FORTUNE — “Have you heard this one?” asks John Kirk in Android’s Market Share is Literally a Joke, a Tech.pinions piece posted Thursday.
It starts like this:
It’s a variation on the old “making it up in volume” saw, and Kirk has a truckload of them. His punchline, in case you haven’t guessed, is that Google’s (GOOG) Android is winning the race with Apple (AAPL) iPhone because it’s got a bigger truck.
It’s a well-reasoned piece, and if some the arguments sound familiar it may be because the author is a regular Apple 2.0 reader and one of our favorite commentators, posting here under the handle “Falkirk.”
