Legal Interesting news in the middle of the night: Apple and HTC have announced they've settled all their patent disputes, bringing an end to all running lawsuits between the two companies. The companies signed a ten-year cross-licensing deal. Considering Apple's legal assault on Android hasn't been going particularly well, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

It doesn't make much sense for Apple to continue to fight them, they don't care for the small fish, they're after the big ones.


Apple can't win a guerilla war against dozens of phone manufacturers. Virtually none of them including Samsung, LG, Sony and Huawei rely heavily on their phone businesses as profit centres.

Basically Apple is betting it's business against competitors who have very little to lose.
