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.

" They litigate when Samsung and their ilk attempt to ride Apple's successful coattails with apparent knockoffs that don't pass the giggle test.

...and yet, Apple is bleeding market share, with Android continuing to grow. If Apple's products really are as good as you say, yet people choose similarly priced Android devices en masse, doesn't that mean Android really isn't as bad as you make it out to be (or, more accurately, iOS simply isn't as good as you make it out to be)?

But hey, don't let the facts stand in your way of your fanboyism.

And yet, I'm correct Apple makes most of the profit in the mobile space because their millions of customers, most of whom are not Mac users, are willing to pay those prices.....nothing to do with your fanboy mantra, which is a weak response on its face.
