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."

Ho hum. I am always surprised by people who profess to be interested in the tech trends and yet seem so oblivious to clear trends that are well documented. I decided to spend precisely five minutes responding to your tedious request, the results are below.

If you really want more data I suggest a few relevant Google searches, you will find a lot of interesting material about the differences between iOS and Android platform utilisation. Personally I find this difference between the platform utilisation rates, which has enormous implications, to be one of the most interesting phenomena in the modern tech world. It is clearly a well documented fact yet explaining why it is happening is very complex because I suspect it involves many different factors some of which are hard to measure. I would love to see some serious research on this question.

Here are some links for you, a 'thank you' would be nice ;)
