You're not a fan of this type of thing yet in most threads, you post something to denigrate Apple. Recall the stories about how many cracked iPhone screens you've seen at a party, how many non-iPads you've seen on the trading floor, how the Nokia Lumia is so much better than an iPhone, going on about the limitations of iOS, how suddenly because Apple decided to use AMD in the new Mac Pro, the CUDA software you don't even have won't run anywhere near as fast as on non-Apple hardware, how Apple hasn't really invented anything and is just riding off other people's innovations.
This isn't a bashing article. Google reported false information and they got called on it. On many occasions you claim to not be tied into one particular manufacturer, the implication being that Apple users just buy everything Apple no matter what but if that's the case then why have a problem with Google's falsehoods being corrected? If you defend everything so long as it's not Apple, that's not impartial.
MS had a 90%+ marketshare, Apple doesn't. Also Apple adheres to open standards, MS didn't.
I'd rather remove the widgets from Android and just get straight to the apps. I assume that's possible to do. OS designers make choices about functionality and design. If they added widgets, you'd be one of the first to suggest they are just playing catch up to Android. There's always suggestions Apple should do things the same as Android and when they do anything that looks remotely similar like notifications or design, people criticize them for it.
More Apple bashing. Android wasn't designed for a touch UI, it had no software keyboard. The appearance and behaviour of the OS was taken from Apple almost immediately after Apple showed it off. Apple's operating systems are also heavily based on NeXT, it's not just some off-the-shelf unix. The first versions of the internet were developed on NeXT OS:
"Inventor of the world wide web describes how the Unix-based NeXT Computer he unpacked in 1990 came ready to run - unlike most of the Unix boxes he had to deal with"
You can dismiss their input to the computing world as simple 'repackaging' but it would be doing them a disservice. If you think the computers, smartphones and tablets you use every day would have been the same without Apple, you are very much mistaken and they've earned the success they have, especially with the iPad. When Google misreports numbers to feed people's misguided attempts at dethroning Apple, there's nothing wrong with setting the record straight.
Don't waste your time with Relic. She obviously doesn't like Apple and can't seem to understand that this site is an Apple-centric site. She likes collecting gadgets.
She doesn't realize that if Android OS kept up with it's original path of having a smartphone with a physical keyboard, that Android would be no where, because as soon as the iPhone came out, Android changed direction and tried to emulate an iOS device. Pathetic really.
