I would liken it to a car vs a train. A train is a very simple technology for someone to get from station to station, but as soon as you want to go somewhere which doesn't have a station, you can no longer just take the train. A car allows you to go from anywhere to anywhere, but is more difficult to use.Quote:
Android has more flexibility but consequently is perhaps a little more confusing to master to the technophobe.
Both have their place, but a car is a more robust general purpose transport option.
(Note, I don't drive... So for me, I'm stuck with public transport, which on the whole does me fine, but it isn't flexible).
I think in many cases, the Apple gear forces them into becoming more IT literate, as they hit something they can't do, and are forced to learn other ways of doing it. Then they discover Android and realise that Apple stuff was ridiculously restrictive.Quote:
I think as people become more IT literate more people will become frustrated with Apple making all the decisions for them somewhere along the line.
