Oh yes, android is so very fragmented but Google is doing their part in keeping things in tip-top shape (of course!). The damn platform is an ugly copy and it’s all over the place. But hey, the g-boys can do no wrong. Meanwhile, Windows Phone has absolutely no chance. No matter what Microsoft and Nokia pull out of their hats. Even with one of the best phones in the market and the best camera ever seen on a phone. Why? Not because of the operating system. Oh no! It’s cute and cuddly and intuitive and fast—and works oh so fine (hits all the soft spots the tech fanboys like, you see…). Because there is no official Instagram app in the windows phone marketplace!!! Seriously?? C’mon people. This is getting to be a joke. YOU are a joke. This is not journalism. 6th graders have more objectivity than you!!
I am really getting sick and tired of this… The so-called experts’ complaints have been piling up like crazy over the past few months. According to the various claims, W8 is supposed to be confusing, difficult to use, so on and so forth… Yet another ridiculous claim that I recently read about is that it is supposedly too costly to retrain the workforce. Seriously?? You have employees who touch their smartphone screens every 10 seconds and (I’m making a wild guess here…) type documents using their PC keyboards in their offices once in a while… But they are somehow overwhelmed when they use an operating system that lets them do both!? If that’s the case, let me give you some Carlinesque advice: GET NEW EMPLOYEES!!!
Or maybe you are inconvenienced by the half-second it takes to swipe the charm bar into view when you want to do a search (on ANY screen, app, or program, no less…) I say, “Hey sport, I feel your pain! Your biceps are hurting. After all, finger curls on your smartphone touchscreen is just about the only exercise you have been doing since 2007”.
I have an advice to these tech-bloggers: Admit that you are unimaginative, totally terrified of change, and completely invested in that App-Droid ecosystem you so fashionably bought into. Also, stop pretending that you are capable of writing objective reviews that have any rational arguments in them. Get a new job, and leave the product reviews to grown-ups.
