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for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article.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.

Apple wants to make money even on things like bluetooth GPS units (a jailbroken ipod/pad can use an external GPS). There are cheap OBD2 interfaces for your car. There are a lot of other possibilities. None of which Apple will allow.


So according to you the ODB interface that I use with my iPhone 4, is what, my imagination? Completely stock iPhone, not jailbroken, wireless ODB interface, works perfectly.
