    It's only a multiple choice if "other" was one of the choices.

    None is always a choice.

    None is always a choice, but it doesn't have to remain 'none' forever. How many iPhones are over 4"? None but only because Apple hasn't chosen to make one yet.

    That's a pretty good list.  And that article is reflective about most Android publications.  They appreciate the good things Apple does.  It's just that the tables have turned and it's Apple's that been borrowing heavily from Android since iOS4 and less the other way around.  And it's a good thing.  I have no problem with any platform improving by taking inspiration from others.  We as consumers benefit.

     

    The key difference I think is that you will probably never see an article like this on AppleInsider.

    Ron is an Android journalist and he regularly slams Google, Samsung, HTC etc.  And I am glad.  Android's better from the efforts of its critics.

    I tell you what's psychotic and shameful. Those posts that vehemently slammed samsung for copying and now praising apple for copying android.

    And please don't give me the bs excuse that samsung deserved it for copying those ridiculous rectangular and prior arts and on the other hand Apple did no wrong as it only borrowed prior technology that has proven to be very functional by android.

    You were incorrect about predictive keyboards. It isn't about predicting the word being typed, it's predicting the next word before you even begin to type it.

    iOS is looking pretty interesting, if the rumors are try about a larger iPhone as well I just might cave and buy one. Does anyone know if you can select another browser as a default?

    Have you use Android keyboards lately?

    That's what the samsung, android and swiftkey keyboards do as well. These keyboards learn your typing history as well as referencing email Facebook etc.

    Note to all the Google Lickers here: if you really want to compare a complete list of who had what feature first, iOS or Android, you will lose. And lose badly.

    Remember when you tools were talking about how stupid software keyboards were? I sure do.

    There were claims of 'stupid' features/functions on both sides. Best you remember that.

I use 1Password on my iPhone and DO NOT want any 3rd-party keyboard app being able to tell what I'm typing in to unlock my 1P database. Perhaps you should start looking at these issues as a rational and objective viewer, and not take a stance as an anti-Apple, pro-Android troll.

     

    A "mogul gaberator" who's not a biased scaremonger might have mentioned the articles only referred to pirated versions if he meant to be balanced.

Your claims that there are no Android apps that aren't doing exactly what the customer expects of them is absolute fucking bullshit and you know it.

    There are so, so, so few examples of these apps on Android and Apple in their respective App stores. I'm not saying it's 100% immune, it's just incredibly more secure than you're believing.


    Yup.

    Did you think that my two examples were all inclusive? Are you calming that it's impossible for a non-pirated app to be malicious? I've clearly mentioned my concerns with Apple's 3rd-party keyboard option as well as dubious non-pirated apps making their way into the App Store so in what way am I not holding putting Apple and Android on the same level when it comes to questioning security?

    I've never seen [@]SolipsismX[/@] using scare tactics by spreading FUD. His concerns are always valid. Malicious apps have snuck into the app store in spite of the vetting process, and they've definitely gotten into the Play store. Just look at brightest flashlight.

    It simply reminded me of how most articles about security breaches in Apple products start with click-bait headlines that make it sound like "run for the hills, Apple's security is broken, broken I tell you!" - and then turn out to be about "proofs of concept" that have barely (or never) occurred "in the wild" - or involve users having to do something stupid, etc., etc. - and that Apple security is still just fine.



    So when the poster states "Perhaps you should start looking at these issues as a rational and objective viewer, and not take a stance as an anti-Apple, pro-Android troll." it might behoove him to begin his own citation with, "While these examples involve users loading pirated versions of software...." As otherwise, the implication overstates the threat to Play Store users who "play" by the rules.



    That's all....

    No, they are not "much the same now".

     

    iOS is more secure than Android (including being FIPS 140-2 certified).

     


    Android is also FIPS 140-2 certified now.
