Remember how Microsoft used to lie? About vapourware (Cairo!) and all that shilling they bought from Gartner etc? And how they were found guilty of dishonest practices (but were then hardly punished for it)?

 

Get out too?

using your methodology then Apple need to get out of the eBook arena as currently, pending appeal, they are guilty of dishonest practice's.
Apart from fan sites the average person doesn't give a monkeys about the behaviour of differing companies unless it taps into their own prejudices and can give legitimacy to them.

And the bouncing that goes back and forth between:

1. Android is a stolen product that has cost Apple billions

2. Android is a failure that accounts for no sales other than cheap toys and "I have never seen Android tablets in the wild; they are always gathering dust and acting as doorstops in Costco/Best Buy or sold as cheap kids toys at Toys-R-US"

 

Here is some reality: actual Android tablet sales data based on app installations (which Android users do not buy).

 

http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2013/01/kindle-fire-nabs-33-of-android-tablet-market-nexus-7-just-8/

Kindle has 1/3 of the Android market in the U.S. With Fire TV, that will increase. Amazon is probably now the main Android player.

Nook is #2 at 10% of the market.

Samsung is indeed a flop at 9%, meaning that their money from Android is basically coming from their (soon to be emulated by Apple) phablets.

Nexus is 8%, a bit below Samsung despite Google not putting anywhere near the marketing push behind their phones and tablets (yet, they will start in 2015) as they do other products like the Chromecast and Chromebooks (which incidentally are selling heavily).

But note that this study has a sample size of 500 million unique Android devices.

 

... and yet hardly any of them ever show up online.

 

Remarkable.

Another Apple internal doc submitted to, this one showing carriers beginning to limit iPhone sales due to costs.

 

Nothing new.

 

Carriers have always pushed Android the iWare for one reason or another: they cost more, they can't control the platform, Apple won't let them load them down with crapware . . . 

 

And Apple is squeezing them hard because it wants more sales of iWare to go through the Apple stores.

 

The problem that the carriers have is that people want an iPhone, but they settle for an Android. It's not an ideal situation for them.
