In what way does Google cause harm to Apple? By creating an OS originally intended to protect them from Microsoft's plans? Seriously? Yeah, Apple seems to be pretty hurt by it. And you thought I was being ignorant?Apple's search plans have little to do with Google IMHO and more to do with a recognition there's a bunch of money they can make with one, just as there's been with music and apps and other services outside of hardware sales. They're smart to diversify.

Why is there a need for a war? Google's business model doesn't really overlap Apple's and vice-versa. It's not as tho Google is taking away Apple device sales as they sell everything they can produce quarter after quarter and lead the world in profitability (ignoring oil). Outside of controlling the entire computer market and sucking up every last dollar of profit what more could Apple wish for? Apple and Google could peacefully co-exist, and in fact actually assist each...
Apple is making fast progress with their mapping efforts. Well done. It's not an easy thing to do.
They were offering some guesses for why for the greater app engagement on Android. The app usage stats themselves were not guesses.http://www.localytics.com/blog/2014/app-retention-improves/
I think that might be Android according to a recent Localytics study.http://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2014/06/11/androids-app-engagement-higher-than-ios-but-apple-drives-higher-ecommerce-sales/
So you believe that encompasses MOST Android devices then.
IIRC they offered a similar warning about three weeks ago. What a shame. /s
The study quoted in the AI article used page-hits didn't it?
Even there it would not be a total surprise if Google Play overtakes the App Store sometime in the next 12 months.
