Apple "Apple's new iOS 7, which the company unveiled last week at its Worldwide Developer Conference, says a lot about the future of mobile devices because Apple owns the future of mobile devices." If you're an Apple fanatic, you're going to love this article. If you're not an Apple fanatic, you'll be shaking your head in disbelief that the once great AppleInsider runs stuff like this these days. Hey, there's always MacRumors - the last great bastion of proper Apple rumour reporting.

I've never heard a lay person say they love Android because its Linux, or because it has an SD Card, or a task manager, or can run an HTTP server or whatever.


I've heard a lot of Android owners saying they love it because it has an USB port, can be charged from whatever USB powered port and can act as an USB mass storage under whatever operating system without having to install some bloated software first, if it's even available for this operating system.

People use Android because its flexible, cheap, and available. There's very little brand loyalty there (save for the Samsungistas)


And?
Since when hardware plateform rules over software plateform!?

The ecosystem which matter is the features one, most of them being software ones, not some unique hardware ones.
