First of all, the "contrived book market" I'm referencing is referenced by Keith Moerer from Apple in the link.  If Apple considers it to be the market, I'll go along with that. Secondly, you made up thi s"iPod of" nonsense, not me, and no, I don't think it clearly denotes what you say it denotes.  I'd say it could equally denote a brand ubiquitous in it's market, akin to Hoover or Xerox.  And in that definition, the Kindle is probably the closest thing to the iPod of...
 Wow, that's some major league delusion there.  The iPod Touch is a better ereader than a Kindle?  Are you listening to yourself? Just no. And regarding your second question, which you seem to be gearing towards an "Apple is winning" answer, that'll also be a no.  the answer is that's how they work, Amazon is a company that wants to sell content to everyone, and makes their own devices to increase the available market, and Apple is a company that wants to use content to...
This solves all the problems with Glass, which, as every geek has been squawking about, are all to do with how fashionable the plastic is.  Now no one need have any cause for complaint with Glass, because it's packaged with some trendy bug eyes.

CloudKit will help out some small iOS-onlystartup apps, but it doesn't offer anything like the scalability and flexibility of AWS, or its platform agnosticism.  It hasn't decimated anything yet, and it's unlikely it'll have a significant impact on any of the big storage providers.
 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.
