PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

The main problem being that there is only so much you can tell about alternative OS without repeating yourself.

Where are the articles about developing OS stuff, or new alternative OS only used by its developers, without having them already in previous OSNews posts?

That's true. It's nearly impossible to cover something new, but honestly I'd enjoy a good series on computer data structures even if the topic isn't new at all. I get the feeling I'm an order of magnitude more "geeky" in terms of system internals than the average readership here, and as much as I dislike some of these articles, genuine OS topics are rare to come by in the news. Generating a stream of quality articles would likely require the employment of some technical journalists & engineers to do research.

For better or worse, professional writing is giving way to the low cost blogging format.

It's also because people "an order of magnitude more" are too lazy to write and submit "quality articles" from time to time? ;)
