Legal Should I be sad or relieved? Groklaw, the website that played a central role in the SCO vs. sanity case, has just announced it will close up shop on May 16 of this year. Groklaw's place in history has been secured, surely, but in recent years, the site became more and more like a relic from the past, clearly stuck in the everyone vs. Microsoft mindset of the late '90s and early 2000s. Even in today's announcement post, Groklaw shows that its time has indeed come.

Do you just make stuff up and assume everyone does the same?

Indeed, the US market - which grew an impressive 41% year on year - is currently the largest smartphone market in the world, with 14.7 million units accounting for 23% of total global shipments in Q2 2010.

Q2 2010 is actually one year ago, not exactly "currently". It was news worthy because it shown that the US is indeed catching up. The smartphone global market is usually classified by region and not by country because it makes more sense. Europe was leading the market in 2010 (34% of the shipments), closely followed by Asia-Pacific. Asia Pacific is expected to become the largest market. The US might be the single biggest country, but the US is about 90% of North America. You can't compare it with the Belgian or Finnish market. That is why we usually talk about regional markets. Europe is usually considered as a single market.
