Actually iOS is an OS three of four different UIs all four of which (adding Mac OS X) are based on BSD Unix. What he is referring to, with respect to Android (a varient of Linux with a Java run-time environment on top), is that until Ice Cream Sandwich no attempt was made to take advantage of the larger scale display by showing more controls at once in a way that is differentiated from how the UI appears on an Android phone. So iOS is a phone OS but not JUST a...

Having served with a number of ROK Marines, I have to say Koreans are my favorite Asian group (except for what they do to cabbages).

Well if they had already planned to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7, they might as well upgrade to Windows 8 since it is said to be less resource intensive than Win 7.

They will likely not upgrade until you can't purchase a new machine without it.

Not sure you can wipe with one but the sharper edge and smaller size of the iPhone make it ideal for uhhh scraping round the back so to speak. Seems like a severe water hazard and makes one less likely to hold the phone to your face afterwards.
