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.

Thanks for the link, nice laugh / even earlier example of "people predicted the fall of civilisation & moral decay of youth since the advent of written word" than the one I had (classical ancient Greece)

And scary that Reagan also subscribed to it... (but maybe it explains some things - you don't need to really think, long-term, about economy, social welfare, environment, when all those issues will be swept aside by the coming apocalypse... and then, he nearly caused it by the idiocy of Able Archer exercise and related - really, what kind of thinking goes into launching all-out exercises of such kind at the height of tensions? Some high US official who declined to participate, and one DDR agent who was passing over to the Soviet data about true nature of what was happening - those two people probably saved the world back then)
