Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

It just goes to show you... People buy an Android device to have a smart phone, People buy an iOS device to use a smart phone.

Considering the disparity in #'s alone. the fact that iOS has such a commanding lead in on-line usage is embarrassing to Android. it means the average person who buys an android does not use it on line! Probably because they are intimidated. While people buy an iOS device because it ... wait-for-it...."JUST WORKS!" ;)

As an OSS user for coming up on 20 years now, I'm really disappointed in the Android ecosystem.
