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.

LOL. I'd actually pay to remove f*ckin Currents from my Nex7. Seems you can't remove Google apps from Google devices without rooting and flashing a Custom ROM (which I can't be bothered to do anymore).

Currents is the most bloated, resource consuming thing on my tablet. Despite turning off Currents syncing long ago (cos it slowed everything down whenever it synced) I still go to Settings -> Apps at least once a week just to double-check that Currents isn't running in the background.

It might look nice, but the Android version misbehaves like a conservative republican santorum!! Likes to stick it's face in what remaining system memory whenever it feels like it. At least the one on iOS dies when you exit it.
