 Yes you are correct: it should be 51% of all Good activations (of all devices), not 51% of just smartphones. 
 If Apple's Mac market share was exclusively coming from cheap, low profit devices that sold for 1/3 the ASPs of Windows PCs, it would be pretty bleak to say that Apple could only manage to maintain a tiny minority of overall market share. But as you are well aware, market share means very little compared to profit share (or heck, profit of any kind) and platform clout. Google makes very little of its money from mobile, and all those Android licensees are barely breaking...
 And how is that working out? Dell gave massive numbers of Windows Phones to its employees. Dogfood didn't help.
 I'm not sure why you think its good news for the Rest Of The World outside Apple that after 5 years, Everyone Else amounts to just 10 percent of Good's tablet activations. And that's two quarters after Apple last introduced a new batch of iPads. As Android drills downmarket to gain "share" in the <$300 phone market, it increasingly becomes less relevant to businesses who want to make use of the best technology and mobile development platform. Slight fluctuations in...
It's a bad idea for legislators who have little understanding of technology to write laws mandating specific implementations of a desired concept. If they want to regulate security, they should set minimum standards and allow the market to compete with different approaches. Currently, Apple solved the problem for most users who decide to opt-in, and everyone else waited on the sidelines to see if they'll be forced to deliver a similar solution. Apple even developed...
 Mobile Device Management (MDM) is used to install policy and centrally manage devices like PCs and mobile devices, but has little in common with surveillance software designed to let agencies spy on individuals without those users being aware that they are being spied upon. MDM typically does not "spy" on users in the way these surveillance tools are designed to, and most companies have policies that make it clear when a managed device is being watched or...
 When you read an article that points out that AlQaeda operatives are developing custom Android apps to evade surveillance (uncontroversial), and which draws a connection between Google's severe security problems that are not going to be patched for hundreds of millions of users (uncontroversial) and the fact that Android is the development platform of choice for jihaddist revolutionaries who are seeking to attack Western governments and infrastructure (uncontroversial),...
 Google issuing a fix for AOSP does not result in a patch being delivered to the hundreds of millions of phones using a distribution that includes AOSP code. Also, you simply lied when you represented the article stating "Google won't fix it." The article actually states that Google is expected to issue patches, but that those patches are unlikely to ever reach most Android users for the usual reasons.  Flash doesn't need to be "in" Android for there to be remaining...
 I and L are not even the same letter. 
Android fans have been insisting that Google's security issues (like the most recent Fake ID) are not a problem because Google Play Services and store scanning can prevent many users from falling victim. However, the fact that there are hundreds of millions of insecure Android installations outside of the US and other Play-using nations means that Al-Qaeda -- which is already developing Android apps to encrypt messages among jihadists -- has large numbers of mobile users...
