you could be right. we'll see!
i agree it's the small core group of fandroids that buy Nexus products to get the latest OS version - "early adopters" that will pay a premium price for this. but i disagree they are important. the "Android marketplace" is the cheap commodity tablets/phones of the world, and they are  a fraction of 1% of that market, which is motivated by price, not by the "latest and greatest" OS. at best, they are beta testers.
OMG, i see i've opened AI to a droid invasion!
well, he put Siri down hard too. but he's keeping the Air 2 anyway.
ah - Nexus 9: ProsIt runs Android 5.0 and will receive timely OS updates from Google. Lollipop is nice, it's pretty, and it adds a lot of cool new features to Android for users and developers alike. For a Nexus device, the screen is pretty good. Not amazing, but totally respectable. It's just the right size to type on. I think 8.9" is the sweet spot for software keyboards, at least for my hands. A better Gmail experience, better notification handling, multi-user support,...
ah, i just read the Nexus 9 tab review at Android Police from the link posted here. here is its summary:   Nexus 9: Pros It runs Android 5.0 and will receive timely OS updates from Google.

OMG, the good ol' "i didn't get my butt kicked because ... i wasn't really trying!" rationalization. sure, Google's PR is that the Nexus line are just "pure Android" prototypes, or "flagship" products, and so their success is not measured by sales. and it rotates them among its so-called Open Handset Alliance OEM's to share that prestige among them without favoritism. but if strong consumer demand for the Nexus tabs were really there, it's horseshit to claim the OEM...
more than that, you can continue to use your "club" cards (or phone # ID) with ApplePay just like you do now at supermarkets, discount stores, etc. BEFORE the clerk totals your bill. even coupons. that gives the retailer the basic info they want, always has, just not all the extra financial info CurrentC requires from you too. all those who ignore this simple factoid, as if ApplePay means getting no store discounts at all, are just plain stupid or wilful liars. ApplePay...
Ha! it's CurrentC that is going to "expire" in months, not years. it's already DOA.
well this thread is epic.   but the ultimate point, IMHO, is the CEO/leader of the most important company in world, Tim Cook, is gay.   take that, bigots everywhere on earth.   there are still some bigger companies. but oil ... really, leadership? no. addiction, yes.   and make no mistake, Apple is now Tim's company and vision (much evidence proves this). respectfully, Steve is history that is over.   Apple is the most important company in the world because it...
