 That's all well and fine, but analysts want 200%. That's impossible, of course. But until Apple complies, $GOOG can do no wrong  - despite its shrinking margins, $15b loss on Motorola, the revelation that Microsoft is making more money of of Android than Google itself, etc.
Yes. I figured that was implied when I said it was nearly identical =)
No one's going to mention the Microsoft Empowers Super Bowl ad? It's nearly identical.   Guessing we'll see the making-of video any day now. Did they use Lumias? :-)
 Bromwich won't make the same mistake again.  Word has it that Bromwich already cleared out his calendar to ensure he's free on several important dates (and charged Apple for the privilege of doing so): the Apple holiday office party, Cook's birthday, Ive's birthday, Apple dividend distributions, the judge's case-settlement anniversary bash in St Moritz, etc.
App parity...I'm not convinced that it's been fully realized, but it's coming. What Analyst/Critics like Munster (not a fan) ALWAYS miss is the customer-service factor. Apple's (1) retail stores and (2) customer service philosophy is a killer advantage when considering the device life cycle.
Google's BOD is equally not "diverse" depending on the yardstick. Same goes for Amazon.   Let's play "Beat the Apple Horse". What will critics criticize Apple for next? Come to think of it, there's not much left, is there?
Where did the Apple hate come from? Check out the game tape. The hate started in 1976.
 In reality, that's exactly what Apple _has_ been doing with Siri all along*. Siri is a search engine, albeit not one built the way traditional "search" has been executed to this point. Instead, Siri's search model is modular. Apple can and will continue to plug in whatever relevant search-related service they find beneficial to the service going forward. *Siri searches Apple's properties (iOS, iTunes, the App Store, Maps, etc) and the Web at large (Twitter, Facebook,...
This is a Siri play. It will be added to Siri's functionality and will appeal to the demographic that searches Twitter more often than they search Google.   I'm a bit surprised that Twitter didn't pick up Topsy. They have a history of buying Twitter-related services (beginning with the first Twitter search engine) and now they have more money than Roosevelt. Topsy seems like a natural fit...unless Twitter is already marketing their own analytics package.
Just enough is more. According to so many, Apple's technology "under delivers". Yet moments like these are made "easy", fluid, possible on Apple's products. This galls critics (wall street and tech press) to no end. Perhaps that's because they don't pay close enough attention to what people are doing with iOS and OS X...they're just looking for the bright shinny object.
