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.

Please take into account that other parts of the world exist beyond the US.

The last, and only Apple computer I saw in my country was 15 years ago.

*Some* people have iPads and iPhones over here (so I was told, never seen it personally). Believe me, iOS market share is nearly non-existent down here (its Android all over it).

Of course. iOS is larger by a significant margin than any mobile operating system... including android.

I'm not talking about an Apple computer. Why are you bringing this up?

Im not talking anecdotal evidence as you did. I'm talking both market share and usage share... worldwide. iOS is larger than any other mobile operating system.

iOS isn't larger by any measure. It's used more to browse websites.

And just like claiming that iOS devices should be counted as PCs, you are making a statement full of deceit.

There are plenty of iPads and iPhones down here, iOS is more popular than ever.

Yeah, Android rules the cheap phone market but Apple owns the high end market. I think that happens everywhere.

Regarding your Mac bashing comments, I'm posting this with a Mac and there are lots of Mac users (much more than 15 years ago that's for sure). But It's the same story... low end market is ruled by PCs but the high end +$1000 market is 100% Macbook.

Since my T430s is well into the over $2000 category, that "high end +$1000 market is 100% Macbook" statement is pulled out of your a**.
