Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

"I think my response can be summed up in just one image:

I completely agree. Apple designed an interface before release and has since been able to reap the rewards of a stable platform for developers and users alike.

Android, as shown in your excelent picture, was released as pre-beta with no thought to usability. It has taken many iterations and redesigns and is only now becoming a usable system after many years. Unfortunately users and developers alike cannot rely on even this version being carried forward and becoming a stable environment to learn.

Just because the UI remains how it was originally designed, doesn't mean it's optimal - Apple for the first year didn't even allow 3rd party apps, IT WASN'T A PLATFORM AT ALL for developers.
