Have you ever had a recurring dream where a famous android user answers your email? Yeah me neither but I must be dreaming to have below the answers from one of the first Apple employees! The author of “APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur – How to Publish a book” had recently announced how Apple products lost their way and are no longer the end result of “Think different”. Below are the insights as to why he switched to Android. Enjoy!
1. What is your profession?
Author, publisher, and entrepreneur
2. What model Android was your first?
3.How many Androids have you owned?
About ten if you count all the tablets
4. Which one was your first rooted one?
I’ve never rooted one
5.How often do you frequent Android related forums?
6. Do you get tips from the Forums or do you give tips?
7.Why are you still with Android?
Because I can “think different” and want to have the best tool for the job.
8. Are you currently using the Latest version of Android?
I’m using whatever is on a Samsung Galaxy SIII AT&T and a Nexus 7. One of the shortcomings of the Android world is that it’s very fragmented because of multiple handset manufacturers and carriers. This is one area where the Apple experience is cleaner.
9. What is Android biggest Flaw?
I wish the email icon would display how many new messages have come in.
10. What is your most favorite ROM?
I don’t even know which ROM I’m using—or how to find out!
All these answers should indicate that I’m not a propeller head. I just use the best tool…
