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.

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 ;)

I bought a Rolex last year for 100 euro, it's a Submariner and looks totaly like the real thing ($5000+). It makes you wonder what the profit margin is for a real Rolex. I always wanted a Rolex, but didn't want to spend $5000 to know what time it was, while a cheap Casio digital lcd watch also has a stopwatch, alarm, chime and perhaps even more.

Computers and media players are a different thing, not so easy to create a perfect copy. Which is a shame!

At work someone has a Chinese BlackBerry, it even says so above the screen. The software running on it is crap, but you can make calls with it.
