Since local storage is always available and high speed transfer, it pretty clearly trumps expensive carrier data caps, hunting for wifi or waiting for things to upload/download, regardless of whether it's built in storage or an SD card. Carriers want you to use the cloud, they see $$.  
This has gone on in storage forever, it's hardly new. Are people still outraged their laptop drives aren't the full available space 20 years later? My rMBP had quite a bit less than 'advertised' out of the box especially with a recovery partition. I expected it. It doesn't matter who's logo is on the outside, it's just how it works.   Now having nearly half the space in the S4 taken up by system is laughably bad / near inexcusable still, but intentionally left out of the...
It stuck around this long as Apple had enterprise level buying for them for education, meeting center scheduling, medical applications and point of sale systems - based around the old connector hardwired in to the infrastructure and custom uses. Sure it may seem not a big deal for basic/prosumer use cases, but for others it matters. Going forward I doubt older models will stick around as long now.  
 Actually that's pretty much utter crap. It's very much 'tightly integrated' into your Google big brother account and it's on by default. You actually have to go out of your way in initial setup to turn it off.  The only exception is certain 3rd party app data, which is up to developers to decide how it's handled. The linked site is a near unknown SEO blog spam site making the whole thing transparently a stretch. No doubt someone like LeBron probably had a legal team...
 Sooo more assumptions that may or may not be tied to public facts (because we all know every company is so black and white transparent with their accounting records...) predicates this entire piece? What is this Android activation math? Then it ends by spinning away others numbers and follows that by directly extrapolating the amount 'allegedly' spent directly to sales and profit impacts? ...Seriously?  Yawn. Next. 
Drops in sales have little do with Apple and iTunes and more to do with shifts in 1) consumer consumption and 2) overall demand. Many are quite happy, especially in younger generations to stream on demand through Spotify or even iTunes Radio. I don't buy the YouTube argument. The second part is how many times can people build/buy their music libraries to begin with?
 Really?! Awesome, let me tell the teams they can stop wasting money on all our m. solutions they are working on. What a waste! They all can do the same thing! Quick let's delete all the device segmentations in analytics, we don't need it! Everyone behaves the same, what fools we all are chasing customer experiences!
It should be obvious to anyone following the money (definitely not the Android crowd) that Google is moving on from Android and the phone space as it's prized baby of sorts into robotics, home automation and wearables. They've peddled their drug to get their ads and services out there, grabbed up a ton of share and now on to the next thing. Like most things not search related, it'll end up stale or forgotten or ultimately nixed or merged with something else in the next few...
 Step 1: That money is already gone, meaningless in terms of investing, makes for good fodder only.Step 2: This is exactly why Google is up after hours. Dump a bleeding asset, you make more money.Step 3: Irrelevant by Step 1, and softened since they already sold part of Motorola for 2.x billion some time ago.Step 4: yep. Business 101.
More likely quite the opposite. I would not be surprised if Apple has pressured the carriers to stop reporting the breakouts. They don't like analysts and day traders reverse engineering the numbers and influencing the stock price before they report.
