ZioCain239318dPersonally, I highly hope apple kills itself, even tho it is absolutely necessary to have something to go against Google.
Once Google will be the only one I think we might have a lot of troubles.
VaderNT185418dFunny how similar my perception of Mac OSX vs Windows is, just a bit shifted in time. I saw Windows 2000 as somewhat behind, XP and Vista closing in and 7 ahead, which Windows remains ever since.
iOS vs Android though? Comparing my private Android phone with my work-issued iPhone, iOS is so limited it's a "my first mobile" toy in comparison. Admittedly I'm somewhat of a power user.
AlgoRythm4656218d@VaderNT it's easy to forget how computer illiterate people are. Android is complex for that reason, and Apple is the answer. I think they are competing very well. They fill the same market but different corners of it. I like both operating systems. Though I don't like Apple's notch. I much prefer my OnePlus 7
VaderNT185417d@AlgoRythm I agree, I sometimes forget that too and it's a good thing Apple makes simple things easy. Though they don't make complex things possible. My Android phone is basically a laptop replacement when I want (it has a freaking desktop mode!). The iPhone just can't keep up. And I think it could, if Apple wanted to. Well, at least I thought so, with the iOS-ification of macOS I'm getting unsure.
They can try to kill themselves, but nadella will just air drop more failure windows updates and gsods to counter and assure he's safe from anticompetition.
