MG Siegler on Android’s money making ability compared to Apple’s iOS:
Google’s best shot to turn Android into a business with iPhone-like profits would be to create an Android-powered oil rig and get drilling.
As Siegler states, it doesn’t seem silly to think that one day Android will make Google money, but it does seem silly to even imagine them making iOS like profits from Android. I think this is going to become a major problem for investors as they sit and watch Apple rake in the cash. Moreover it will be hard for Google to show a direct link from Android to profits — Android seems to be set up to indirectly profit Google and I think that will make it pretty hard to justify to Wall Street.
