Patrick B. Gibson:
Meanwhile, Google, specifically Android, has been steadily improving its entire platform. To me, it still doesn’t have the same quality of polish and feel that Apple software does. However, it’s getting harder to argue that point, especially since their web services all tend to Just Work. Features like Google Now and near-instant voice commands are starting to give Android a serious leg up on iOS.
Hard to argue with his point, his solution, and his doubt that it will happen.
Apple has a serious problem: in this era of deep social- and web-service integration, their products don’t “just work” nearly as often as they used to.
