Apple continues to sue the pants off anything and everything Android. Steve Job's hatred of Android and it's parent company, Google, is well documented. Mr. Jobs is gone now of course, but Apple continues in a scorched earth type of effort against it's competition - and that seems to be the key to this whole legal morass. In the second quarter of 2012, 68% of all smartphone shipments were of Android-based products. That's a more than 100% increase in market share year-over-year. Ouch.
