You think Google needs apple, no they don't android is dominating iPhone, Windows phone, Rim (Samsung is buying Rim) and others. Samsung, Motorola, HTC, Huwei, and ZTE all have to pay 25% to Google for market shares. IPhone gets money from sueing Google that's what they're good at. You think iPhone is so good then get a benchmark app and tell me your score it will probably be in the 2000s which is hardcore crap when I benchmark my phone and get 13000. Apple die hards. You say androids lag, but it really doesn't after dual core came out. My phone doesn't have to be underclock to 800 MHz. Also I have 4g lte which you don't have. Stop hating on android.

Google are in direct competition with Apple. If they are developing a separate app for iOS 6 it's gonna be awful compared to the Android one.. This could work out well in Google's favor.

This shows that most of their revenue comes from ads and marketing. And since mobile ads are more profitable and apple has a higher market do the math. He is right...Google needs Apple.

Don't know why some ppl over here want to make some stories and drama between Apple and Google! Apple don't have anything against Google and they're still friends since Steve Jobs. Apple has a drama against Samsung cause Samsung stole some Apple copyright, in fact Google warren Samsung to stop stolen Apple copyright.

google only makes money through ads and the search engine. it barely makes 1% from Android. Practically all of Google's money from mobile systems comes from Apple not android.

GSMArena aint doing their research before posting their articles nowadays. I dunno if u guys know that there is no licensing issue in using a Youtube app becoz Google has released it open source. Which means any developer can use the source code to create any app that streams Youtube for free. The ONLY reason why Apple removed the app was that it was hugely unpopular and it was horrible compared to the Android version. So Apple thinks its better that Google release their own app on its App store. Catch up GSMArena
