Mark my words, Apple will fall (yet again), they don't want to play nice with the rest of the industry.
If Apple licensed their OS, supported industry standards, and still made the same products, they'd really dominate the industry. As of right now, they simply make a ton of money, and will become irrelevant soon enough.
Microsoft could do very well with W8, RIM is going to attempt a monumental comeback (and I think they have a very good shot), more fragmentation, more cloud-based services, more web apps, all equal bad news for Apple.
I am glad that at least one judge is not taking any nonsense from Apple. He made an interesting point at the time he made his original decision. He refused to decide on an examination of aspects of the design. He compared product with product and noted that if one product was different from another product, then it was not a copy of the second product.

They're one of the most influential companies in tech, and still on the up. The mindshare and customer loyalty they have is unsurpassed. You can accuse Apple of a lot of things, but a shortage of dominance isn't one of them.

It won't stop their patent trolling, though. The system is broken and needs some serious reform as it is protecting monopolies rather than innovation in it's current form.
