Google "The announcement that Nexus One users won't be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich led some to justifiably question Google's support of their devices. I look at it a little differently: Nexus One owners are lucky. I've been researching the history of OS updates on Android phones and Nexus One users have fared much, much better than most Android buyers." I'm happy the modding community takes care of orphaned devices, but a solution it is not. I'm hoping the crop of Android phones released this past year - which were not included in this analysis - fair better. If there's one thing Google should steal from Apple, it's their iOS update support.

This doesn't mean "internet almost went down" - just that Apple servers couldn't cope and/or servers of content distributors of the likes of Akamai (on which AFAIK Apple, and not only, relies very much)

Or, if you're getting into stereotypes, maybe tons of Apple users with their typically expected "insight" into technology, and used mostly to browsing, started twittering about how, in reality, their connection or router can't keep up...
