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."

The thing is that there are many old timers like myself (using computers since 1986), that remember the old Apple and how it performed without Steve.

Contrary to all the hipster kids that love Apple, we know how proprietary it was, the crazy prices only possible for rich families, how they failed (twice) to develop in-house a successor to Mac OS and so on.

Many of those things happened while Steve was away.


I knew it would come back to this after Steve passed away, i just didn't expect the impact to be so huge and happen so fast. Seems they are running around like headless chickens without him. I recommended my friends to sell their Apple stock immediately after he passed and the ones that listened are glad they did.
