Apple started suing (attacking) Android too late. The
inertia Android had gained was too much and Apple is no
longer leader (if you aggregate Android sellers).
With many sub-$200 Android tablets and one in India ($35-62)
to each millions, the same will happen in tablets.
It wasn't just Jobs who died last weeks. Many jobs in Apple
will wither over the coming decade. Apple does not have
a monopoly over hardware components, just brands.
