I wonder if there is a fix for my Google Docs that suddenly stopped working after the 5.0 update. Funny how it just stopped working just out of the blue like that. Almost as if Apple wants me to give up on it and buy their word processor instead of using the free option that has been working perfectly fine for the last two years. Maybe it's just my iPad, or maybe it's on Google's end. Just seems funny how that happend.

Yeah, I tried that. There are a lot of people with the same problem, but no one has a solution. And the help link doesn't work either. I'll figure something out, but I'm still looking forward to that 13 inch Toshiba or one of the Asus Transformers. So it may not be an issue for much longer.

that toshiba is so over priced though.. ick. If windows8 tablets werent so close, id probably throw down on a transformer and keyboard dock. As it is, i wanna see just how well compatibility mode works in W8.

Idk about that W8 tablet. It looks okay, the UI seems very fluid. But I haven't done Windows in a while.

One thing android doesn't have. Timely updates. Some phones never get an update at all.

Apple supports it for 3 years after release so it gets two additional major updates plus all the minor updates.

thats because unlike iOS, they dont get updates unless they can get the full update.. not just an update to say they are on the newest OS, yet lacking all the features, or running like cold molasses because the phone cant handle it. Those are iOS update issues.

Sometimes it better to not get the updates. Dont fix what isnt broken.

Yea who would want new features. Might as well stay on the same OS forever.

Well with iOS you pretty much are, they don't really change it much....

that was my point. on iOS you get an update with no new features just to say you got an update, where on android you dont get the update unless you get all the features.

Great job on your lack of reading ability, troll.

So you'd rather have none of the features than some? iOS 5 gave everything to 3GS and 4 except Siri. So us iPhone users literally got 100's of new features. Meanwhile only 5% of android users are on ICS.

iOS5 gave tons of reports of massive slowdowns and compatibility issues with the 3GS and i4 if i remember right. And since Siri was the MAIN new feature other than android notifications, I'd say they got 50% of the touted features at best. 3GS cant even do the fake multitasking either as far as i remember.

And no, I would rather have a phone that is fully functional and running smoothly, than be on the latest update just to get half of it and risk issues with it pushing old hardware too hard.
My wife's phone is on stock 2.3.6, and I asked her if she would like ICS a while back.. her response was "why? everything is working perfectly without issue."
and thats the point.

besides, you cant even name 1/3rd of the new features of 5.01.. what was it you touted? 500 new bug fixes or something like that? Name 25. Tell me why it was so important.
Unlike iOS, android apps are compatible with a range of OS builds without issue. Which OS is known for app crashes? Its not Android 2.3.. its iOS 5.0. Thats the positive side to the "fragmentation" non-issue you always yack about.
