Meh. Have both. IPhone crashes far less than my xoom. The only thing I really like better about my Xoom is the multimedia dock, which has incredible sound for such a small speaker. Makes it into a great bedside Internet radio/clock. Flash argument is barely rellevant, as Flash performance is one step above not having it at all. I so wanted it to really work well in that regard.

IMO. Never really bought into this Apple hate.

"The truth about piracy sure does hurt, don't it?"

After hearing activision, ea, and boobiesoft whine so much, it's nice to occasionally hear the truth: piracy is pretty much irrelevant.

Is there any reason why someone would switch to an iPhone now? I can see upgrading from a previous model may make sense if you're used to it and you have apps (which I assume transfer to new models), but if you don't have an iPhone, why? What innovation does the iPhone 5 have, over the 4S or over other high end phones? It evolves 4S many features but doesn't add anything new, does it? Is 4G new to the iPhone?

I wouldn't swap my old SGS2 for an iPhone 5, never mind my current SGS3.

Having both devices, I have to admit that the general quality of the apps on iOS are better. I have the same app, in many cases, across both platforms. Be it Tweetdeck, NHL Gamecenter, or Pandora, the android versions just have too many quirks (landscape not working in all screens in tweetdeck is f-ing stupid, IMO, and Pandora not allowing you to view precious tracks, well, ditto). The other thing I find annoying is knowing that the Tegra chip has the capability for amazing graphics, but nothing decent exists for games, whereas iOS has some amazing Unreal Engine games on board.

I like the open nature of android, but even with ice cream sandwich, it just seems to lack polish...but I continue to hope that changes.

Again, IMHO.

Actually, I think I remember reading Xytol was quite good for your teeth. Was a while ago, though. Things may have changed.

I suspect that it is less Apple, and more the holders of the media (Sony/Columbia, Virgin, EMI, Capitol, RCA, etc.)

Didn't jobs write an open letter to the music industry calling for an end to DRM?

Gotta admire Bruce....always putting it to the man!

You know, ever heard of Xylit? or Xylitol? Instead of sugar, this stuff is actually good for you and your teeth, and tastes sweeter than sugar. Only downside is it's expensive as hell.

I think Dentene (or one of the other chewing gums) uses that. Maybe it was Trident...

Bah... sugar drinks.. how can anyone drink that? Why would anyone WANT to drink that... mystery

It takes far less sugar than it does high fructose corn syrup for the same level of sweetness. The only reason they use it in the US is because it costs a fraction of the cost of sugar here. Dollars savings rules over calorie savings...

Actually, it's not a price thing, but scarcity (throwback doesn't cost more than regular). Goddamn corn farmers' lobby made laws that limit the amount of sugar that can be imported into the country, leaving companies like Coke and Heinz NO CHOICE but to use HFCS in the majority of their production. It's a goddamn racket, all because corporations took over agriculture and endlessly seek ways to produce more and more so that they can make more and more money. They weren't happy with just providing corn to eat, they want to find 11 zillion other ways to shove it in our face.


No doubt it's that way now (yeah, ethanol fuels are a part of that mix, too), but back when they made the choice, I think it was the other way around. I could be wrong, though (wouldn't be the first time).

I wouldn't worry all that much about soda expiration dates, my friend. I still remember when they didn't have them, and conventional wisdom was that a can of Coke had a half-life at least that of a Twinkie.
