Editorial Most of us here like gadgets. Things with displays, LEDs, or stuff that otherwise lights up in the dark and makes cool noises. There is this one gadget I had been waiting for to come out in The Netherlands for quite a while now, but at some point a limit was reached, and today I decided to do a complete 180 and buy a competing product.

100,000 Apps to test now Thom

And with all those devs that left the platform because of Apple's draconian assessment policies you never know, it could have been 100,005 by now...

In all reality though there's probably only about 1% to 2% that are useful commercial quality apps right? I'm certain there would be significantly more similar apps than that available for Windows Mobile or Windows Phone or whatever they're calling it this month, Symbian, Blackberry etc with their much more user friendly development policies right?

Because as we all know, popularity confirms quality.

As such, Windows is the best operating system in the world, and Apple makes crap hardware, because they barely register on the worldwide sales scale for personal computers.

I love the hypocrisy from Apple fanatics.

Windows fanatics are just the same. After saying for many years that Windows is better because it has more software than OS X, Ballmer is now saying that having much less software for Win Mobile is a good thing because it's higher quality.

I guess OS X software is higher quality as well.

Actually, with 100,000 apps, there's a greater chance of finding a high quality program than when on a platform with 10% of that. There's no evidence that having far less programs means that a greater percentage of them are better.
