Apple Whines about Software Patents Some More
on Mon 11th Jul 2011 21:34 UTC, submitted by
about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

RE: Find a strategy
You're comparing two different things. The comscore measure shows sales grown, the Neilsen number shows acquisition growth. Apple is growing by gaining more new smartphone users, Android just has a lot of repeat customers.
[q]If they had no problem competing, they would not be suing companies for patent infringement and approaching the ITC to get products blocked from entering the US.
Or, in the real world, Apple is using all of the tools at it's disposal which would include intellectual property. Anyone who is claiming that Apple is failing in the market is an idiot, full stop. It takes 6 companies and god knows how many products to compete with Apple and their 2 devices (both over a year old now). I know Apple haters hate that Apple is successful but they are the most successful cell phone company out there by any business measure.
So your suggesting that people are just out there buying android device after android device with relatively fewer new customers than Apple? Apple, the company that EXPECTS its customers to upgrade to each and every revision of their products they produce? Puh-lease! The only thing that matters is units sold. Period.
As for Apple being the most successful cell phone company ever, what the hell are you smoking. They have been in the cell phone market for just over 4 years. If they were the best why wasn't it Apple that invented the cell phone? Oh wait that's right. They only know how to take what other people have done and make it new and shiny for their dubs. Seriously, if Apple wants to talk about theft of IP, lets talk about the features they copied off of Android in their latest iPad release announcement (like notifications, split keyboard, PC free).
