I’m really amazed at how bad Google is at UI design, and even more amazed that people put up with it. Considering how practiced Google is at ripping off fundamental ideas from iOS (multi-touch, swiping, momentum scrolling, pinch to zoom, on-screen keyboard, etc.) you’d think they could do a better job of ripping off good UI practices also. But no; here they are 5 years after Apple first showed them the way, and they’re still failing miserably at it. Embarrassing.

Reazione di un fanboy android all’acquisto o deposito di brevetti da parte di Apple:

Uuuuhhh oooohhhh stronzi capitalistici ladri devono morire, basta con questi brevetti, distruggono la società e provocano diarrea e alitosi, i brevetti devono sparire, morte al capitalismo!

Reazione di un fanboy android all’acquisto o deposito di brevetti da parte di Google:

Uuuuhhh oooohhhh grande Google, difendi Android, difendi Linux, viva Google che sei la nostra salvatrice!

Ecco il modello di mercato che vorrebbero alcuni: ruba liberamente il lavoro degli altri, difendi con i denti il tuo.

I’m rolling on the floor laughing! No, I’m not talking about Windows, but the “marvellous” mobile OS which, according to someone, it’s better than iOS (in their onanistic dreams!)

Dunno why, but looking at market strategies, fragmentation, propaganda, religion wars and viruses, Google/Android rise is becoming more and more similar to Microsoft/Windows one. 

Come on, get the Norton Antivirus. Good luck! :D

If you give away your work for free to gain market share in an anti-competitive way and then sell your ads, doesn’t mean others should give you the chance to use their work (or their property) for free.

Sorry Google, welcome to the real world.

"Developers don’t care about Android apps’ quality because Android does not give them right tools and its ecosystem cannot help them make money. These are all caused by Android, because they don’t care. All they care about is “market share” and people using Google to do mobile search."

iOS is a better investment than Android

Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote

If you have one choice to put your development investment there is no question - put it all on iOS

here is why:

Revenue for Evernote - 28% iOS and 10% Android — RIM and WinMo (not WP7 which is not out yet) less than 5%

Q: Could you please explain the necessity of the passive location-tracking tool embedded in my iPhone? It’s kind of unnerving knowing that my exact location is being recorded at all times. Maybe you could shed some light on this for me before I switch to a Droid. They don’t track me.

Steve Jobs: Oh yes they do. We don’t track anyone. The info circulating around is false. Sent from my iPhone.

"Secondo Kamkar, un telefono Htc Android raccoglie e trasmette ogni pochi secondi la sua posizione, l’identificativo unico del dispositivo nonché nome, luogo, e forza del segnale di ogni rete Wi-Fi nei dintorni. L’azienda di Steve Jobs, invece, ha ammesso già lo scorso anno, in una lettera ai congressisti statunitensi Edward Markey e Joe Barton, di raccogliere a intervalli regolari i dati di posizione, coordinate Gps comprese, di diversi utenti e delle reti Wi-Fi a loro vicine, ma non l’identificativo unico."

Toh, che strano, ora attendo le arrampicate sugli specchi degli Androidiani ;)

"I’m talking about what Android is right now. It is pretty clear is that Android does not deliver the best user experience. This may or may not change in the future, which I don’t know. From the consumers’ point of view, they either buy Android and help it grow (in hopes it will improve), or choose the best products on the market right now. It’s a pretty easy call I think."
