Legal Interesting news in the middle of the night: Apple and HTC have announced they've settled all their patent disputes, bringing an end to all running lawsuits between the two companies. The companies signed a ten-year cross-licensing deal. Considering Apple's legal assault on Android hasn't been going particularly well, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

Apple's phone market share and its valuation have increased 100% in the last two years. I'm unclear what you think is ridiculous or losing about that.


What you saw:

Don't be ridiculous.


What he actually wrote:

Don't be ridiculous. Two years ago most of the world's people were using feature phones. The feature phone has zero long term future.

Apple is currently being outsold 4:1 by Android smartphones. It will probably be closer to 10:1 in another 12-18 months.


Hope that helps.
