My personal phone runs Android, my tablet runs iOS, my work computer runs OSX (for most tasks) and Windows 8 for others, my home server runs FreeBSD, (most of) my work servers run Windows 2008 Server, some of my utilitarian work servers run CentOS, and my telecom-related servers at work run a modified version of RHEL.

I don't know how else to put it - I don't give a flying fuck about platform wars. Only non-geeks still argue about this shit, in 2013. Being that I'm not a mouth breathing hyper-religious moron in the technical sense, I'm perfectly capable of using whatever you put in front of me, to get the job done. In other words, I'm a professional, not a hobbyist. I earn my bread making what you put in front of me, do what you wished it could. That's how I earn my living.

This isn't an Apple vs Android thread (or it shouldn't be). That's just stupid. This is a "What can we accomplish no matter what OS we run" thread. Or it should be.

If you've never written a line of C in your life, don't give me any bullshit about your favorite operating system being "open", as if you even care. I'll call you on it. Use what floats your boat (I certainly do), but don't try and bullshit me.

I cannot post in threads on my phone with any ease as it keeps 'bumping' me up to the start of the post. Its a real bitch when I am quoting someone as it fucks up the quote table.

Dear god it was bad enough before especially with this craptastic arfcom editor. Now if you allow it to autocorrect a word, it somehow puts that whole word up at the beginning, but in the quote as well, completely fucking everything up.

actually, it was adobe that stopped supporting android. you can still install flash but it only works on a couple of browsers such as firefox. chrome does not support it last i knew. i am running ICS on tablets as well as my SIII and still have flash.

Apple is great, if you enjoy proprietary bullshit and parting with your wallet.
Unless you compiled Android from source yourself, and managed to install it on your phone with all the code for the radios, etc, you're holding "proprietary bullshit" in your hand.



Everything is free with Android. Is everything free with Apple?


All apps that I use on my iPhone 5 have been free. In fact, I spent more on the "free" Android apps than I ever have on Apple apps. Don't get too hung up on Android being open-source. All smart phone software is proprietary (and closed) to a large degree. Apple is more tightly controlled than other companies, but those controls also mean that the apps typically run better. I paid a little more for my iPhone because I wanted a better experience and better quality. I do the same with other consumer goods, as well. And man is it nice not to have to do a battery pull EVERY SINGLE DAY to get the phone working again.


if you had to do a battery pull every day then YOU fucked something up. the only time i have had to do a battery pull was when flashing my SIII. i dont even turn my phone off unless i fall asleep and forget to plug it in before i do. i dont remember the last time i turned my phone off and my phone runs 100%. hell, i dont remember the last time i had a "forced close" popup. some people just cant handle android which is why they should stick to crapple.

Well, there's your problem! That, and you really should switch to Chrome if you want the default browser; as that is default for all Android phones now.

If someone could tell me how to change the settings in chrome where text will fit to page width.. I'd use it.

You can't with Chrome. It doesn't reflow the text, which is just stupid. I sold an Ipad because it wouldn't do that.


Then, I ain't using it.

I tried Firefox... had the same problem.

Oh well.

Haven't had an update issue, but my second Droid Razor in thirteen months just failed. The first one failed within days of arriving, so Verizon replaced it with a refurb that only had a 90-day warranty. It failed last week and Verizon told me I had to buy a brand new Droid as the 90-day warranty was up. I told them no way and they agreed to send a free replacement Razor. We'll see how long this one lasts. If it fails, I'm switching to an iPhone. So far, not impressed with the Droid.



ETA: After reading some of the above posts, maybe it WAS an update issue. Sigh...
