Legal Today's "the day after". The day after Apple started a patent war with HTC and Google. Today, we have statements from both HTC and Google, and a number of other people have weighed in as well as to the possible ramifications of Apple's lawsuit.

Why can't it be both? I agree, Apple clearly wants to protect their IP. But surely they must be a bit scared: as smart phone growth continues to ramp up, clearly manufacturers big and small are going to produce Android phones in larger and larger numbers since Google is giving it away. Can Apple match the growth of HTC + Motorola + etc. etc.? What's more, is Apple going to catch on in China and India? It's clear that they're not going to dominate the smart phone market like they did the mp3 player (or media player) market with the iPod. I'm pretty sure the iPod's sales have already peaked (and may have gone down last year iirc). Gotta find new revenue...
