Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

If you frequent Apple fanboi related sites, which I suspect you do, you have fallen to this issue of misrepresenting facts and clinging to numbers that are barely have any meaning outside of a small number of users.

Android install base is not significantly larger than an iOS install base. Both should be about 500mil by now, with a margin of error of no more than 15%. Total app revenues are barely known, as only Apple's revenues can be counted up. And there are stories on both sides of massive piracy and massive profits, that don't support any death threats to any platform.

And then there's this BS that comes from nowhere:
"The iOS ecosystem is healthy, the Android ecosystem is surprisingly anaemic.

Both ecosystems are healthy and active.
"

Every metric I have ever seen from multiple sources (none of which are your bizarre imaged 'fanboi' sites) says the same thing: Android users actually use their Android phones as a platform to do things much, much less than iOS users. Given the weight of evidence I would have thought this is not a very controversial thing to say. I could trawl the web for data links but do I really need to,?
