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 somewhat agree, although I'm one of those people who often criticize Apple for some of its practices. I like their products a great deal though.

The problem is, that you can't have an intelligent discussion about Android, Google, patents, and a variety of subjects without Apple fanboys cropping up and starting to spew nonsense. What you see happening now is the result of that - Thom tries to address some of the issues that these fanboys constantly raise, because he is an optimist. He thinks people can be convinced by a fair amount of evidence and logical reasoning. He tries to provide them. It doesn't really work - hence the "Apple bashing" continues.

I'd rather things were different, but unless you can convince the mrshasbeen clones to just ignore Android, Google, etc. news, I don't see much hope. Patents, the basic principles of innovation, etc. in the context of Apple's litigious fervor remains a hot topic.
