Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

I'm on holiday in Turkey and it's all iPhones and iPads here in the hotel lobby (free WiFi). The staff even tried to buy my iPad on several occassions or asking about it.

At one point I got a 350 euro offer for my iPad 1/32 GB/WiFi. I told him I wouldn't sell it even if he offered 1000 euro.

They seem to ignore my iPhone 4 though, even though it has an Angry Birds cover.

Now I must swim.

I have exactly the same experience, but in a fairly different part of the world - Vietnam ;)

iPhones no longer excite, tablets, however, are all the rage with young people and teens. I have an Asus EP121, fairly big, with a leather cover, but steel looks rather slick. And when I take it out, people ask me: is that an iPad2? The iPad has become the top "Want This" item among the youth around here.

They just want an original for the fake copies. :-p

I've spotted fake Nano's here, 3rd, 4th and 5th gens. Was tempted to buy one, but I already have too many media players.

Watches are great here too, they are fake but look so real. It's amazing.
