PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's an article making the rounds right now about how applications on iOS crash more often than applications on Android. I'm not going to detail the entire methodology - the article itself does so - but it does raise an interesting talking point about how both mobile operating systems handle application crashes and updates.

"As for languages that suck, well, they really don't get much worse than Objective C.

Couldn't agree more. A bastardized mix of C and SmallTalk, and neither bit bares even the slightest syntactic resemblance to the other. Even C++ is cleaner, and that's saying something. Why anyone thought the design of obj-c was a good thing I couldn't guess, and why Next (and as a consequence Apple) went with it is one of those mysteries we'll probably be wondering about forever.

I actually love Objective-C, for high level application development it provides a lovely runtime oop environment... That said, I always use C++ for embedded design.

-edit- Both Obj-C and C++ are vastly superior to the abortion that is Java and C#... The Fisherprice of programming languages ;)
