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 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.

As curious as it sounds, the Vietnamese don't like fake copies. Most westerners believe that SE Asia is the same (and it's like China). There are a lot of differences. Fake airbooks, iphones, etc. are all the rage in China. Here? Well, you can find them, but you really really have to look hard. As I drive through the city, I see a lot of mobile shops advertising iPhones, or exclusive mac stores, and all are genuine. Actually, a lot of Chinese products in general have the same bad reputation around here like in our countries, and people are trying to avoid buying them when possible.

Watches, however, are a different matter ;) They sell great Rolexes around here ;)
