Google "As an online discussion about iOS vs. Android grows longer, the probability of someone bringing up this link approaches 1." The argument goes that before the iPhone, Android looked like a BlackBerry clone, and after the iPhone, it suddenly turned into an iOS clone. While this argument, with its pictures, is snappy and easily digestible, it doesn't actually seem to be supported by the facts.

Apple's main revenue stream is devices. Services like the App Store, iTunes store and iCloud are merely ways to integrate these devices and make them work better so they become more appealing to customer.


Apple's main revenue stream is exorbitantly priced devices, vendor lock-in, and forced upgrades. You're naive if you think Apple has your best interests at heart and not the almighty dollar. It's a corporation not your girlfriend.
