Legal Earlier this week we reported on the court case between Apple and PsyStar, stating they went into settlement negotiations. Details, however, were sparse. The law firm representing PsyStar has now replied to the matter, and there's good news for those of us who hope to see crazy EULA clauses tested in court.

Quote the proper statistic. That 21% is not only a US-only figure, but also an estimate by IDC. The actual market share figure given in that article is a measly 2.9% in 2008 - worldwide.

No one takes RoughlyDrafted seriously. You might as well get your election news from The Daily Show.

Apple market share growing fast


...in the US. You will notice that Apple ALWAYS gives out US figures only. If a company goes for a less meaningful figure, it usually means that the more important figure (in this case, worldwide market share) isn't as rosy.

Look, nobody is denying Apple is doing relatively well these days - we are all just worried what will happen when the iPod/iPhone fad wears off. And trust me - it will. What then? What if Apple doesn't appear in all those rap videos anymore?

What do you disagree with Roughly Drafted over - that he doesn't agree with your opinions. If you read his articles, they are filled with facts and common sense. But since he doesn't get big money from Microsoft for ads, you believe he can't be reasoned in his opinions?

Actually, seriously, being someone who is following this US election with a lot of interest and dread, I can't say anything negative about TDS's coverage.
