Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Ralf Rottmann is CTO and co-founder of the largest mobile application developer in Germany, Grandcentrix. He has more Apple devices than an Apple Store and thinks he's a fanboy - yet, he's switched to the Nexus 4 completely, stating that "the latest version of Android outshines the latest version of iOS in almost every single aspect". This line in particular rings true for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article. Apple has a lot of catching up to do, or it will be Mac OS all over again.

On Android, it's basically your country, wi-fi settings and your Gmail username/password - on iOS, it's a lot more.


To be fair, you kind of sell your soul when you got that Gmail account.

Plus the amount of e-mail Apple send to your account as you go through the process is appalling.


Is there an app that plays the Get Smart theme while you are going through that process?

There could be, but you wouldn't be able to multitask correctly to do so...

No, you don't sell your soul, you only sell what you decide to put inte that gmail account. You could use any other mail service, including the one you set up on your own server at home.

I, unfairly, sold Google the soul of a made up person called Olden Inyoué when I set up gmail. Olden lives in the town across the river from me in a different state.

No reason to give them any info I'm not comfortable sharing. Olden didn't object though ...
