You make a valid argument Bricky. Tell me about your week. I haven't talked to you in a while.
I went to work from Monday - Friday and it was just a boring week. My highlights were watching the Lions game today and the CM Punk DVD. At least the weekend will be better because I'm going to the States for shopping tomorrow. What about you, how was your week?
I guess if you are an every day user then Android might not work for you... I've been using Linux for a long time and to be able to tweak the Android kernel to my liking, automatically puts it light years ahead of iOS and Windows 8 for me. It is not a terrible OS by any means. Yes there is some fracturing going on with Android and it's devices, but that really only applies to manufacturer software/drivers. The cool thing about Android is that you are not tied to the manufacturer software and drivers, you can install the latest and greatest of everything if you know how. Or you can write your own drivers, optimized to your liking. Saying "it's a shame people consider it worth buying" is just so incredibly wrong... The transparency, scalability, and potential of Android/Linux puts Windows and iOS/OS X to shame. But if tinkering isn't your thing, then ya, pick a newb friendly device.
Yeah, Android is leaps and bounds above anything Apple or Windows has ever put out.
