Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Catfight! Get out your mobile phones and start filming, because two important personalities in the mobile world just got into a catfight. After the presentation of Apple's (once again) stellar quarterly results (what's with the low iPad sales, though?), Apple's CEO Steve Jobs went on a bit of a tangent regarding Android (among other things). Google's Andy Rubin, the father of Android, responded in a pretty fun way via Twitter.

I've got an iPhone 3G. I haven't upgraded to iOS4 and anyone who hasn't yet, shouldn't.

Not only do you not get any of the new features (well one or two, but I honestly can't think what they are beyond the ability to skip tracks via bluetooth AVRCP in 4.2 which should have been there all along) it radically slows your device to near unusable levels. 4.2 improves on 4.1 but is still much slower than version 3.

With this kind of "support" who needs enemies?

(Note that the only reason I didn't upgrade before the initial wave of complaints is because the iTunes upgrade repeatedly crashed with totally incomprehensible error messages e.g. "-43 error". Saved from one Apple software disaster by another, how ironic considering that the fanboys would have you believe that Apple simply doesn't have these problems)
