(Some Guy)   No more flash support for Android starting with 4.1. So does this mean Android users will stop biatching about the iPhone and its lack of flash?   (blogs.adobe.com) divider line 22

I'll still laugh at the iPhone, I just won't mention flash in the argument.

No, now I'll just complain about Android 4.1 not having flash, either.

Or complain that certain websites haven't updated their content to HTML5 (*cough*Amazon*cough*).

divx88: objective-c ... about all you need to make fun of any ios device. It falls under the same category as COBOL, it cripples the mind and therefore should be regarded as a criminal offense to teach or promote it's use.


Obj-C has some really awesome language features, and honestly, its memory management is the best thing since immutable memory, a la LISP. It's also a syntactically bizarre retrofit that combines the worst aspects of C with the worst aspects of C++ and hides it behind Ada-like syntax, except when it doesn't.

But iOS doesn't require that you develop in Obj-C anymore. They just recommend it.

Android 4.1? Thats like 2 operating systems from now... i'm still waiting for ICS on my Android.

likefunbutnot: My main complaints about iOS have to do with the inability to directly address network storage and its use of data sandboxing, which make files stored on an ithing accessible to only one application and disallow storage of files that don't have an associated app. All of which drive me completely insane.


Wow, that is crappy. My un-rooted Android can access files directly on my LAN. I can grab a Word doc, Excel sheet, mp3, video, whatever if I need it quickly.

phaseolus: tgambitg: phaseolus: Skimmed tfa, didn't notice any cutesy-poo dessert-based Android version nicknames, and rejoiced. Those annoy me more than they ought to.

Would you rather them use Jungle Cat based version nicknames(OSX)? Or City based nicknames(Windows)? Or Alliterative Animal based nicknames(Ubuntu Linux)?

The only reason those don't annoy me quite so much is a.) no one cares what the hell Windows OS versions' nicknames are, and b.) I don't have any reason to pay attention to the others.

Me, I like the numbers just fine. Occasionally I'll run across some bad writing by fanboys who assume everyone's going to have the whole list memorized, and then I get angry because I have to go somewhere else to figure out if Zabaglione is more current than Tres Leches Cake and how they both compare to That-Orange-Pudding-at-the-Indian-Buffet-Place.


It's not that hard to figure out which one is newer, here they are in order of release...

Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean

See the pattern there?

downstairs: RexTalionis: Or complain that certain websites haven't updated their content to HTML5 (*cough*Amazon*cough*).

Yeah, but when you go to Amazon on a mobile device, it takes you to their trimmed-down mobile site. Which is a good thing.

Why would you want to load the entire amazon.com site- the one you get on your PC or Mac desktop machine- on a mobile device?


No, I mean Amazon Instant Video. The android app for watching Amazon VOD natively is restricted to the Kindle Fire. The only way to watch is with a flash player on Amazon.

kingoomieiii: No, they're hiding it on the Play store from devices it isn't already on. You can still side-load it, it just might not work very well.


And they aren't certifying any devices from 4.1 and beyond (apparently) so it won't come pre-loaded.
