That's the core trade offs between the devices leaving the pool of apps available in their respective "stores/repositories" aside....to me at least.

Combustibility is a good word... because that's how I feel on Android most of the time... " just a matter of time until something goes wrong " kind of though in the back of my mind.

But yeah, Apple has that edge because they have such limited hardware that it gives them more room to be able to polish of drivers and bugs and get everything the way it should be. But personally after jailbreaking, there isn't much you can't do to it, in terms of customizing ( GUI, Lockscreen, Layout/Size of icons, Dock ) everything about the "feel" of the device.

I suppose, although with jailbreaking I have to restore my device before I could ever even try to take it in for any hardware support. I just feel abit more at home with the android way of doing things and I love the variation in hardware. that said, I'm also pretty please with my iphone and have figured out how to do just about with it

And if you don't have your shsh or whatever blobs saved, and there is no untethered for the current ios you are running, you are screwed.

Geez guys...I feel old school thinking "it's a bloody phone...why doesn't anyone call anymore? I don't get texts so what's so hard to make a damn phone call?". Honestly, I blame stupid teenage girls for the direction phones went. Now I can't find a half decent plan that can compete with my current one for the same amount of minutes and night/weekend hours. I fear people won't be able to talk in the future with the crap I've seen in life.

If I was going to use a "dumb terminal" as fad pads and dumbfones are...I'd pick android any day of the week. I actually find myself rather confused by things that go on in Apple software.

Shouldn't take 3 hours. Jailbreak -> SSH into -> transfer files -> Done

Do you ever turn your phone off? Not very useful when it's off tongue.gif

No real need to worry about tethering, unless you're the kind of person to use your phone till it dies. And if you are, you have bigger problems to worry about, cause doing that does wonders for the battery.

I don't even have a phone. Just tried to help a friend out a while back though that had accidentally upgraded to ios 6 and was screwed. If I had a phone it would be a Lumia 920 or android with no need to jailbreak. :P

No... no need to jailbreak. Just root... oh wait thumb.gif

Rooting and jailbreaking are essentially the same thing tongue.gif

I can see what you mean about some system tools not being GNU but lets face it, with out the GNU any unix-like desktop system today would not even be close to as good or well developed. the distro maker can call it, but referring to arch/debian/ubuntu/fedora together I do think it should be called GNU/Linux.
as for android, I'm going to ask this- you might hate it, but is it better then iOS? I'm going to guess most linux GNU/Linux users would say yes.

 

I do believe your logic here is in error. as you are speaking hypothetical to defend your point. I'm not saying GNU is not important, I'm just saying i think the debate or what we call it not important.

 

I can honestly see what has stallman's feathers in a ruffle, here you are, you created the most important movement in human history, and all the tools to facilitate that, and some 20 year old kid comes along and steals all your glory. I've seen this guy speak, and when it comes to this subject it comes off as childish, "I had it first, its mine, mine, mine mine", you half expect him to jump around and knock himself to the floor and kick his arms and legs wildly in the air.

 

I think people will continue to call it whatever they feel most comfortable with calling it.

 

as for mobile OS's, windows CE 5.0/6.0 was actually my favorite. I have a android tablet (a tf101) and a phone (LG doubleplay, i'd avoid that one if you decide to get a android phone), and I've owned iOS devices in the past (2 iphones, 3 touches). If i had had the money, I would've been sporting a nifty New iPad (iPad 3). I've asked for a iPad mini for xmas :).

 

I'm huge mac os x fan, I just can't justify the price of a new mac configured the way I want it, when I can typically build a comparable PC or one that is superior in every aspect, for a third of the price. I use linux as my main OS not cause its free, its better than the alternative which is not :).

 

as for which mobile OS is better, they both have their advantages. I think iOS is superior in it integration with itself, but i dislike that I would require windows to sync/transfer anything to it (or even to activate it). when it comes to android, I really dislike it, I think the latest android's (like ics, jellybean) have been in the right direction, that google has finally found its footing.

 

now device tech specs, hands down, android tablets gets my votes, except in display, its hard to defeat apple in that area. My sister has an iPad first gen, and i have the tf101, and in comparission of the display quality for the iPad, its much crispier and the colors are much more vibrant, and the touch aspect of the screen, the ipad is a bit more responsive and smoother.

 

I still hold out for a nice ubuntu tablet, and i hope the rumour mills about them coming out in 2013/2014 are true as i stand by my earlier statement, i would be camping out in front of the store the day of launch and have the credit card melting in my hand as i bought as many as i could :).
