Apple At the D11 conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook once again took the stage to be interviewed by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. While most of the interview can be replicated by picking and reading 10 random Apple fanblog stories - there were still a number of very interesting things that warrant some closer scrutiny.

Would love to see Apple open up their stuff a little bit more. I've been watching that platform for many years, and with each new iteration of iOS, they eliminate 1 or 2 things that keep me on Android. They don't have to open it up as far as custom roms, since I pretty much stick with stock roms now days. Just a few tweaks here and there would do it for me.

But why even consider a switch to iOS in the first place? Because, as it is, many apps/games are still being developed for iOS first, and then Android later. There's just a better ecosystem over there. Plus, I'm tired of Google's utter contempt for Nexus users, treating us like unpaid beta testers and being stingy with accessories. It's like they're begging us to go out and buy one of the fake Android phones.

Of course, some Android apps (such as toggle widgets) simply are not possible on iOS sans a jailbreak because of the limited API, so I'll stick with Android for the time being.
