As Google and Apple continue to become more and more adversarial both sides seem desperate to prove that they can do anything better than the other. The latest figures put Android significantly ahead of iOS in terms of popularity with a 52% share of the market, ahead of Apple’s 33% (It’s probably not best to look if you’re a fan of Blackberry, Symbian or Windows Phone) but does that really make them the better system? Which offers the best value? Which is the best designed? And which one will be able to do everything you need it to?
The recent riots have been accompanied by more ignorant and unfounded squawking than anything I’ve seen for a long time. Simply put no-one really has the faintest clue why, for the last week, large groups of people decided it would be a good idea to smash up their local high street and nick as much as they can. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying to suit their political agenda or is such a blustering egotist that they feel compelled to comment on a matter that they have absolutely zero authority on.
That said, my groundless opinion on what has happened follows. I make no claims that this is anything other than speculation.
