Re: New iPhone, iPad and "iTV" first half of 2013?

How is Apple a market leader when it has 1/5th the market that Android has? That in itself is the problem, shrinking market share...

As great as Apple is, they're unable to keep up with android OS.

There is one model iPhone each year in two colors. (insert storage changes)

There are hundreds of Androids phones. No single Android phone has a market dominance as a single iPhone model.

Due to sheer numbers "Android" has a large market share. Each individual phone is just a drop in the bucket. iOS only runs on iPhones.

Not to argue, but Apple is selling 3 different models, (4, 4S and 5) and two different colours and in different storage capacities (for 5 only). We'll leave it at 3 since storage isn't everything and colour means nothing.

That said, Samsung Galaxy 3S appears to be shipping (shipping, not sales) more so than the iPhone 5.

Not that I'd buy a Samsung...I'm holding out for a better iPhone or BB10 if it is as good as RIM hope it is.

The problem with the Android market remains the fragmentation due to the various flavours of Android OS out there that have to be accounted for when writing code.

Sure Android moved a bigger number of units than Apple, but that's because everybody and their cousin can grab a version of the OS, slap together a phone using it and *bang* they outnumber Apple.

Meanwhile Apple has (for the most part) a single supported flavour of its OS through a common portal (iTunes) and none of the cruftware that is endemic on most carrier supplied Android devices.

android doesn't make money, its sheer reason for existence is for giving google a vessel to mine your personal data

Right....so when I add an app through android it shows me all the permissions the app is looking for ie Internet access etc yet Apple doesn't show that?

Settings -> Privacy

Pretty sure by default it's set to not. Within the apps you need to grant permission.

Right?

Actually right now the Galaxy S3 is this years best selling smartphone with over 30 million sales.

30 million for a 5 month old phone is commendable.

Let's check back in 6 months with the iPhone 5.

Trickier than that: Settings>>About>>Advertising (bottoms of the screen!)>>Limit Ad Tracking

Set that to ON. It's OFF by default, which probably is NOT what you want.

Oops, missed a screen: Settings>>General>>About>>Advertising (bottom of screen)>>Limit Ad Tracking

Sorry about that (screenshot wouldn't help I don't think but having the full path to the screen should! Let me know if not).
