Right. Any complaints or issues they can announce updates tomorrow and we can all turn on our computers and have it the second it comes out. Done.
Usability and convenience.
Just because something looks and it's more complicated to use doesn't mean it is more powerful. I think the Fandroids are lured by the geeky complexity of the Android that somehow it is better because it is complicated.
The hardest thing to do is to make something that is very powerful, very easy to use. Apple believes that we, as the end users, shouldn't be bothered with troubleshooting and managing the OS. All iPhone users do is just USE THE PHONE. That's it. No task killers or let's see which application is running and which on is using the most resources so we can manage it. WHY? You are the end user.
You shouldn't have to worry about anything but what you want to DO. When I first got the iPhone, the first couple of days, I spent time closing apps from the multitasking bar. I wasn't used to just not worrying about it coming from Blackberry and Windows.
Now, I just use the thing. I don't close anything. I don't bother with anything. I open what I want. I use it, I click the home button. It's gone. I don't care what it is doing in the background. iOS takes care of it. It doesn't slow down my phone, it doesn't drain my battery. It performs flawlessly every time.
This is why, regardless of how many cores the new Android phones have, people will still line up for blocks to buy the new iPhone, because it is USABLE, SIMPLE and the best quality phone. The End.
They don't have to worry about it. They use the phone. Done. This is what users want. They want to deal with the content, with their apps, with what THEY want to do. They don't want to spend time fucking around with software and roots and cracks.
I still haven't found ONE reason to jailbreak my phone. I don't think I ever will.
