I like iOS and I agree it is far more consumer friendly than android. However, based on market surveys, android IS the dominate operating system in the smart phone market based on numerous surveys. At one time (when the 4S was delayed), android market share in the US was like 60%.

People like arcq12 (as well as android OEMs) misses the simple and basic point. Apple's strength is integration software and hardware. iOS is the most integrated software with hardware in the smartphone space.
Again, to view Apple's iOS in insolation means you don't get what Apple is doing. The reason why Apple products are user friendly is Apple understands the software needs to work with the hardware in harmony.

Anyway... I think that Good Ol' Crazy Eyes would make a pretty great CEO.

Scott Forstall is simply NOT CEO material unless he changes. One important aspect of an CEO is to get people to work together. Scott rubs other senior Apple executives in the wrong way,
