Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

He was stating that other people stating themselves as geeks were wrong (in his first few sentences) because they didn't know the history.


I didn't say they were wrong (and no need to get so angry, by the way).

I merely believe that having a good sense of history is important when discussing things like this. Framing 30 years of mobile computing history as "Android vs. iOS" is idiotic.
