    The reason to to say that flash is going the way of the dinosaur was not rooted in ego - it was fact and no one with a modicum of forward thinking will disagree. But until HTML5 becomes the dominant vehicle for web media - Flash should still be supported. Even if they just disrespected it and called it "legacy" support.

    Not supporting it at all reaks of ego-trippin' to me.

    As fas as Apple's future without Jobs - I agree. There are many people with the knowhow to make great products. But without the ringleader/firestarter that Jobs is, I believe Apple products & designs will sink (Regress is perhaps a better word) back to the dreaded "ho-hum" status that so many of its competitors suffer from. At that point, the only thing that would justify the price premium is their marketing campaigns.

    Any one see Ratatouille ? Its kinda like when the head chef of that restaurant died, and his understudy just slapped his name on a bunch of frozen dinners and totally ruined the vibe.

    I would like to see HIM do better? what does he think he's doing? does he think he's going to be better than Jobs and Apple? i dont think so. Apple will go on, and his company will fail as it does today

    Secondly you mentioned one crucial thing...Apple iOS is closed junk without jailbraking (you can't even change a damn theme without it for ****s sakes)...that's why after 3 years of using it I switched (and trust me I will NEVER go back)...because I just got sick of praying how long will it take some1 to jailbreak the firmware before I can upgrade (which you can count on being longer and longer as the time goes by).
    Additionally to that I hate being forced to upgrade every 2 years (even though I do), just because someone else decided that my phone is obsolete now.

    So I do have extensive experience with both, and am not just a fanboy.
    With Android at least once you do r00t, Boot S-Off and Radio S-Off you are set for life and you never have to pray again.

    I don't get it. Why does every news thread turn into Android v. iOS? Why are Android supremacists even here?

    Idk why I said "Android supremacists" just improvising.

    I'm sure steve has already thought well ahead and has chosen his successor and is grooming him/her to take over. Apple may not be the same without sj and although we wish him all the best, a speedy recovery, and a long life, we all know he will leave apple in good, capable, and responsible hands.

    Android has been out as long as the iPhone has. Remember the tmobile g1? And now android has just started to outsell within the past year or so. Keep in mind android had to be released on all 4 carriers to outsell apple which until recently has only been on 1.

    Virgin is releasing (though Target has started selling it early) a new Android phone for $150, with a $25 plan and no contract. This is where Android is going to really hit iOS hard: the budget market.

    Sure, right now Apple is sitting pretty. But I'm sure Motorola felt the same way about their RAZR and we all know how that ended.

    Holy ****!!! How is this about how ANDROID is beating Apple in the market?! This is a Netgear vs. Apple thread, meaning nothing to do with Android.

    Apple's OS you can literally do anything you want after jailbreaking it, much more so than Android will be capable of, ever.

    All companies try to make phones with "superior" hardware, yet don't realize software is the key. And Apple's software always triumphs that Android trash.
    I mean seriously, how does a phone with 5 mp (iphone) have better pictures than the 8 mp droids etc etc? How does a phone with a slower processor have better multi touch capabilities (iphone) than any of the jerky/sluggish screens that all Android phones have? I could go on and on and on. Android will never beat Apple's "closed" software. They will never outsell Apple's hardware, they will not get anywhere even if something happens to Steve Jobs.

    Same goes here, please explain further...I love these one liner statements with no arguments behind them.
    Without that it's nothing more than just personal opinionated puffs and rants.

    Secondly you mentioned one crucial thing...Apple iOS is closed junk without jailbraking (you can't even change a damn theme without it for ****s sakes)...that's why after 3 years of using it I switched (and trust me I will NEVER go back)...because I just got sick of praying how long will it take some1 to jailbreak the firmware before I can upgrade (which you can count on being longer and longer as the time goes by).
    Additionally to that I hate being forced to upgrade every 2 years (even though I do), just because someone else decided that my phone is obsolete now.

    So I do have extensive experience with both, and am not just a fanboy.
    With Android at least once you do r00t, Boot S-Off and Radio S-Off you are set for life and you never have to pray again.

    I love idiots who think their smart. You have not researched each type of Android/Apple Phone like I have. You say without jailbreaking you cant change theme? Actually you can. You can change the background pics + lockscreen, its been there for some firmwares now. Have fun with your rooting and unresponsive phone.

    Oh and,

    How is Android outselling Apple's iPhone exactly? Look carefully at how many the iPhone has sold each quarter compared to the Android phones ROFL. Last I saw, iPhone sells around 16 million, while Android sells 1-2 million each phone.

    Companies make more Android phones than they can sell ROFLLL.
    Thats why their phones are trash, they don't stick to one-two phones which are superior, but instead make ****** phones constantly thinking they will make money.

    Android will always be trash, until they can fully utilize their hardware and software capabilities. Like I said before, I cannot stand phones which have better hardware but multi touch capabilities are pure ****. Apple = butter multi touch, Android = Crap, jerky unresponsive. Which one is better?
