PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There are various trains of thought regarding Apple suing HTC, and one of them is that Apple feels threatened by Android's rise in popularity. Some laughed this away, but when you look at recent statistics regarding mobile web usage, it becomes pretty clear Apple has every reason to feel threatened by Google's mobile operating system.

In fact, Apple is doing JUST FINE with that very "Mac business model" TODAY (and for the previous 11 years).

Talk about long toes.

I never said Apple isn't doing well. All I'm saying is that the "PC business model" (for the lack of a better term) has clearly won out, and is still by far the preferred model. Despite all the attention Apple gets, the Mac business model (only employed by Apple at this point in the desktop world) only has a share of round and about 4-5%.

So, yeah.
