yeah would be nice to have a tablet for actual talented people   iPad is for that group that everything they own other people made and everything that has ever inspired them other people have imagined - be nice to have a tablet for the rest of us.   iOS has always been the dumbing down of Apple - the device for "joe" - who can produce little with their time - reason why it has so many silly video games 
  That was not the premise of the first statement - it was web browsing. Also it was not about "performance" but the inability to use a feature in a real world setting due to a limitation.   A for this: There is little need for Oil Pastels on a job that can be done with Crayons. I could not justify a RMBP if my workflow went via iMovie or iBooks Author - as design/video software they are not much to speak of. Logic depends what you are making.   regardless, we a bit off...
you can disable flash in Android under preference in the browser - it has built in "click for flash"... or simple do not install that plug-in (the Flash argument has always been nonsensical to me)   So no, you experience whatever "web" you fell like. Regardless of iOS or Android it will be watered down thou. 
  No not really, there is very little 300dpi art on the web - buying a retina screen for web is like buying a sportscar because it can go 200MPH but using it to go to the supermarket where there is a 50MPH speed limit. Regardless - Retina display is like a Mahogany drawing pencil - nice, but no real point.
  First thing you do on Android device (or should do) is set your browser to Desktop mode - it makes the nonsense of mobile browsing a bit more tolerable - those devices will not count.
so iOS has 65% and Android 20% of 6.37 total mobile share   Real news here is that most people are not dumb enough to use a mickey mouse OS for their main web browsing use. Most use a PC/laptop running a real OS. 
finally!... we had chrome beta and now full on our test Android tablets at work - and it is amazing... Finally dropping Safari will be great (how it does not have a unified search window is mind bending) Chrome left Safari in the dust on Desktops will be interesting to see what it does on iPad. The not being able to be set as default is just another idiotic artificial limitation of iOS
As a shareholder your only concern is that the company makes money - not all business models are the same. There is always something that you sell at a cost or give away to provide a greater good in the business model - if the cost are non material and benefits the higher margin service you do it - To just go and think value is based on a margin in business is false in my opinion.   As a consumer outside that world taking advantage of those options is one of the few...
Google as a company makes a profit regardless on the margin on the android devices and the Nexus line is not going anywhere - if anything it is being expanded. Also this is not a one company race - the "investment" in the android ecosystem you carry with you to any manufacture so nothing is lost.   This argument is as idiotic as thinking that MAC OSX is garbage because Apple sells it at 20 dollars with very little to no profit - OSX is not the business model. Just like...
Because the viability of the company is not dependent on the sale of the item or its margin - it is being sold at cost due to that reality, it is a means to an end - That is to your benefit. The Nexus line can not be seen in a vacuum, it is only part of a larger business model... as the consumer, the margin on a Nexus 7 is irrelevant - just as it is irrelevant to Google.    You can also see reflected on the partner Google picked - ASUS is a top tier PC component maker -...
