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.

They do? Odd, I have never seen any of that, on my Android devices or elsewhere. So I don't think Google has broken E-Mail.

Then again, if you sign up for a free service from a ad company. You should not be surprised if they give you ads. Personally I don't like giving such a company full access to my E-mails. I solve that issue the same way you can solve your problem, simply use another E-mail provider.
