Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

Android is free to me, and most of the world. Can't help it that one German city and the US have fcuked up patent laws.

Don't affect me, so don't care.

Maybe to you, I think "the rest of the world" is an exaggeration.

These are the kind of comments that make me think you have a religious hatred of Android and are in fact a troll. Which is why I called you out in the Nexus 7 comments.

No, the rest of the world is larger than the US and its broken patent system.

Go have a look at the figures. Samsung invests a whole lot more in R&D so you have clearly not read enough . . . .

Apple invests mainly in marketing, they were never innovative.

Use Google/Bing/DuckDuckGo and you will find.

I think you need to double check your sources. The only market that matter is the one in where Apple is loosing market share:

In the US Apple’s share grew to 36% from only 25%, while in the UK it rose to 31% from 21% in the 12 weeks to end-November.
However in Europe’s biggest markets - Germany and France - the iPhone has lost some ground. In Germany the drop was from 27% to 22% and in France it was even bigger - Apple’s share slipped to 20% from 29%.

IF you don't care because you don't live in the US, then why do you spend so much tikme making posts about this stuff? If Holland has no software patent law, and therefore you don't care, then maybe you can move on to other topics?
