 Make up your mind, you don't even know where I am!
My 5S has suffered a couple of weird freezes recently, normally in Safari.  Clears up after 30 seconds or so, but always seems to happen at the most annoying times.
If Apple's own numbers are reliable, then it looks like it's probably more like Amazon sell 2-3 times as many as Apple: http://gigaom.com/2013/06/12/apple-we-have-20-percent-of-the-u-s-ebook-market/ I'd still say that douses the idea that the iPad is the iPod of the ebooks market pretty thoroughly.
In an alternate universe Apple released an Apple TV SDK four years ago when they switched it to iOS.  How great that alternate universe must be now.
If only Apple took it seriously.  It still has an underclocked A5 processor, right?
It's probably just an effect created from combining the textures from a few different photos.  The photos will likely be taken at different times of the day, so blending the colours will normalise them, and might make them seem a bit washed out, creating the cobwebby effect.
Ignore him, it looks like he's making a pedantic point that requires you to read "popular" as pertaining to customer sat, instead of volume of sales.  Which isn't the common understanding, the popular kids at school are the ones that have the most friends, not the ones that have the closest knit group of best friends.
Lots of smart TVs have those apps too, so I don't see how it can be an issue with the channels, must be that Apple don't want them to do it, or haven't got round to it yet - I suspect they're focusing on channels that are either US only, or can be provided internationally.  More than a bit annoying.
Getting Kindle sales numbers certainly isn't the easiest task, which is why I said estimates.   Seeking Alpha says ~20m, including the Fires: http://seekingalpha.com/article/2084763-estimating-the-value-of-kindle-hardware-sales-for-amazon BusinessWeek said ~8m in 2010, before the Fire was released: http://www.teleread.com/ebooks/kindle-sales-figures-leak-beats-analyst-estimates-by-60/   I'm sticking a finger in the wind and saying ~10m, or on that order of magnitude,...
If you can't see the difference between quantifiable and categorical claims that can be proved or disproved, and the naivety of a blindly trusting a multinational corporation to do what it says it will do, which cannot be "proved" in any meaningful way, then I don't know what to say.  I'd offer "we can agree to disagree" but your position of being scared by people not being so naive is so ridiculous I don't think I could stomach that.
