PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

The person who coined the term seemed to have an idea about what it meant, and it wasn't exactly complex. Pretending it has countless grey areas doesn't actually make it true, especially when you're changing the meaning to suit your own needs.

People are always going to lob terms around & engage in name-calling like there's no tomorrow. It would just be nice if people made an effort to at least use the terms & name-calling correctly. Of course, it's nothing to lose sleep over.
