Of course, there is good reason to be skeptical of this claim. A post from Universe Today (http://www.universetoday.com/89933/special-relativity-may-answer-faster-than-light-neutrino-mystery/), seems to indicate that OPERA may not have taken certain things into account in their measurements. Something about the relativistic motion of the GPS clocks. I'm not a Physicist, so I won't claim to understand fully all of the data. but I agree that independent checks are crucial.

I think that's a perfectly fair statement. I think my perspective comes from not caring about which manufacturer produces my device, Android versus iOS isn't really interesting. when I shop for a product I proceed as I suggested -- on a piece by piece basis. I really like a lot of the Android hardware, and I am a supporter of open standards and open source... however, I also think that Apple's "Walled Garden" makes for a much cleaner and integrated final product -- so an actual decision won't come until I actually have money to vote with.

Seriously, there's 24 smartphones listed on their website. Anyways, it seems to me that if you sell more than two or three phones at a time your company will appeal to a broader user base... reminds me of that saying, "if you throw enough shit at a wall, some of it is bound to stick". The Bloomberg link does talk about the fact that Samsung has been smart to carry such a diverse lineup of phones, I agree the broad selection is attractive, and that's likely the key factor at play. How would the numbers play out if we compared on a phone by phone basis... Galaxy Nexus to the iPhone 4, or Galaxy II thingy to the iPhone 4S
