Point is Apple is marketing a device. Google is marketing an operating system. Apple lost its' dominance with Mac to Microsoft with Windows which did the SAME thing Google is doing with Android. It is about form factor, features and carrier of choice. All of this Android can offer and Apple can't. So the comparison of the entire line of Android devices vs. just the iPhone is completely valid in this circumstance. As for the craziness... well that speaks for itself. It is all about Apple's marketing and hype. They do a very good job at selling what is best described as a mediocre product at a premium price. Now though the tables are turning and the consumer, as can be seen, has a choice and they are speaking with their wallets and the choice they are making more often than not is an Android handset.
