Dear Google, do not support iOS devices.....without Google iOS devices are almost nothing and Google will survive without them ... their very narrow portfolio (just iPhone + iPad) is very risky and can end in a few years....it can be just temporary fashion....iOS is copy of Android and therefore iOS will never be a technological leader:

so why to buy iOS device in a few years? For me, why to buy iOS now?

I like Apple simple and pretty design, but I never love their software and eco system :D. Especially I hate how they act in the business. I will never forget when Mr Jobs claim that Iphone 4 is bug-free with their antene, and this is because of the user holding Iphone4 in the wrong way.

2% is not a huge profit margin. It's basically supplemental. I have always contended that if Apple wants to remain proprietary to their ecosystem, Google should cease offering their services through Apple. Google would stand to make better profits off those that switch over to them for their full services.
