A point-for-point reply:
– Mounting as a storage device
Yeah, that’ll make file management so much easier…with all the apps actually using the files not knowing where they are located. And no, iTunes is just fine, and so is iCloud.
– The Home Screen
Greg thinks that widgets are the real deal, calling the home screen “liberated” with them. Fair enough, but I’m pretty sure most of us like fast access to 20 apps on our home screens. Widgets are for the Notification Center.
– System-Wide File System Access
See my reply to his first point. Also Greg, have a look at the various Android forums to check out how much fun it is when apps talk to each other – such a joy for the users…no mess at all…and security is just peachy over there too…
– App Management
Bogus all together. Ever since iOS5 apps download simultaneously. Same goes for updates. Ever heard of “Update all”? Nice little feature…
– Format Support
Apple doesn’t support many propriatory formats because of additional cost to the consumer (licensing) and no added benefit. Bonus hint: Handbrake.
– Flick To Scroll
Really? What kind of websites to you frequent? It’s suffiecient on all the websites I view to scroll twice to get to the bottom of them. Wanna go back up faster? Tap the area around the digital clock once.
How did this end up on macgasm.net? Seriously.
