Indeed. Also, with the rise of Android 4, I would wager a lot of people, like myself, that were into the jailbreak community, moved to Android.Note this is not a statement if there are more or less iOS vs Android pirates. I am simply talking about jailbreaking here.The refund system is new to me, being new to Android. I have not yet even begun to explore it. I would say that the Google Play Store does have some things going for it, including good search tools, ability to...
Bingo. And most people in the US I would wager have this view. But due to the temptation of polarisation nobody is talking about this common-sense approach, and this is what in general, this polarisation, will doom the US over the next 100 years.
Several incorrect assumptions above. Let me go through them.Revenue: I do not see how this is really relevant to our argument as I am taking an end-user perspective here. Suffice to say Google and the manufacturers aren't going bankrupt in the foreseeable future due to market potential.Developer Support: Android is gaining a lot of developer support for the things that we really want to do. All flagship apps know they have to be cross-platform, and they are. There are a...
I'm going to have to use 2 serial posts to cover all the stuff that was said, given that I was, you know, out and about enjoying myself for New Year's rather than in front of a computer (well, until now ha ha).Happy New Year! Play it hard!Some people find the iPhone 4, 4S and 5, too small a screen with a boring OS that hasn't changed much. Yawn too.Fragmentation is a challenge. At the same time there are a lot of features being offered by different manufacturers. A 100%...
When I say Android tablets I am including Kindle Fire because the stats show including Kindle etc. we're looking at 50-50 share by end of 2013.Fair enough if the tablet market indeed is different than smartphones so it will be interesting to see what happens in 2013. I remain of the opinion in any case, that we're at the start of a smartphone-like competitive environment. Kindle on one side, Nexus 7, 10, etc. on the other, and iPad in the third corner. Android tablets...
That's the thing... When a "curated" App Store keeps curating into the store sub-par apps, what's the point of curating anymore? Sure, it keeps out porn, but you don't need hardcore (pun unintended) curation to merely prevent 18+ material, you can keep things relatively open, and just keep some sort of monitoring and filtering by Apple. This is different from "closed" and "curated".I'm not saying Apple doesn't have the best App Store in the world, I'm just saying the...
Sure, I've got a $20k here I'll pay for a rocket launcher, anyone selling? The public housing at the end of my street has been pissing me off lately and they look at me funny too. For my "safety" I think it's best I take them out. Permanently. Because it is my right to bear arms and protect myself and my family. Seriously though, just listen to the stuff Cory Booker is saying. Nobody wants to take away ~all~ the guns, just manage the flow to criminals and psychos better....
You'd be surprised for me to say this, but Samsung deserves this. I still think though Schmidt and Google should balls up and take some of the heat instead of cruising by untouched.Sorry to burst your bubble, but none of this stops Android's momentum and inevitable eclipsing of Apple on both smartphones (already) and tablets (within 2 years max).
Cory Booker. One of the few people with a brain left. Piers Morgan going quite mental though.
Armed guards in schools... Crazy. Hollywood and gaming industry... Rubbish. If we have a police officer... Hmm... I'm not convinced. The answer to guns is more guns? Police officers in every school... So the answer to protect your liberty is more security and more government in your schools? Nutjob. The interviewer was pretty lefty though.
