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.

Particularly when HTC's market share has precipitously declined.
Yeah, though HTC's loss was not Apple's gain. HTC lost market share not because of Apple, but because of Samsung. Apple lost market share too, from dominance to 20%. They're also losing share in the tablet world and the trend isn't in their favor.

Then there's the other parts of TechGeek's post you didn't comment on - basically, Apple's only significant "victory" is a jury trial where there were several of problems with said jury. Everything else, all the injunctions that haven't been overturned yet, they have done nothing to help Apple in terms of market share.
