I just Generally hate iApple and MS Winblows. However I will admit to owning Winblows from 95 - 7 I have 7 on my laptop that I am also running Linux on. I stay on the Linux side 99.9% of the time. However I don't want to support biased data or more importantly spread false or biased data.
I always wonder about the stuff I find on the Web. I have long passed the point where I trust any of it. Granted, there must be accurate data on the web, but in some cases, it is hard to find unless you endlessly research links. The article/report we are discussing is repeated endlessly all over the place and the casual observer might conclude iOS is crap and Android is trouble free.
Perhaps it is correct. I need more data before I'll swallow it whole.
One thing I do know about iOS compared to Android is Apple locks it down so tight, virus problems do not exist. Not sure if an un-rooted Android is more susceptible to virus issues or not. I also know Apple/iOS does not always consider the version of iOS and the application. Like I said, iTunes installed incompatible versions of my Pages when I last Synced. Pages started to close unexpectedly. I tried a few things to fix the error and I started seeing incompatible version warnings.
All I worry about is me and all I can go on is my personal experiences. I can't begin to count how many Forced Closes I have with my Android phones. I cannot begin to explain why I occasionally have these issues. I simply accept them as part of the Android experience. And yes it might be due to my own doing.
I can count how many crashes I have had with my iPad. Typically, it is related to Cydia. When you JB, all bets are off. You start using things outside of the App Store and you can have issues. Apple is very good at controlling things, so bad apps are rare. But so are bad or buggy Cydia apps.
When I have a problem it is almost always because I am running an application not designed for my version of iOS. I have seen issues related to not preserving an iPhone's base-band. The person jailbroke his iPhone and suddenly, big piles of problems.
I do not think crashes are generally a part of the Android/iDevice user experience. They happen and until I know the model, the app that crashed, if the user was rooted/jailbroke, the version of Android/iOS, the intelligence level of the user and on and on . . . I''ll fall back on the old adage, #%&@ happens.
