PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ian G. Clifton: "Early on, iOS did a lot to push mobile devices forward and helped set bars in a lot of areas for other platforms to meet. Unfortunately, iOS has not changed much lately and in some ways hurts Android when used as the 'golden standard' due to its limitations. A lot of the harm isn't realized by consumers, but Android developers encounter it constantly when something has to be done 'the iOS way' or an Android feature is not even considered because iOS cannot do the same."

I don't think Apple is exactly sitting still either. I also don't think it'd be that difficult of a feat for them to refresh iOS enough to keep people interested.

I think the very same people who say that others fell into Steve Job's RDF are the ones who attribute this weird company-saving attribute exclusively to him.

Steve set Apple on a prosperity trip that will last into the next decade, but it doesn't mean he's the only one who can do so. By all accounts, Tim Cook, who ran the show a lot of the time, is doing a fine job.
