My original post was a rebuttal to a guy discussing Android. You jumped into that conversation. I will be the first to admit that I know next to nothing about the various flavors of Windows phones and tablets. I have no idea what are the differences between a Surface, a Surface Pro, Windows RT, or Windows 8 mobile. The reason I have no interest in any of those aside from it being very confusing is there is paltry amount of apps to choose from. Again I ask you what good is...
Yes I often use spotlight but what happens when you don't know the name of an app? In OS X there are all sorts of ways to sort and shuffle and browse to find what you are looking for. Some of that power would be very welcome in my opinion on iOS to help find things faster. I also use folders but find them very limiting. I need an easier way to sort and organize and move apps around and rearrange my screens. In OS X for example you can use command+select or shift+select to...
  All the games I play like Modern War, Kingdom Age, Clash of Clans, PvZ2, and so many other games and apps aren't even available on Windows so what good is multiple accounts when the games and apps aren't available to any user profile? Xbox live is also a paid service. You can't even watch Netflix or Youtube on an Xbox unless you pay Microsoft their yearly tribute. What a ripoff. I have a huge group of friends with iOS devices that I can challenge to games with Game...
And I I'm not discounting the possibility that Microsoft or Google released multiple user profiles even though they offer less than an ideal solution and are not ready for prime time. If you don't mind a beta quality experience that won't matter. Apple are perfectionists so I expect if and when they decide to add that feature it will not suffer from the same problems and limitations I have seen with the Android implementation. 
Unless it has improved since this review it appears that is just a game launch pad and does not easily allow you to challenge friends like Apple's game center.  http://www.techhive.com/article/2045145/the-google-play-games-hub-could-learn-something-from-apple-s-game-center.html That also does not address the main issue I brought up about games that do not rely on game center or the Google equivalent like Modern War. That game stores a huge amount of data on your iPad so if...
 How do you know it is not a technological hurdle? iOS has a game center that as far as I know an equivalent feature is not available on Android or Windows. Perhaps there is something also about having your Apple ID/ iCloud account account tied to one device that makes it harder for Apple to add multiple user profiles. We really do not know all the facts and can only speculate. How would games for example like Modern War that do not even use Apple's game center handle...
I have an iPad (4th gen) and overall I am very happy with it. I have never once thought I needed that hands free option with gestures but I suppose it could be useful to some people on rare occasions. User profiles is also not a feature I really need since I use my iPad 98% of the time but for those rare occasions where I let someone use it I would be more comfortable if I could let them use a guest user account so they would not have full access to my email, Facebook,...
Anyone catch the latest PS4 Vs. Xbox on Southpark that also makes fun of Black Friday and Game of thrones? Gotta love princess Kenny. Hilarious   I currently have a PS3 and it was a good decision. If you want to watch some add on features like Netflix, Youtube, etc..on the Xbox then you need to pay for a yearly Xbox live account but that is not needed on the PS platform. I do not want to keep sending money to a company just to be able to watch Netflix.Without that annual...
I do and I said so above. Android emulators on Macs and PC's using Bluestacks, virtual PC, Fusion, Parallels, etc. along with these TV dongles. I have around 4 maybe more Android accounts running on my Mac Pro that I rarely ever use except to play one single game for events that I bet get counted as Android tablets. One guy on my team has 6 of these accounts.
Neill, what do you think about Android activations when it comes to emulators? For example Bluestacks is a very common emulator available for both Windows and OS X that allows you to run a virtual Android tablet on your Mac or PC. There are also many others. Even Parallels and VM Ware Fusion allow this once you download Android. I have about 3 Android accounts I use for a game called Modern war which has factions (teams). I use these spare accounts to help with certain...
