In comparison, Apple activates an average of 275,000 devices per day while Android lags behind still with an average of 200,000 per day. Apple boasts a app store container 300,000+ apps, over three times that of which Android has in it's app marketplace. Jobs also explained how the company feels about the differences Android and Apple have in approach to their mobile devices saying "[w]e think Android is very, very fragmented, and becoming more fragmented by the day". The fragmenting that Jobs is referring to is the fact that Android's open approach has created over 100 variations of the Operating System making app development more difficult and prone to incompatibility issues and lack of support on the lesser used Android models. Being a Droid user myself, I've felt the burn of being on what seems like an already outdated HTC Eris platform, but this feeling for the most part comes from HTC's reluctance took make updates for their first Android child while they focus on the Droid Incredible.
This year's innovative release of the iPad attracted over 3million consumers in less than 3 months looking to own one for business, art, or even just for gaming. Mobile device manufactures frantically struggle to release competing tablet devices but, according to Steve Jobs, will fail. "[A]lmost all of them use 7-inch screens, as compared to iPad's near 10-inch screens.", Jobs claims, "The screen measurements are diagonal, so that a 7-inch screen is only 45 percent as large as iPad's 10-inch screen". On top of this, Android urges manufactures to hold off from jumping in on the market until next year's release of a Android platform designed specifically for tablet devices.

Some tips from me to you:
- Be sure you have anti-virus software on your computer.
- Be sure that your anti-virus software is actually activated, working, and up-to-date.
- Links on Facebook are not always actually posted by friends. Be very cautious any time you follow someone's link.
- YouTube and Facebook is not likely to ask you to update, download, or enable anything if its already been working for you.
- If something seems suspicious, its probably for a good reason. Check the URL to be sure you're really where you think you are.
- Anytime you are prompted for a password, look at the URL to be sure you're not being Phished.
- If a anti-virus software comes up that you don't recognize, its likely malware and your Anti-Virus has failed. Shut down your computer and call your Geek.
- Websites offering free scans of your computer are 99% of the time a BAD idea.
- If your email or Facebook gets " "hacked" " (more likely Phished), change your password and check your account settings for traces the intruder left.
- Passwords should be 8 characters or longer, have more than just letters. More importantly to your security is to be sure you follow #6. Phishing is getting too common.
