  I got my numbers backwards as well. Funny that GG didn't catch my mistake - must not really be paying much attention. He used my original formula (which I did wrong) and went from there without even checking my math. For Google to have paid out $7 billion in 2014 they needed App revenues of $10 billion. As you pointed out, for Apple to have paid out $10 billion they needed revenues of $14.3 billion. iTunes/App Store was around $20 billion for 2014, so it's entirely...
 Always trying to deflect, aren't we? Why are you avoiding the issue regarding Google's accounting and the fact it's impossible to reconcile $7 billion paid to developers against their own financial statements? However, in looking over my numbers I appear to have made a mistake. Depending on how they do their accounting, they might not record TOTAL App revenues - they may only be recording the 70% portion they take. So on $23 billion total sales, Google would get to keep...
 Uh, who's trying to cover anything up? Nobody is denying Steve could be a bear to work for. However, everything you read in the press always concentrates on the negative. Here is an account showing some of the positive sides of Steve. Unless your position is Steve was 100% asshole and there isn't a single nice attribute about him or that he's never done anything good for anyone in his entire life.
 What I want to know is: A) Google's own numbers (not rough estimates from outside companies) for previous years.B) Proof that Google had $23 billion in App revenues in 2014 yet somehow refused to break it out in their financial statements. My premise is that Google has paid out $7 billion to developers IN TOTAL up to the end of 2014, not $7 billion in 2014 alone.
 Still waiting for previous years numbers. And the market share numbers. I'm also curious. Since Google charges the same 30% as Apple, then to pay out $7 billion means they would have had to record $23 billion in revenues. Yet nowhere in their financial earnings calls for 2014 did I ever see Google make mention of these billions in revenue. In fact, Google Play Store revenues are included in the "other" category, which in itself hasn't even hit $23 billion for all of...
Apple executives telling lies to try and cover up that Steve was a complete asshole by re-writing history and passing it off as a book.   There, got that one out of the way before the inevitable...
What do you think the market share split of iOS to Android is? Is it 80% Android and 15% iOS (like many people think)? Or is it closer to 65% Android and 35% iOS?Once you have those numbers then you find out just how much more profitable iOS is given the user base.Also interesting that for years Google never really talked about Google Play revenues. I can't even find the numbers for previous years. Maybe you have access to them?
This is a brilliant marketing move. It's irrelevant as to whether people know who Christy is. Those that do will immediately recognize her accomplishments. Those that don't will very likely want to find out who this "unknown" person is that is being featured on the website of the world's most successful tech company. The benefits go both ways. Stop thinking of it from the narrow view that Christy has to help Apple sell the Watch. Apple is also highlighting a humanitarian...
They must have a film crew on-site for the inevitable special on Discovery.
Now, GG, we all know you have a clear understanding of how Google Play Services works. Yet this is the third time (by my count) that you made a blanket statement about GPS being able to provide security updates which you later backtracked on and qualified by admitting it can't update everything.   Since you know how GPS works, and you CONTINUE to post blanket statements that IMPLY that GPS is still providing support to older Android versions, then one can only assume you...
