Android: Third among equals
Posted on 1-Oct-2014 11:50

Google, Apple and Microsoft all have decent mobile operating systems. Last year I spent a week working exclusively with each. My conclusion is you won’t go far wrong with any of them. All three cover the basics adequately. None of them is perfect and none has a fatal flaw. Each has pluses and minuses. You […]... Comments (Comments)

Posted on 30-Sep-2014 14:32

Apple’s demonstrator laid an iPhone 6 and an iPhone 6 Plus side-by-side on the coffee table. He asked “which do you prefer?” My instinctive first answer was to pick the smaller iPhone 6. Yet once the hands-on testing got underway I found myself returning repeatedly to the iPhone 6 Plus. You can read in-depth reviews of both phones […]... Comments (Comments)
