Must Have Been the Liver Talking

October 2010:

“We think the ten-inch screen size is the minimum size required to create great tablet apps . . . the current crop of seven-inch tablets are going to be DOA–dead on arrival. Their manufacturers will learn the painful lesson that their tablets are too small and increase the size next year, thereby abandoning both customers and developers who jumped on the seven-inch bandwagon with an orphaned product. Sounds like lots of fun ahead.”

    iOS now looks like iOS 7 years ago.

    OSX now looks like iOS 10 years ago.

    Microsoft has tried to change, update and is into more risk taking.

    I don’t have a flag in either camp, I use Linux and Android. If I was forced to choose between an Apple based or Windows based device, I would go Windows.

    Uh, no! Windows devices do NOT look more innovative.
    I’m not pro-iPad or anything, but Microsoft sucks.
    They look like they’re trying to steal Apple’s ideas.
    They’re even using the same fonts as Apple.

    Is it me or are Windows devices looking more innovative than this Apple crap?

  • Not a Hater

    Amazing. Not.

    Despite my recommendations, my wife is a devoted crApple fan, but even she thinks this mini-iPad is a joke. Too big to put in your pocket/purse, and too small to view the interwebs efficiently. It’s a device without a purpose.
