+1 Roger, +1 Pierre.

On the first one, Roger, I completely agree, MORE SEAMLESS cross-platform,
more attention to Android (and Win 10, etc.) is important, even if it's
only because it says to the rest of the world "Cross-platform for realises".
I also agree with Pierre on where the investment goes.  We're doing most of
our work, right now, on iOS, so that's mostly what I'm paying folks to
extend.  I would bet that Monte is responding to demand, because if I said
"Hey, Monte, I want blah, blah, blah for Android", I would get it.  Right
now it's "Hey, I want blah, blah, blah for iOS", so, <harp strum/>, I get
blah, blah, blah for iOS.

On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
