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.

Still $50bn difference. And considering value of a share for Exxon and Apple, Apple's EPS is 6.4% of the price while Exxon's is 8.5%.
And as unlikely as it sounds to me Apple will beat Exxon. (I even lost a bet on it for 20 pints of beer)

But, hey, as I said "WallStreet is full of nutters". And no thanks to Bloomberg and their "analysts" that predict that Apple will get to $550. And now they will!

But, what do you think Apple's market share and growth will look like in CYQ4 if they release a new iPhone in CYQ3?

If they don't enter lower priced market segments, they will soon hit "the wall". I predict that they will sell no more than 23million iPhones for Q3, if they stay solely in the premium market. And I think premium market is somewhere around 200mil per year.
With tablets, it's harder because competitor sales are statistically insignificant compared to Apple to evaluate growth of the whole market.
