You post a lot about Google and/or Android, and very emotionally, for someone that doesn't care. Anyway, "Beardsley said Google dropped support for Jelly Bean and earlier versions because it will "no longer certify third party devices that include the Android Browser" and "the best way to ensure that Android devices are secure is to update them to the latest version of Android".Kinda makes sense I guess tho from the outside looking in it's not the way I would have done it.
Using Android as the OS would not preclude the use of CarPlay would it? Simply another OS option in addition to some others they use like QNX. Apple's iOS would not be the operating system anyway.EDIT: I noted you had added to your last post. To avoid confusion you should be aware that Android the OS, and specifically Android 'M", is not the same as Android Auto, Google's CarPlay equivalent. Android Auto is not an OS anymore than CarPlay is.
Based on earlier news reports from November last year the infotainment system itself may be based on Android.http://www.autonews.com/article/20141104/OEM06/141109954?template=mobile&X-IgnoreUserAgent=1
The Corporations Act expressly prohibits companies from owning shares in themselves. With that said why can't Apple continue buying back and retiring stock. Potentially if all the cards were to fall in place over the next several years couldn't they eventually but back all outstanding shares of stock?
Google does not have an exclusive on the original Pagerank patents as you should have noted if you had actually read my post. In fact anyone has been able to license the patent for over three years now. Heck Google themselves noted it 5 years ago in their 2009 10-K filing."The first version of the PageRank technology was created while Larry and Sergey attended Stanford University, which owns a patent to PageRank. The PageRank patent expires in 2017. We hold a perpetual...
Is Apple intentionally bypassing user privacy settings? /s
The stats are sourced from AppAnnie. A lot of developers find them pretty reliable. You of course may not.
"The App Store still dominates financially, with developers finding it generates over 60% more revenue than Google's Play Store. This might sound a lot, but last year, the App Store generated around 210% more revenue. At this growth, the Play Store could be more profitable by this time next year."http://www.developer-tech.com/news/2014/oct/15/play-store-plays-catch-ios-revenue/
Nope.Pagerank has been replaced with another patent or two issued a couple years ago, and like the original Pagerank patents aren't owned by Google anyway. BTW the original PageRank patents were opened to anyone to license back in 2012. Google has no exclusive to them. I think I've mentioned that to you before.http://www.seobythesea.com/2012/03/new-pagerank-same-as-old-pagerank/Further Google themselves appear to be moving away from PageRank and may instead be using this...
