Engagement, affluence, and value: The numbers Apple's using to show Android is #2

It's commonplace now for an Apple event keynote to include a slide or two pointing out Google's struggle to get tablet-optimized versions of Android apps, or charts highlighting iOS' higher web usage share than Android's. It makes sense. They're numbers that are hugely in Apple's favor, unlike the raw marketshare numbers that so often consume the popular narrative these days.

In a piece on The Atlantic, excerpts from Fred Vogelstein’s Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War and Started a Revolution, illustrate what happened next:

Google Executive Chairman provides a public guide for 'his friends' on switching from iPhone to Android

Eric Schmidt, former Apple board member and current Google executive chairman, has taken a few moments to write up a Google+ guide for "his friends" on switching from iPhone to Android.
