I just made the transition to an Android phone, moving over from an iPhone. I have to say, so far so good.
My favorite thing? The fact that when I plug it into the computer, I can go in and look at the folders for all the data. It’s not much, but it speaks to a different type of interface. When I first started messing around with computers, I used DOS. The beautiful thing about DOS is that you have control over where everything goes, provided that you know some of the commands.
I always thought that Windows was ridiculous. Here was this resource-intensive program that would do all the things that you needed to do, but a lot less efficiently. It made it easier for people, but it made us depend on more powerful systems in order to do the same stuff because of that additional level of interface.
Plug in an iPhone, and you have to go through the proprietary operating system to do anything. Yes, it’s easier, but try and do anything the old fashioned way, and you get screwed. Or confused.
Or maybe I’m just too old…
