I think they show bias in his article because the whole Apple IOS can run on less ram comment. They give apple an excuse for having less ram. While knocking Android even though there is only one device that has 2 gig of memory on Android. The comment makes it sound like android needs 2 gigs of memory when it does not. and that shows bias towards Apple.
