Defending The Android

I was among the first people I knew to jump on the iPod bandwagon years and years ago.  I spent hours upon  hours downloading my favorite songs onto my iPod.  One of the benefits of working in radio is access to all kinds of music!  Everything was great until the battery quit taking a charge.   Of course there’s no easy & cheap way to replace those batteries.  So my only option was to buy a newer generation iPod.

My wife was nonplussed with the iPod and then when the new one had to be purchased because of battery issues that was the straw.  She became anti-Apple.  And after a while I came to agree.  To me anyway the whole propitiatory structure felt a little monopolistic.  Now I know some are Apple fans and to those people I say, good for you!

When the time came for our first smartphones the decision was simple Android not Apple.

Now research shows that single people using iPhones go on more first dates that people using Android, Blackberry, or Windows phones.  Which as first glance seems to be good news for iPhone users, right?

Isn’t another way to look at those numbers?  Seems that iPhone users were less will to commit to long term relationships.  I mean when a newer version comes out, which smartphone users are seen standing line lines most often.  They seem willing to dump their older version for something flashy and splashy.

I’ve been a married guy for a long long time, but it seems to me that if I were a single guy I’d want someone that wasn’t looking to jump ship at the first sign of something new.  I’d be looking for an Android Gal!
