Adsnoids you mean?
Correction, Microsoft Office: apologizing bad programming since 1984.
 I think SJ would disagree with you, he recognize very early the indissociable nature of the hardware and the software to make great things. The original apple got is success due to its ROM full softwares and tools or the greatly simplify disk drive controller with uses of clever software. Look at the original Macintosh, who could boot a fully illustrated OS and Apps with 128KB of ram without any special hardware or coprocessor, there is a lots of software cleverness under...
This make me remember an old news many years ago, someone sued its RV mfg because he had an accident when he wrongly taught he could leave the wheel to take a nap at the back while his RV can drive its self on the cruise control.
 I agree, under IBM supervision the thinkpad has been one of the best product line of the PC laptop market, this is the reason why I think most Lenovo profits is still coming from PC making and not their mobiles product. But ever since they cut all connection with IBM, they become more and more ACER or Dell alike. 
 Apple is making more profits from the iTunes Store than selling Macintosh hardware… Besides apps, music, books and movies-tv show accounts for a big part of Apple profits.   The iTunes music store alone sales more music than any retail music store on the planet. I do agree, most people don't buy, they want every things for free.  This is what's killing Android as a profitable platform for third party developments. 
 I don't find anything smart about Lenovo, starting by getting the actor Ashton Kutcher as a product engineer.  BTW where are you getting your numbers from? I don't think phone product got anything about to do in Lenovo's revenue.
 Wait, this is not the sole raison d'être of the Android platform? To offer a lower cost smartphone alternative of iOS and M$ phones? I fail to see how Lenovo can compete with other low margin phones mfg like HTC, Samsung, LG and all nameless Chinese copycats. 
 You've missing a lot about all the software tech infused into iOS, where iOS is a full desktop class OS minus filesystem access, Android is more like an evolution of Symbian OS with runtime environment based on a JVM.
Samsung can produce an 8 cores ARMv8 SoC if they want, but since they are not a software shop they can't go alone without Google.   Android is a least 6 month behind Apple to 64 bit transition, we still yet to see how they would manage it considering their heterogenous development platform.
