Hardware, Embedded Systems "The Q1 2013 numbers from IDC, a technology and telecommunications research firm who keeps track of this sort of thing, show that Android tablets now lead the market with a 56.5-percent share. The 27,800,000 units shipped in the quarter is a 247-percent improvement from this time last year, when just 8,000,000 units were shipped. It's important to note that this increase doesn't come at the expense of Apple, who shipped 65.3-percent more tablets in Q1 2013 than they did in Q1 2012 - it shows the market is growing, and the lions share of new purchases are Android." While Android's market share growth scares me, it's good that it's not really harming the competition. Also, maybe this will be the carrot for developers to improve Android tablet applications.

This is especially typical of you, and I don't think you understand how this works, you don't get to decide what is prior art. A court does. Not you. So things are not magically prior art because you claim they are or wish they are

While patent law is a very confusing subject, that many arm chair lawyers get completely wrong, a court's interpretation of the law is what is enforced, it doesn't mean that a particular judgment was the correct interpretation of the law ( this is why every court system has an appeals system).

Sorry if that seems like I'm splitting hairs with your wording, but too many people don't understand that. And they furthermore equate legality with morality.
