Too long, it needs to get to the point. I don't have all the time in the world to read an overly long article.

Aww Snap!

btw... once again, a great article by Michael. The dreaded "fragmentation", as I pointed out in a comment on another recent awesome article by Michael, is actually a strength for the overall platform... a fresh breath of freedom.

Hey MichaelHeller, where did you get that picture? It's very funny, the Android looks like a salt shaker or something similar.

Also great article, that was some good reading!

hard to find the original image source, but i think it had something to do with the Oracle v Android dispute.

If it does the following: lags like molasses, gets minor or no updates, has bloated interfaces, and has so many security vulnerabilities

Then it's an Android.

And if it looks exactly like the one the person next to you is holding, it's a iOS device.

I'd take the Apple Pie over Ice Cream Sandwich, but I'm stuck on Gingerbread.

Oooohhh... When CM_Punk stops, the whole world stops, and there would be no more Android because CM_Punk didn't give his permission, eh? Yeah... your head is getting too large, and spilling your ego out onto your shoulders. It piles up after a while, too, ya know. Need to hire a couple snow plows to shovel the delusions of grandeur off of your shoulders?

Do you stereotypical iFans do anything aside from trolling every android article on this site? I am going to go ahead and assume you were the one who went right down the list of comments and thumb downed everyones posts for no reason. I guess I just miss the point of trolling here... I guess some people just need to say things online and portray themselves as sweaty man actors because in real life they are nothing more than an insignificant spec in the face of humanity.

No, actually I didn't. And I could ask some of the Android fans the same thing, the ones who go into Apple articles and troll them.

Oh and to drop another pipebomb onto your response, I have an Android phone.
