PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While the world outside of OSNews is wondering whether we really need yet another mobile operating system, we here are of course happy with another contender - the more, the merrier, as it equals to competition, which keeps everybody on their toes. A day before the Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona (finally a tech event in my time zone!), Samsung unveiled its Wave handset, the first sporting Samsung's new Bada operating system.

Hardware-wise, my old Apple II didn't retain much value.

Over a decade after production, these devices were still in use (and useful) in elementary and middle schools across the US. I'd say that's reasonable value.

Software-wise, if you still want to use your farting app

I really must have been asleep for the portion of time in which this joke was funny.

Just use any phone that does J2ME

I'm not keen on self-inflicted pain.

I don't trust Apple nor Google to secure any of my investment. I can trust the Apache license of Android, but certainly not the Apple license. If you do trust them, I can only wish good luck to you and that they don't betray you.

It is in the best interest of both Apple and Google to improve and expand their respective platforms so that they remain viable and competitive. An open license is a benefit, but it doesn't ensure developer attention and it doesn't provide relevance. Both of which are needed to maintain a successful platform and both of which have been attained by Apple and Google.
