Perhaps you have a very different understanding of trolling than most internet users. Is it that Apple fans don't troll, or it's not trolling if the majority of the members wouldn't take the bait?

Google didn't release Android to make money. In fact, Google has released many programs that lose money. Google in general, is not in it to make money. They manage information, and create technology. Much of what they do they make open source.

The advertising bit is simply the 'necessary' result of making everything free, not their 'raison d'être'. They've constantly given the middle finger to their investors, and somehow still constantly grow.

Android's entire reason for existence is to become the new computing paradigm. To replace PCs, servers, etc... Google has also recently announced version 1 of their own programming language, 'Go'. Again, a step towards a (hopefully) brighter computing future.

You can't measure Google's success in dollar terms, because that's not what they set out to do. And you can't compare iOS to Android in terms of dollars, numbers, etc... Android is beloved by many because it CAN replace a computer - I can do everything I need to do on my phone - though a few things are still somewhat clumsy.

And it's very easy to completely avoid Google services on an Android phone, and never see a Google Ad. So looking at where Google makes it's money is completely missing the point.

Yeah it's sad that the nasty elves made them add advertising to search and made them track people.

I hates the nasty elves who made Google make money.

Wait a minute? Google is not in this for the money? Really? Can anyone else support his claim, because none of it appears to line up with actual reality...

It appears I do.

What the hell are you doing using 'Urban Dictionary' as a source of reference?

Let's try something a little more up-market:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet)

"a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response"

None of which was done.

But I bet that sounds familiar, eh?
