Why switch? Tim is a heavy user of Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) productivity apps, and he has plenty of company. More than 425 million users were on Gmail as of June 2012. By now, that total is surely past a half billion. Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page has said there are 5 million businesses using Google Apps.
Tim says these numbers reflect a growing opportunity for Google more than a genuine threat to Apple, especially with the Mac maker having sold 9 million new iOS 7-powered handsets last weekend. Some 200 million updated their existing handsets to iOS 7 over the same period.
