Re: Not so sure on a couple of points
I think a big part of the Apple-Samsung litigation was that Samsung was also manufacturing their products to look like Apple products in terms of shape and style.

@joe

I'm not really seeing this as a campaign against Android... This litigation would have happened if it was LG or HTC, I tend to think.

Perhaps the rest of the phones manufactures are next. Isn't this feature in all the phones already?

> as Android and its supporters have out-innovated Apple in recent quarters

Android has certainly sold more, but out-innovated?

Re: Android vs Apple
Well, Samsung's patents are mostly used defensively, I don't think they are going to change their strategy just because of Apple.

 

Apple's patents on the hand are being invalidated left and right.  I never had any doubt Samsung copied Apple, but what's crazy about these lawsuits is that Apple actually received patents for slide-to-unlock, multitouch, photo-gallery scrolling, etc -- many of which are now invalidated.

Yes I've never been able to duplicate the same quality of work from after effects or premier.

Re: Android vs Apple
But it was important enough for you to compel me to update my mac information. Number don't lie, they do not take sides, they simply are. I can't say my curiosity wasn't stirred though so I did look up the Q1 numbers.....11 percent US market. Not a promising start.

Liquidfire, 

Your wife sounds like a smart woman. I am pretty sure she only borrows your Note to make you happy. :) 

Yes, I know. Final Cut is a magical experience on Mac. Final Cut for Windows is not the same great experience, of course. :D

Liquidfire, 

I didn't fail to notice the information. It's simply unimportant. Neither Apple nor us worry about that. We are a happy bunch as things are. The quartely information is just to give you guys something to entertain yourselves. :D

Re: Android vs Apple
By about 7 months to be more precise. I would love to give you this year's numbers but as you failed to notice it will be many months till the 4th quarter information can be released. So unless Apple patients a time machine we will have to wait for that little conversation.
