Last week’s poll asked about political yard signs and whether you used them or not. While the vast majority of people said they didn’t, with reader Kassie noting the political types find them to be useless because “signs don’t vote,” I have to admit I find them to be totally useless. However, this election season I’m seeing more signs related to the marriage amendment than anything else–aside from the Lakeville side of Flagstaff which is littered with Little signs supporting the man who helped get a ridiculous number of unnecessary changes passed to supposed stop the speeding which never occurs in the first place.
This week’s poll comes after I picked up my new iPhone5 last weekend and The Wife picked up her first smartphone ever with an iPhone4S. We moved to Verizon to take advantage of their LTE network since AT&T’s three locations in the Metro are unavailable to us. I know there are quite a few people, myself included, who feel their smartphone OS of choice is superior to the other but I want to hear from you why you chose the one you did and why you feel the need to stick with it.
I tried a few Android phones over the years, including the highly touted Galaxy SIII, and found them to be poorly constructed, cheap feeling, and running an OS which I long ago abandoned on the desktop because it was never provided an acceptable experience even though I really loved the underlying system (FWIW, Lazy Lightning has been running on Linux since before Day 1 and will likely always run on it). This feeling has continued through to mobile phones and regardless of what Androids fans say, it has a very long way to go to become as polished as iOS.
So which do you use and why? With many studies showing that a majority of Android users are planning on switching to iOS, with very few iOS users planning to go the other way, which camp do you fall in here? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
