PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "For a seventh consecutive month, the Samsung Galaxy S III is the most popular smartphone in the United Kingdom. The data compiled by uSwitch is based on live searches, pre-orders, as well as postpaid sales. Curiously, Apple's current smartphone flagship is not even second. The iPhone 5 is outperformed by its predecessor, whose lower price and improved contract offers helped it remain appealing. The Samsung Galaxy S II completes the quartet at the top. The rest of the top ten smartphones is entirely an Android party. It includes the Google Nexus 4, who entered the rankings a solid fifth. The second half of the top ten includes the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia U, HTC One X, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2." This is getting ridiculous, and it's not good for the market. For the love of Fiona, people, buy something that's not Android. I don't want to live in an Android-dominated smartphone world.

Do I have to lock down my device and prevent her from enjoying using it? Why should I have to? I've certainly never had this happen to an iOS devices I own and this stinks.


Logic fails: you don't want to lock down the device for your daughter but you praise a system that is locked down as being superior.

I'm very sorry, but I don't see iOS as locked down. I've never been prevented from doing anything I've needed to do with iOS. I administer remote machines via VPN and RDP, I download PDF's and read them on device, I edit documents and seamlessly transfer them to my desktop via iCloud, Google docs or dropbox. I code games in Codea. I edit movies, I make music, I animate sprites for games. I edit photos, I draw comics. What is it that I'm being prevented from doing here? Nothing I'd *want* to do on an iPad.
