Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Catfight! Get out your mobile phones and start filming, because two important personalities in the mobile world just got into a catfight. After the presentation of Apple's (once again) stellar quarterly results (what's with the low iPad sales, though?), Apple's CEO Steve Jobs went on a bit of a tangent regarding Android (among other things). Google's Andy Rubin, the father of Android, responded in a pretty fun way via Twitter.

As a hardware maker, Apple can afford not to care about market share, as long as they reap big margins from each device sold (the economic model used by jewellery & mechanical watches makers); as a software vendor, they may be wrong, as app prices are stuck to the psychological 0.99$, so only sales volumes can make an app worthwhile (especially when you know how much it costs to meet Apple guidelines... http://stackoverflow.com/questions/209170/how-much-does-it-cost-to-... )
