Totally agree.  But wait, Apple is counting on everyone in the family or your friends/relatives will get their own ipads instead of borrowing yours.  That'll increase profits which Google doesn't care.

There is no sandboxing on Android?  Android was designed from the ground up with application sandboxing.  The Android application sandbox isolates app data and code execution from other apps!  http://developer.android.com/training/articles/security-tips.html.  The restricted multi-user setup in 4.3 takes it several notches higher.  Here's a good review of the features and what's lacking - http://techcrunch.com/2013/07/25/the-problem-with-androids-new-kid-mode/.

I do not believe that is how Apple rationalizes it. Instead, they see the iPhone as a truly personal device - i.e. we don't share phones. So iOS is a truly personal and mobile version of iOS. IPads happen to share the same OS as iPhones and therefore share the same single-owner behavior.

 

Having said that, I am sure they will consider changing this in the future.

Google doesn't care because they are in the business of selling you ads, so there is no difference whether a family views them on one device or multiple devices.

Btw, what is it with quotes here? They appear complete screwed up on my ipad (as normal text without the quotation boxes), but mine show up okay.

Edit: I spoke too soon. After editing, it screws up.
