The biggest issue with Windows 8 is how Ballmer and company crudely bolted on the Metro UI and desktop users have to jump through hoops to get around it.  It would be like if Apple updated OS X to show the iOS like Launchpad on boot up and you had to run a Finder app to get the normal desktop back.  Having used Win 8 for months, it's still very annoying.   
At the airport I work at, there's a ton of visitors from Europe and South America - I'd think all the legions of Android users from outside the USA would want to use that free airport Wi-Fi, eh?  I guess like somebody mentioned, maybe the Android users don't use airplanes and take a bus instead.  
This story and the chart doesn't seem to square with the previous story about Samsung doubling Apple on iPhone shipments.  Samsung show barely any growth to Apple's 15% but gosh darn it, Samsung/Google are winning on shipments and activations.  
BTW AI, have you thought about doing some investigative journalism on these fantastical claims by Samsung/Google?  I work at a major airport in Florida and when running a simple network scan on the free Wi-Fi service, it invariably shows about 90% connections from Apple devices vice anything else.  Where are all these Android phones hiding?
Err AI, shipments versus sold?  Apples to Oranges?  At any rate, other than seeing tech pundits like Leo Laporte shilling for the Galaxy S III, I've only seen one in the wild.  Where's the hordes of crowds who bought and carry it around?  
AI, I was reading on CNET how this happened; to quote, "This error is rooted in the problem in which Apple prematurely opened its up-to-date program earlier this week. The up-to-date program was live for a few hours before Apple took it down, and during that time the program issued a number of redemption codes to those who had applied...If you have this problem and cannot get your free update to Mountain Lion, then for now, wait. Apple is apparently aware of the issue...
Some clown on the Apple discussion forum blamed the problem on Tim Cook; he rushed out Mountain Lion to cover-up for the 'poor' earnings call.  LMAO, the trolls never cease to amaze.  Get a grip - you'll get your Mountain Lion.  
The title should be re-worded to "Apple disappoints clueless investor pundits while making huge profits"  
If anybody has just installed from the App Store, is it build 12A269?  
Of course, I use Windows and I have two different security suites to try and keep out the countless number of worms and viruses that are created nearly everyday for the MS platform.  But to suggest that iOS is insecure because it might be used as a conduit to transmit a Windows virus is absurd and I certainly don't want iOS to be bloated with Windows AV scanners.
