Google While Microsoft is unveiling all about Windows Phone 8, Google ruined the party a little bit by 'leaking' all about Android 4.2, the Nexus 10 tablet, and the new Nexus phone, the LG Nexus 4. There's some pretty awesome stuff in here from Google - except for the fact the devices themselves are kind of ugly.

Don't fool yourself. Apple is in advertising as well. Just cause you shell out a sh%t ton of money doesn't mean they aren't doing the same analytics on your usage and data.


Big difference between being in advertising and your entire business model depending on it. The lions share of Apple's profits comes from hardware and one would hope that they will be smart enough not to endanger those profits by alienating people with intrusive adverts. I think they do get it. Just look at a mac compared to a PC out of the box. Any consumer PC is riddled with advertisements and shitty trialware software out of the box, while a mac is clean.

That said I would prefer if they were not in advertising at all.

Three is nothing to prove that Apple isn't any more or less evil than Google other than crack pot ideas about pricing of devices.


And yet people seem to believe Google's hilarious "do no evil" motto.
