Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Ralf Rottmann is CTO and co-founder of the largest mobile application developer in Germany, Grandcentrix. He has more Apple devices than an Apple Store and thinks he's a fanboy - yet, he's switched to the Nexus 4 completely, stating that "the latest version of Android outshines the latest version of iOS in almost every single aspect". This line in particular rings true for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article. Apple has a lot of catching up to do, or it will be Mac OS all over again.

He never borrowed an iPhone.

Apparently he he borrowed it from work, it was someone else's and needed to be upgraded. This guy doesn't have any iPhone/iOS experience, doesn't have Windows/OS X and iTunes. I'm sure they have at least Windows at work, but he took it home where he didn't have it.

After upgrading it, which he did do in a different way than just plugging it in and clicking "Yes", he registered it in his own name and either added his credit card or bought iTunes credit to check out apps. This makes no sense if the phone is intended for someone else.

Apart from that, most his gripes with iOS are BS. He should get over 100 "inaccurate" mod downs, but instead gets modded up because he slams an Apple product. It seems he just made up a few things and googled issues of iOS' past and made up a rant. This rant he posted twice, twice full of holes, twice no attempt at plugging them.

But should he REALLY get an iPhone the good news is that there are emulators. The ZX Spectrum, Atari 2600 and Commodore 64 are covered. Granted they are difficult to find, but if you use the secret search term "emulator" you will find them very quickly.
