You probably found this article based on the title and thought ooooh an Apple basher. Well not quite.
I don’t really HATE Apple as such. They are a company with a sole aim in the marketplace – to grab a huge slice of the pie that is the personal computer market. I guess we could say they’re doing OK at that. Then they enter the mobile phone market with what is essentially a rather poor phone with a slick interface. They sell it for hundreds of pounds more than other comparable phones and all the sad and irritating people suddenly jump around saying “oh look my iphone does this…”
Just fuck off already. My HTC Tytn 2 did most of that shit 3 years prior to the iphone.
That’s what narks me. The blind support for Apple when in my opinion they don’t deserve it.
They invent a non generic port and we end up with hundreds of speaker docks, plug in kettles, fridges and other useless iPod dock trash. Most of them poor quality it has to be said.
The media blindly follows on… Sorry Media but stop using the word “app” to refer to a piece of software designed for iphone, and what about the Android, Symbian and other OS versions?
Finally… and the thing that is really pissing me off… 2nd class citizenship.
Audiobox.fm have an atrocious app for Android yet the iphone one is all bells and whistles. They are promising a new release on Monday, but if I still get the same false starts and non playing tracks my collection is moving across to Moozone. Thank god for Dropbox
