Google Larry Page on Steve Jobs' comments on Android being a stolen product: "I think the Android differences were actually for show. [...] I think that served their interests. For a lot of companies, it's useful for them to feel like they have an obvious competitor and to rally around that." We'll never know for sure, but considering Tim Cook is reportedly looking to start settling all these lawsuits, Page might be right. Let's hope the lawsuits - settled or no - at least lead to patent reform.

Apple never was #1, i don't know where you get your numbers.
The IBM PC has been an instant success, just looking by the number of unit solds its first 2 years in existence. And the difference is absolutely huge, in the range of 10 to 1 for IBM against Apple.

Only the C64 have been able to outsell the IBM PC, and then only for a limited time, and certainly not on revenue.

of course, that's right! but only because BUNCH of STUPID people bought IBMs TRASH and make absolutely WORST TRASH industry standard. ;) ((
