PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

That's what makes Apple products so good!! Large corporations usually suck at innovation. Look at M$.

Shall we take the number of patents granted as indicator of innovation? Let's check the situation in US in 2011 (http://www.ificlaims.com/index.php?page=misc_Top_50_2011)

#1 IBM Corp. (a tiny company, indeed) 6180 patents granted
#2 Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (the shameless copiers) 4894 patents
..
#3 Microsoft Corp. 2311 patents
..
..
#39 Apple Inc. 676 patents

Thank you Apple, for driving innovation from the top of your 39th place! ;)
