Both things had DIRECT connections to Android. This story, and the dozens of others like it that are on this site have no direct link to iOS, at all.
And for the record (to answer someone earlier) that's why there are so many people who use Android on this site. See, AI is spending so much time trying to cover Android news that they're popping up in RSS feeds that look for Android news.

Google I/O 2011 sold out in 59 minutes! Holy moly.
It's likely to appear as a carefully crafted 15,000 treatise which will take the following form:
1. This is rubbish, here's why.
2. I/O doesn't have the same history that the WWDC has - therefore it's a passing fad.
3. Recent I/O have taken 60 and 90 days to sell out.
4. SOMETHING'S FISHY ABOUT THE NUMBERS.
5. Clearly Google are reducing the number of attendees - there's no other explanation for it. In fact, only three developers are going this year.
6. Google are being disingenious about the installed user base for android. It's a waste of developers time.
7. Some angelic bullshit about the WWDC being beyond reproach.
8. If possible, slip in some rubbish about Microsoft (perhaps some reference to the PDC)
9. Tada, please support roughlydraftedinsider.
I'm just having a sly dig, and the guy actually puts his articles together quite cogently, but they're all the same formula. Sometimes his facts are a little off, but the conclusion he reaches is often sound.
In this current story, I don't really think so. Lose a password and you're fair game. Doesn't matter which platform.
I think the most prominent suggestion, to confirm install, would prompt roars of Vista "Allow/Deny" derision on this forum. Google can't win either way; this is an Apple fan site after all.
