Re: All hail Tim Cook
Not useless article at all. It shows how FRAGMENTED the Android OS Version landscape is, which is very tough on App Developers (like me). When I build an Android App, I can't really count on the "latest and greatest" OS features. I usually have to go several versions back for testing and API calls. But for my iPhone Apps, I have a VERY high confidence that the majority of iOS users will have the latest OS, or at worst one minor version back.
Like the article said (if you had read it more carefully) it is the fault of the CARRIERS not Google/Android. They have to "certify" the OS upgrades with their hardware/systems before releasing it themselves. Apple does not have that middleman - they can go straight to the users.
And to say Apple users are "continuously updat[ing] to remain happy/secure with their purchase" is absolutely ridiculous. Apple makes it fast, easy, and automatic to upgrade, and there have been no major headaches or bugs in doing so to date.
It sounds like it is you, oh brave anonymous poster, that has some "narcissitic" tendencies.
