I'm thinking it was the early adapter "sticky" phenomena . Two advanced economies with customer money available to jump into the only "new" technology. And, like tv or your parking spot, you resist changing in the future once you have it.Interesting that the "Steve Jobs Distortion Field" seems strongest in many of the English language countries. Japan seems to be bucking the trend by not embracing Android.
This is a snapshot statistic. The moving data is represented by other charts and graphs from other survey organizations. When more than two sources are consulted, the statistics will be wildly different somehow. I'm always staggered by the breadth of statistics regarding web browser usage.The one thing the chart does not show is that Apple's share, according to recent statistics, is shrinking.
It's their margins. They are flat in the high margin iPhone and looking for growth in the low margin, cutthroat media and resale business.Since Apple is one of, if not the most successful companies around, I think they will do just fine with whatever direction they decide to go with. If you look at the history of Apple, it isn’t the new tech/market, it is refining or improving an existing tech/market.
So who to believe is doing it right? Apple with a proven track record? Or an anonymous poster in a forum?

Apple has announced Apple TV+ will be available on non-Apple devices, even including Samsung Smart TVs and Roku & FireTV streaming boxes though the Apple TV App. I'm curious to see if this actually happens.If they require Apple hardware to any significant level, they're starting with one or more hands (and maybe a foot) tied behind their back.
I'm thinking it must happen for Apple to successfully enter the streaming market (especially on the Roku) but will it be the same experience and will it represent the ecosystem slipping away.I'm curious to see if this actually happens.
