Android Profits Explained Mark Bergen @mhbergen thinks Android doesn't make profits. Here's how it works: Android's revenue and profits for Google are very much indirect. It's about the signals, it's about the usage behavior.

The 2 Billion people who use Android today have a gigantic positive impact on Google's Revenue and Profits today.

Android profits aren't all direct profits. It's not about the ads shown on the phone. It's about how the Smartphone (to some extent any Smartphone OS), affects that user's usage of the Internet, also on the desktop, and how that increased usage of the Web, automatically makes Google more money, directly and indirectly.
Google's business boss has the company's DNA in his veins -- and the absolute trust of Larry Page.

Google's App Bundling on Android: It's Evil (and it still being developed behind closed doors is evil too) 33 minutes 45 seconds into this linked video, +Rolfe Winkler asks a good question to +Omid Kordestani which he doesn't seem to answer.

I wonder if much is written about this issue and if ever Google has properly responded to this question well enough.

I was considering to ask this type of question to Eric Schmidt when there was Q&A at Mobile World Congress 2010 (http://armdevices.net/2010/02/22/i-interviewed-eric-schmidt-and-andy-rubin-at-mwc-off-camera-for-now-watch-eric-schmidts-keynote-video/), already back then Google had really bad I would say stupid rules about devices only from big approved brands that were allowed to ship Android with Google Marketplace (and Gmail, Gmaps, etc)

I think their bundling is evil and wrong. But I also believe it doesn't make any business sense for Google to continue doing that kind of illegal and anti-competitive app bundling on Android.

Google's GMS certification rules on Android hurts competition, it hurts companies trying to innovate, just like Wintel have been doing for decades, it slows down innovation, which is criminal I think against humanity. Surely not as bad as Wintel, but yet pretty bad.

I really hope that the EU will force Google to "break up" the practices Google has with Android. I hope that the EU will force Google to stop their bundling rules on Android, also that they will somehow force Google to work totally open source with dailies so all competitors can see all the latest developments about the future versions of Android, so that all companies can have the same chance to ship devices with newest versions of Android at the same time. It's counter-productive how Google chooses companies to get an advantage, to get months of advantage earlier access to future Android source code before it gets opened up to all of the open market.
The full Code Conference interview with Google's business boss Omid Kordestani.

Google just made $65 Billion in one day. Please invest it in new low power displays, batteries and processors! Just put up Google cash for massive hardware innovation and make it available to the Android makers! The makers (the Android brands and factories) will pay for it over time, we just need Google to invest the big money required to purchase upfront the quantities required of significant improvements at the major component suppliers to happen sooner rather than later! Quit waiting for Apple to invest first and to have Android follow! Apple doesn't have the right priorities to make technology really better for everyone!

+Nicolas Charbonnier or perhaps stated another way: Google just learned what sort of news investors like, and so might work to create more of that kind of news in the future.

I believe that's why Motley Fool is suggesting that austerity is the future of Google.

New Nintendo CEO has to simply do this:
- Next Nintendo Home Console must be ARM Powered and based on Android with 4K support. Sold at $99.
- Nintendo Phones, Nintendo Tablets must be made, with optimal game controls. Nintendo can sell millions. Don't change the default Google Android UI, just add best Nintendo gaming controls to the Phone and Tablet.
- Complete back-catalog of all Nintendo games must be released onto Google Play Games platform. Every Android/iOS device must have access to all NES/SNES/N64/GameCube/Wii/WiiU/DS/3DS games. Nintendo must release official emulators for every platform, or to at least point towards or acquire the existing best emulators and use them.
- Nintendo Subscription around $5/month (basic), $10/month (advanced) to $20/month (gamer) must give unlimited access to all games as downloads, as streaming (OnLine style), and all Nintendo games should work on any Android/iOS device, on any Smart TV, anywhere.
- Nintendo must release the best possible gamepad attachments to fit any smartphone size, any tablet size, the best possible standard Bluetooth Gamepads that work with any Android TV Set-top-bo, that works with any Smart TV.
- Full back-catalog of old Nintendo games can be updated by Nintendo to better support touch-screen gameplay, to also add online multiplayer support and perhaps even support third party controbutions for additional levels/courses, for example Super Mario Cart from SNES should get online multiplayer mode. All those updates to games come for free for subscribers.
- Embrace BitTorrent peer-to-peer and hard drive copying as a way to spread the ROMs of all Nintendo games to as many people as possible. People will subscriber to the Nintendo subscription plan to get updates, to get new games, to get multiplayer modes and etc anyway.
- Nintendo must make a deal with Google to power the Google Play Games platform and to fill it up with thousands of the worlds best games, ready for best gaming experiences emulated on all Android devices in the world.

Nintendo and anyone must agree that I am right in terms of revenue and profit nothing beats my idea:
- 100 million Google Play Games Unlimited $5/month subscribers: $6 Billion profit per year (a big part of which would go to Nintendo)
- 10 million sold Nintendo Android Phones sold at $299 (at 2x manufacturing cost): $1.5 Billion profit
- 5 million sold Nintendo Android Tablets sold at $299 (at 1.5x manufacturing cost): $1 Billion profit
- 20 million ARM Powered 4K Google Android Home Consoles sold at $99 (at near factory cost): No Loss on hardware, they make their money on the subscription
- 20 million Nintendo Gamepad add-ons for any other Smartphone/Tablet/Set-top-box/SmartTV sold at $49 each (2x manufacturing cost): $500 Million profit

I have been saying this repeatedly here on Google+ since 2011:

Think of the Sony Xperia Play, but better. And think of Nintendo instantly green-lighting that 1000s of the Nintendo classics be available right now officially with the official Nintendo Emulator on Google Play. Nintendo would be completely stupid to continue thinking this strategy would be wrong!

My strategy does not prevent Nintendo from doing the most amazing VR games, the most advanced Home Console Controllers with motion controls and etc, in fact my strategy fits perfectly with hardware and software innovation! It's just TOO STUPID to stay outside of the Android gaming revolution, Nintendo can SO EASILY be the main driving force of that gaming revolution, Nintendo can basically grab the major share of the whole smartphone/tablet/box/smartTV based gaming market. WHY should Nintendo stay out of it when they can in fact influence it so easily!

Some of the latest games will require Nintendo dual-displays, wii-motes, and other recent Nintendo-exclusive hardware, but those are mostly in the Controller designs, there is NO REASON that Nintendo controllers such as Wimotes, second-display add-on for portables, Tablet/TV sync for gameplay, all that can work with ANY Android device out there, Nintendo can EASILY be compatible with the rest of the world! That is the only way that Nintendo can be in control of the future of gaming. Just embrace and lead the Android Gaming world! No reason all Nintendo games of the last 30 years can't be compatible with ALL Android hardware out there, provide all games in a cheap Google Play Subscription package and that Nintendo can design and sell the BEST Android Gaming hardware of the future!

A ton of delicious healthy looking/tasting vegetarian-only food as an all-you-can-eat Buffet, I like the fake meats in nice sauce with fried rice, but there are tons of much more healthy Asian vegetarian things, and all the efforts you put into eating the healthy food, you can cancel by unlimited ice cream, cakes, chocolate covered fruits and soda if you want. The normal price per person is 770TWD, they close every day at 9PM.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
