Android’s Dirty Secret: Shipping Numbers Are Strong But Returns Are 30-40%
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Techcrunch/~3/PRDQPyHqpWA/

Completely disagree with the premise of the article. I am curious if you surveyed with those who returned how many still bought an Android phone. Given that the iPhone only comes out once a year people don't return it often to get the next one. If any are like me, they may try an Android phone and decide that they want the next rumored device instead. The assumption that the exclusive reason is the OS (and even Blackberry envy?!?) is ridiculous.

Google+ is a sharing platform versus a communication platform (Shout Out to This Week In Google for helping with the argument).

It will take time for those who are passionate about direct communication to find a way to do it here. Where Google+ thrives in its innate ability to easily share content with others. For the adoption rate to continue, the more sharing needs to occur.

While there certainly is the ability to communicate easily (see Huddles and Hangout), you don't see the ease of use in 'posting on someones wall' as you do with other tools. What you do see is encouragement to share (see share bar above and sparks topic starters). Circles allows you to share (and for you to read) what you want (Easily review your family updates in the morning and your college friends updates throughout the day)

The tool is still in beta and has lots of room to grow but when you focus on what it can and should be used for, it highlights the potential. Invite, Enjoy, Share...
