@VanPerl My you are a sensitive little girl, aren't you!
I'm a dyed in wool Android user. But I'm not a blind, crowd-following, goose-stepping fangirl. Google and the Android manufacturers and mobile providers can all be legitimately criticized for the lousy job they've done getting all Android phones onto the latest Android level.
I shouldn't have had to go through a third party ROM install to get Android 4.2 onto my HTC Droid Incredible. The DInc came out around the same time as iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 can run iOS 7! So, why couldn't HTC and Verizon do at least that much for my DInc! Google, HTC, and Verizon *all* failed the Android community here and there's absolutely nothing wrong with pointing that out.
Kudos to Apple for giving the lion's share of their users their latest OS. Boo on all the Android players for not doing the same for us loyal Android users.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on iOS 7 Looks Great, But Does It Offer Anything For The Android Enthusiast?
@MatteoRodrigo I agree with everything you say. But I still won't buy an iPhone for the simple reason that I tend to update my phone on my own anyway and I'd lose so much function by going to iOS that it could reasonably be termed a downgrade. My three year old HTC Incredible, for instance, is running Android 4.2.
But yeah, hopefully, Google is starting to make the defragmentation a thing of the past by taking some of Android's better features out of the base OS. There's still a long way to go with that, but thankfully, the fragmentation after 4.0 matters a lot less than it did back in the pre-4.0 days.
5 months, 4 weeks ago on iOS 7 Looks Great, But Does It Offer Anything For The Android Enthusiast?
Sure it does! It offers Android 4.2 which a lot of us Android users DON'T HAVE YET! (Ducking and running)
OK, but it doesn't seem to work for me there. Do you need to enable it somehow?

I'm confused, wasn't this always there in Google Now? I distinctly remember leaving my phone on Google Now/Search screen and saying "Google" and having it prompt for voice input.
Good. Verizon's refusal to give us the better HTC phones (HTC One!) is starting to hurt them. They can't give away DNA! The "Droid" brand is dead. Bloatware should die with it.

Is all of this indicative of Google going more the HTML5 route with its own apps?

You know what? Given the choice, I'd rather they drop the bloatware in their products!
8 months ago on Verizon CEO Willing To Drop Contracts If The Customer Demands It
Yes, I still do. There is still no in flight wifi service on flights to China, which I do on a regular basis. Also no wifi on subways. I still have unlimited 4G/LTE data, but I can see where if that goes away, I'd likely buffer my music for rides in the car as well.

Does it suck less than the one on my S3?

I already removed whatsapp from my android because of the creepy number of permissions it requires. I imagine that would only get worse if Facebook takes it over.
1 year ago on Facebook to buy WhatsApp? Here’s what could be really interesting about that
Does Google have any idea how much of a parsing nightmare they created by naming a service "Google Now"? Sigh. Is it Google Now doing the pushing or Google at this moment in time?

On the contrary, I'd like to see a Nexus Razr Maxx, something with the Nexus brand that has a kickbutt battery is something I would buy in a heartbeat.

I really think that Google is setting up to jettison Motorola. They really only wanted them for their patent portfolio anyway.

This is the dumbest thing since paying for ringtones was a thing.

I love this idea, but why would they limit it to just the Note 2? The Galaxy S3 could use such a thing.

@BruceWThomasJr @TheDark_Knight Both of you need to get over yourselves. It's a free internet. Say what you want anywhere you want to say it. You're both entitled to your opinions even if the iPhone guy is wrong. :-)

4.5-4.8 works for me.
OMG! You're going to Stevens Tech! My alma mater!
Good luck to you!

I would agreewith you except for two reasons.
2. Google Wallet
