About life as an info-tech - arguing (preaching?) about what tickles my mind. I like Internet Protocol (IP). Which version? Never mind. But I run on IP. Yes, I do ~/`~/`~/` on IP!

Regular guy? Maybe. Was lucky enough to go places on foot, riding, driving, sailing, flying and even dreaming. I do tricks connecting tech-devices and teaching device users - that gave me the wherewithal to go places in Africa, Arabia, Europe, America and want to go to Asia, then into space to Mars (dream on, dreamer) ! Childhood pass time was always in a mechanical workshop fixing something - so i tinker a lot. I like meeting and knowing people.

Android beats iOS


Just a few months since the demise of Steve Jobs, a hot debate has been ignited by the other Steve. I read on technobuffalo.com that Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, aired his thoughts on Android and iOS, admitting that Android has surpassed the iPhone’s functionality in many ways. In fact, there’s one feature in particular Wozniak likes on Android that would have certainly left Jobs fuming: voice commands. Woz said that Android’s voice command capabilities are handled much better, revealing “I have a lower success rate with Siri than I do with the voice built into the Android.”

Jobs candidly admitted his passionate hatred toward Android and went as far as vowing to destroy the OS “because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go to thermonuclear war on this.” Woz has taken a more level-headed approach, saying both OSs have their pros and cons.


Woz said that his primary phone is the iPhone because of its beauty, "but I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.” In addition to Woz’s voice functionality complaint, the man believes Android has a huge advantage with its navigation capabilities. He also opined that Android gets a bad rap in the user-friendliness department, “If you’re willing to do the work to understand it a little but, well I hate to say it, but there’s more available in some ways.”

So what Android phone does Wozniak prefer? Even with access to Google’s latest and greatest, Wozniak likes the Droid Razr. Still, Woz believes the iPhone is the best overall smartphone, a device he highly recommends to folks looking to get into the smartphone market. ”The iPhone is the least frightening thing. For that kind of person who is scared of complexity, well, here’s a phone that is simple to use and does what you need it to do.”

These comments are what makes Wozniak such a cool guy. 

The man respects both sides of the coin, and in the case of smartphone OSs, doesn’t resort to bashing. Instead, Woz’s comments reveal his inner geekness and love for tech, merely pointing out that both Android and iOS have their good points as well as bad.

Having gone through the above, i remembered that the geek in me had voiced similar sentiments before the geek in Woz did - not that am at his level. No.

what is clear is that it was us marines not libyans who freed tripoli. the liberator as the eu likes to stress did not infact play as bigger role as the small footages of sporadic fighting implied. they walked into a tripoli that had been for over 9 months the subject of a brutal nato onslaught which masaccared the libyan people and lay the blame directly onto muammar gaddaffi. they used the most sofisticated technology to bomb jamm and track prominent libyan leaders. What we will see now is another somalia. Lets wait and see if uganda is safe from the americans.
