Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

So it began with Andoid being *awesome* because it was open source and what not and it was made by Google. Then came the announcement about Blackberry's QNX and suddenly that was king.
And now it's Windows Phone and everything they do is undeniably the best.
Ok dude you're right.

He is sad because he thinks you praise too much various mobile operating system and unfairly forgot to mention iOS's big merits.

iOS's big merits.

The only "merit" I can think of is the fact they take stuff invented by others and used in countless other products for years, polish them to death and present them as their own inventions to the unwashed gullible masses. Then, they proceed to sue the crap out of their competitors using patents on rectangles.

No I'm saying it's not black or white like he paints it out to be most of the times, depending on the flavour of the month.
Each system has it's own merits.
First and foremost iOS and Android have much more experience in the mobile space.
iOS is more suited for everyday folk, Android offers far more alternatives, both in terms of hardware and software and it gives the ability to tech savvy users to tweak it according to their liking. Windows falls somewhere in the middle in my opinion.

The way things are today, if I had to choose something other than iOS, I would prefer Windows over Andoid, even though I have more faith in Google in the long term.

In a line, stop being so biased in your articles every time you change your mind. You're takings jabs at people like Gruber but at least they don't portray themselves as being objective; what you're doing is worse.
