PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's an article making the rounds right now about how applications on iOS crash more often than applications on Android. I'm not going to detail the entire methodology - the article itself does so - but it does raise an interesting talking point about how both mobile operating systems handle application crashes and updates.

Not always the software

My iPod touch which is now roughly 3 years old frequently crashes apps. It has come on gradually and relates the degrading of the storage with age and use.

The music which has always been on; and changes little seems to work reliably. Some of the newspaper apps that reload their text and images regularly ... fail within 15 minutes or so of use.

Solid state storage does not have the durable reliability we imagine. You get used to trusting it and then it fails.

I'm probably out of step - most normal people replace their handheld devices every 18 months or so.

The Java/ C++ debate is only part of the debate ... not all of it.
