PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It all started with Apple/TechCrunch blogger M.G. Siegler making a huge fuss over something he didn't understand, and while that in and of itself isn't particularly interesting, one of the outcomes of this little internet drama is a comment on Google+ (the tenth one) that so perfectly encapsulates just how important Android is for the world that I felt the need to share it with you. It's the holiday season after all.

The point is that "Android is so cool it's what history books will remember, as being the open source OS that changed things"

Well, as pointed out, it's not actually open. Plus, if anything, it's Linux which made the difference.

Finally, it's just marketing bs obviously. Just like iOS fans would claim iOS changed the face of the mobile (and thus the mobile web) and will make it into history books.

Heck. Freaking fanboi world.

What makes it into history books is the winner, no matter how, no matter why. The winner is the biggest seller. And that's Android.

That's still not revolutionary.
