[OT] iPhone is for games, Android is for apps.

If you read the original xyologic article that was quoted by Good Morning Silicon Valley they write, "91,500,00" as the number of Android apps downloaded in Nov. 2011.  They use that 'number' twice in the article.

I wonder if they meant 9 million or 91 million. A missing trailing zero or misplaced commas?

The ratio of 9 million to 25 million app downloads is similar to the ratio of 33 million to 71 million quoted for game downloads.
If they actually meant 9, that throws the article's thesis into doubt, since the ratio difference between platforms would largely vanish.
