OSNews, Generic OSes It's not the return of the OSNews comic, but it was too good to let pass. Our coverage of the Apple event was minimal this week, so I decided to round the key points up in an illustration...

My funny moment is that the people who hate on the iPad(or most iOS implementations), well I can easily write a web-app for them that "fixes" whatever ailes them and it is trivial at best and BS MOST of the time. And that web app is better than imho than the base of what the 'droid platform offers. If you dont believe me than google up Sal Saghoian and Automator and see what I mean. Both options are there. And while I sometimes desire that Apple was a little moe OSS friendly, how much more can they be? I can write a closed iOS App and an OPEN Automator, Cocoa or Applescript on Cocoa (ASOC) app and who in userspace cann tell the difference?
I chose Apple because it works (or at least gets out of my way) When FOSS goes there then we ALL have won, but until then I am going with the best closed OS that I can GTD on.
