In the News "According to the CONTEXT data, Android tablets now account for 61.2 percent of the Western European tablet market, more than double the 25.1 percent recorded the same time last year. Apple iOS devices, meanwhile, fell to 37.2 percent of Western European tablet market sales by distribution, from 71.2 percent at the same time last year." This is nothing short of a catastrophic collapse of iPad market share in Europe. Furthermore, "This analysis also screens out the effect of Windows 8, credited in some quarters with helping to drive increased tablet market share and cut into Appleā€™s tablet lead, but in fact with little to no impact, according to CONTEXT." And yes, Windows 8 on tablets is a dud.

Google just did something that is out of line, forcing E-mail ads on us in our Inboxes. Even if you hide the damn things, they do not get hidden from your iMap account (and that is how I use my Gmail). Since they've gone this far, who knows how much further they will go? Push ads (hell, some apps on Android already do that). Forced ads? This is getting out of hand and I for one am done supporting Google in any way, shape, or form. I'll stick with my iOS devices until something more open that is not run by an advertising company comes along. I don't approve of things Apple has done but, to me, they're a lot less annoying than Google has become. Goodbye Google; there's only so much a guy can take.
