Yes, as you rightly point out LucianA's logic is utterly absurd. Here's another example". He says:
"Even now there are 300 million Android devices and about 350 million iOS devices, but since Android is growing about twice as fast, it should surpass it soon. Same for the apps."
Therefore there are only 50m more iOS devices than Android or 16.7% more.
* But According to Google's own testimony to Congress, two thirds of Google mobile searches come from iOS devices.
* According to the article, Apple's revenue from Apps is $4.9 billion: that's more than 14.5 times Android's revenue of just $0.34 billion.
Evidence is mounting that the countless billions of dollars that Google have wasted in creating Android and in the process betraying Steve Jobs' trust and alienating Apple and misleading consumers with its dysfunctional, fragmented copy-cat rip-off of iOS, will come to be recognised as one of the greatest mistakes in corporate history.
This article may signal time to short Google.
