Opinion: Tim Cook’s unimaginative jabs at Android are just damage control

by: Bogdan PetrovanSeptember 19, 2013
I set out to read BusinessWeek’s new interview with Apple’s top executives hoping for some provocative, discussion-provoking statements. Instead, CEO Tim Cook, seconded by his lieutenants, served up a reheated soup of passive-aggressive jabs, truisms, and hollow arguments.

iOS 6 fragmentation more evident in iPhone, iPad and iPod touch universe, but is it really an issue?

by: Chris SmithSeptember 22, 2012
One of the valid arguments behind adopting an iOS device is the fact that Apple’s devices are always receiving updates on time and that carriers have no say in when these updates are rolled out – that also means they have no bloatware included in any iPhone version.

Diversity vs Fragmentation: OSM graphs show the many faces of our favorite green robot

by: Mike AndriciMay 17, 2012

Before we get into dissecting a recent report from the Open Signal Maps database, here is what you need to know about the originators of this report: the Open Signal Maps database is an open (duh!) project that has assumed the task of creating coverage maps of 2G, 3G and 4G coverage, as well as Wi-Fi access points throughout the world. For now, such maps are only available only for the US, UK, Italy, Germany and Spain, but OSM is hard at work to extend its reach.

Isn’t Android’s own F-word just a nuisance that gets blown to enormous proportions due to exaggerations and [...]

Google Planning To Make Android A Closed System?

by: Aerol BibatAugust 24, 2011

Android is quickly becoming one of the most popular operating systems around and this is mostly because of its open nature. However, not all is as it seems. Many open-source advocates have criticized Google for keeping the operating system one of the most “closed” open platforms ever. Before you get confused, Google’s Chris DiBona says that’s all nonsense, pointing out the over 10 million lines of Android code that are under an open-source license.

However, with the recent purchase of Motorola Mobility by Google, this may soon change. It will be a big temptation for the search giant to close off Android, to gain more control of their [...]
