whereas Android feels like a work in progress and rather disorganised. Settings are stored in a single place rather than multiple settings apps. This is all based on my HTC Android phone so maybe it's HTC that has made it seem that way - but there is the other unique strength of IOS, there is NO fragmentation. When you buy IOS you buy IOS and it will look and feel like IOS. We've all (geeks especially) moaned about the crapware added to Windows by OEMs over the years and yet for some reason Google have allowed it on their phone OS.
