    I love the Android platform. It is far from perfect (what is?), but I cannot see myself even considering anything else for the time being. All this said, I am amazed by the explosion of Android popularity over the past few years. Why, do you ask? I just feel as though the platform is pretty difficult for the average user and it takes a good amount of tweaking and setting up to really get a smooth phone. Of course I say this as an ex-Linux geek, so maybe this is all driven by my need to make sure everything runs a certain way. It's just that iProducts are so simple and straightforward. Ditto for the Blackberry. But when I see someone with an Android, I stop and think, "does this person actually realize how capable that device in their hands is? Do they have apps besides Facebook and the NY Times?" lol

    I should have a better opinion of my species!

    Yeah, but the sad part is that I guarantee you that over half of the android owners don't know, don't know what root is, or anything else like that. Its still a slick platform for even the average Joe... Give it a couple years and watch it over take and cripple apple. But yeah, I think the same thing when I see someone else with an android.

    I think the same way. I'm always showing my handful of friends new things or ways I've modded my phone and they said they would have never even thought some of the things I do were possible.
