Scoreboard, Samsung: it's about the customer experience. Fool an Android customer once. You get the customer-experience you pay for.
Fragmentation is a problem for developers and customers, both.
  Look at the game tape.  Apple's NEVER been that company.  Look at the scoreboard: Last quarter Apple sold more iPhone 5's than Samsung sold Galaxy S IIIs.  Apple also sold more iPhone 4 than Samsung sold Galaxy S IIIs.  They have competition, yes, but this isn't a new phenomenon.   Broadly speaking, Apple's major achievements over the past 30 years include Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, iPad.  Four major product lines in three decades.  The last three of which came in the...
