I do agree with you on one thing, that Apple's lawsuits are pretty lame, but that's another topic for another day. As far as the battery goes, I've owned the 4S since day one and I've had no battery issues whatsoever. I've turned off some of the location features and that made my battery life even better. Sometimes, features come at a cost (talk to just about anyone with a 4G capable phone).
And I'm not sure if they've plugged the exploit on the iPad 2 yet or not, but I would argue that they do indeed have grade A support. Maybe you'll remember the article from this very site that stated that malware on Android has increased 472% since July while iOS remains nearly untouched (Apple, iPhone and iPad News | ModMyi - Android Malware Increases 472% Since July, iOS Nearly Untouched). Doesn't really make your case does it?
I don't think the point of this article is to determine who is the "better company". That's somewhat subjective. Google and Apple are quite different in the things they do. Google is primarily an advertising company (yes they do many other things, but advertising is where the vast majority of their revenue comes from) and they are VERY good at it. Apple is primarily a hardware/software company and (in my opinion) they are very good at that. What this article does note is that Apple is making boatloads more cash than Google in the mobile appstore world. That's all it addresses. So, in that area, I would argue that Apple is indeed better, at least quantitatively. Qualitatively, it's a matter of opinion.
You missed the point completely, it was on the app store, hence your an apple user, hence your using their product, hence your playing catch up. If your on the apple bandwagon your playing catch up.
And Apple doesn't take a larger share from developers. Developers for Android or iOS both receive 70% from each sale (Google Android Market vs. Apple App Store | Aaron Pava | CivicActions). Also, you say that Apple developers have to charge more because Apple takes more. We've already shown that Apple doesn't take more, but let's just assume that they did.
Thanks for stating the same thing twice in one sentence, did you fail english in school?
I could keep going but I think you get the point. Please don't respond to this. I'm sure you're a totally cool person (no sarcasm intended at all) and you're really just embarrassing yourself. Okay, maybe that was a little mean. Sorry.

If Android were to allow App and Game purchases to be made using a gift card or debit card they would make a lot more money.

I use both Android and iOS. Most of the article is true from what I have seen. My wife prefers iOS for the "quality" of apps in the market over what is in Android. She is happy I bought her a Kindle Fire, but she wished I got her an iPad because of the apps. I may buy her one for Christmas(happy wife = happy home).
