  In raw numbers the Play store has caught up, but the quality of many of those apps is suspect. This is more true of the Play store than the iOS store.   Further, while any app can run on the iPad with scaling, many of the apps in the play store won't install on the Nexus 7. For example, I can't install Washington Post or USA Today on my Nexus 7, but they work great on my Galaxy Nexus.   New app development generally seems to occur on iOS first, and then move to Android...

Did you never use AppleTV, with its performance problems? Have you forgotten the original iPod, with its atrocious...
  Hmm, have you forgotten Snow Leopard already? An OS release which main function was to remove bloat and increase the performance of MacOS X.
What have you read? Mainly appleinsider?   It is generally true that judges have a better understanding of technology, than nerds have of the law.   And it goes without saying that Posner has a better understanding of the law than anyone commenting on this thread.
  Romney's tax rate is a result of the lower tax rate applied to capital gains, not overseas tax shelters.   But your larger point is valid. That anybody (or any company) who follows the law should not be lambasted for following the laws. It's particularly rich when the complaint comes from a member of congress. The body solely responsible for the ridiculously complex structure of our tax system.
