I love that Google is building its own mini ecosystem on the iPhone. Most of the apps and services are better than what Apple makes.
Also, people don’t like sedans because they don’t have a saddle.
Only 25% of Android devices are running Jelly Bean. Gingerbread is still the most popular version, and it’s two and a half years old.
Apple is getting mighty Google-y with its ads.
Good one from my colleague Jay Yarow. And he uses, you know, real data.
Interesting: Many wanted to speak anonymously because they thought they’d be Apple’s next target.
I’ll give you the bullshit answer first. It’s great if Apple comes into the market. It reinforces our vision and will bring more awareness to what we are doing.
Now here’s the honest answer: Apple can suck a lot of oxygen from any space they enter. If and when that moment comes in our market, we will have to rethink some things.

Yet it remains a feature found only on iPhone and other Apple products.
