the winner should be
There is something fundamentally wrong when you assume people will use the same hardware for the same purposes. I do not own an iPod or an iPhone. Neither device would be practical as a developer. Nothing could replace my quad core toshiba satellie. Apple is trying to have it there way by not supporting hardware but their own. I'm sorry they do not get broadband in the rural areas, but that does not negate my need for a web-based cloud. Of course google's philosophy is better by nature in that web based clouds offers more options, better value for money paid into subscriptions, and a better range of products. How much can iTunes really do on an iPad? I do not care how good it run audio and video, I have a tv for that. I do not care how much better the touch technology is, I need a keyboard. Apple devices are just toys so their philosophy cannot hold any weight against google's. PC's and linux can be tools and operate on a philosophy of making it affordable for everyone. If apple had there way, they would work the chinese peasants to death in order to put an iPhone in the hands of every american. They can just buy an HTC phone I guess. Apple products are just toys, plain and simple. Geekwire stated the 6 of the top 10 downloads were games such as oldschool blocks and skee-ball. A few of the top 10 downloads for android were barcode scanner, ASTRO file manager, amazon music, pandora radio, and kindle. A mindset that produces a toy, or the mindset that produces tools. Which do you think will have the best philosophy??
