    As the CEO of Apple, I didn't really expect him to say anything different. What I do believe, is that he doesn't believe all of the negative stuff he's saying about Android. He definitely sees some things that he is concerned about. I mean, they're doing commercials about the noise canceling mic on the back for heavens sake. They have nothing new to bring to the table.

    He forgets that some of us don't want his idea of an "experience" We follow Burger King's motto - Have it your way.

    Apple is going to be in the same boat as Pontiac eventually

    I don't think that Apple compares themselves to other companies, just to themselves. So they try to improve their devices each year and don't concern themselves with being leaps and bounds behind everyone else in the tech industry.

    Didn't Steve Wozniak say he like his Android alot??? I'm sure he probably uses an iPhone also. But who wouldn't say their product is better then the competition!

    If I recall, I think Woz buys new phones at such a rate that he doesn't use the same one for longer than few months.

    Honestly, as much as I dislike Apple products, I have to say, that I bet Google's CEO would say similar things about Apple. As a CEO of a certain company, it's his job to promote that company, even if it means badmouthing his competitors.

    Apple just hasn't impressed me lately. Everything up until this new phase of iPad Mini/Retina Display/iPhone 5 has been pretty decent progress. But now Apple is going into this phase of making the same thing but bigger, or smaller, or more Retina-y, and we're seeing an real inverse in market standing.

    Microsoft and Android has all of the innovation whilst Apple recycles the same ideas. Whatever happened to "think different"?

    When you are used to one OS, using another one will feel confusing. As someone who is more familiar with Android, I found iOS to be rather confusing when I first used it.

    "Cook has played with Microsoft's Surface, an unspecified Galaxy device (or two) and other non-iOS machines, and the experience wasn't pleasant."

    and the experience wasn't pleasant until we found something in it we could patent first!

    Maybe is just me but this is what I'm thinking.

    Tim cook, happily says that he wants the apple user experience to be "simplicity" right Ok, I can get that.

    But this leads me to assume that Tim thinks we are all thick as two short planks and as such use his os, made for people thick as two short planks, which will in turn, over time, lead said users to lose the capacity to understand more complex things, leading to a degradation of the gene pool and a round lower IQ's as the generations pass...

    This is either genius in terms of Darwins law - natural selection, or the blind stupidity of a simplistic minimalist cult leader trying to overthrow the world with his own dictation. Either way, simple things, simple minds. At least other os's encourage you to use that muscle in your head for self development and evolution.

    That sounds like a gripe against all new tech rather than just Apple!

    Kids text each other even if in the same room for example.

    Had to use a Mac in school - all the programs worked the same, I just couldn't figure out how to search for a lost file if I hit save, rather than save as. I finally either stuck on the file extension or named the file with an obscenity.

    Got familiar with a Palm PDA, and had no trouble with Android. The stuff I had to learn was rooting. Palm didn't have all the extra junk and you could delete a lot of it. I appreciated how efficient the Palm apps were.

    Using Ubuntu for regular computing isn't bad - trying to find an answer to a problem is lousy. A lot of the info was written prior to 2010, the last time someone asked the question.

    What annoys me is the generalities. "Everyone will love this" and all of the above are just as guilty of it.

    I've mostly got my phone the way I like it. Like an Iphone, it works. Unlike an Iphone, I can change my mind and redo the whole phone if I feel like it.

    Re Tim Cook: Poor baby - he had to THINK about what he was doing rather than preaching to the choir.

    I agree with some that I have no idea how to use an iPhone. Okay, I can launch an app, but to do just basic stuff confuses me (like settings and what not).
    We have an iTouch at work we use just for Pandora. As in, Pandora is the only app installed. And it still crashes from time to time. :rolleyes:

    At least Woz is a reasonable guy:

    I don't recall Schmidt or Page denouncing Apple's products, only their business model of suing competition. There's a difference between promoting your own products and services, and ridiculing your competitors. That's a particularly pungent habit of Ballmer, and it's not flattering Cook either. And I think it generally sends the opposite message to consumers.
