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.

That's not the point. The point is that they already existed and that Apple "only" created successful products for already existing markets.

Nobody disputes these markets existed, they just had crappy products and not many (big) players were involved.

Apple entered those markets and proved you could make big money, this caused competing companies to jump in to try and get their share.

The OP, in the post that soulbender was responding to, states that Apple created these markets. 'Create' is a very different concept from 'enter'. You may not agree with the OP, but the context of your reply is rather strange. The reply was directed at what was explicitly claimed, and the reply is valid.
