Seems like a pretty bad argument to develop for Android.
You sure are lucky that you will have a place to hide a year from now when even the profitability metrics have turned against Apple. I can hear you now: "sure they only have 25%of the tablet market, but they make 40% of the profits". Both numbers will only decline further over time.
Standing at the beach and shouting won't stop the tide from coming in. And it seems that the new Apple management is only capable of managing a slow decline from the top, not a new push to higher levels.
