quote: Beyond the bullshit is a bit of truth. Android is outselling iOS nearly 4:1 but in browser usage statistics the iPhone is being used nearly twice as much as Android. Read those numbers again. Nearly 4 times as many devices but half as much usage?
quote: Surprise! Android has a nearly 2:1 lead in web usage over iOS, and its lead is growing. In other words, more people use iOS to access the web. But most of those are just random and infrequent page visits. The hardcore web users who do a lot of frequent surfing are on Android. If you combine the overall site visits and unique visitor stats, yes nearly twice as many iOS users browse the web as Android users. But the average Android user who actually uses the web browser does almost 4x as much browsing as the average iOS user.

quote: Gartner conducted a survey recently of 726 tablet owners in the U.S., Australia, and the U.K., and what it learned, first and foremost, is tablet users love their entertainment. According to the study, 50% of device screen time was spent playing games; watching live or streamed TV, videos and movies reading books; or listening to music. Using tablets and other mobile devices like smartphones for communicating -- sending emails and visiting social media sites, for example -- averaged only 26% of users' time. Being productive, which Gartner describes as editing videos or writing, accounted for a mere 15% of users' activity. And finally, searching for information like the weather or conducting research occupied all of 9% of device screen time.
quote: Cook added that he doesn't see Android as just one entity competing against Apple. Rather, the operating system is so fragmented that many users are running versions as old as Gingerbread from three years ago.

quote: “Does a unit of market share matter if it’s not being used? For us, it matters that people use our products. We really want to enrich people’s lives, and you can’t enrich somebody’s life if the product is in the drawer.”
quote: But Cook brushes this off, saying that customers tend to buy Android devices and dump them in a drawer while an iPhone is the smartphone they truly use.
