    Default Things I Like About Google over Apple

    Hello this will be a small little rant about what I like while using Android, over Apple.

    The main thing I like while using Google's android OS as my main driver is how free everything is. An example is iCloud versus similar cloud based offerings from Google. I cloud you have to pay for and google which offers the same services and can be synced across the same devices is free. Now when we get into hardware and phone pricing well, ill pay for apple over google,but as far as services go I would choose Google. And that's the end of my rant lol.

    I like being able to edit all of my documents in my dropbox account. I can only view them from my iPod Touch.
    I can also download apps to my Android's memory. The dropbox app for the iPhone does not allow those features. I do not have an iCloud account, but I'd like to know if you can download documents from your iCloud account to your device memory? Still debating at times if I should stick with Android, or give Apple a try.

    Box is trying to get into icloud space, by offering a competing solution. It already included 50gb of free storage; and now is trying to offer an integrated package, called Box One

    What I don't like about either is that they are both tracking me. I hate that feeling of big brother watching and it feels really Orwellian.

    My wife has an iPhone and it's cool. But I haven't found it to do anything that my andriod won't to as well. I like Zedge ringtones and Stiftkey X keyboard, and you can't use them on the iphone. The photo editing is more elaborate on mine. I can make my own ringtones off my songs and she can't. The operating systems are very very similar.

    I felt the same way, when I decidedly gave my mom the iPhone I was using. It was fun using it, but I missed Android's advantages over iOS, on the whole. I've been happy, overall, since getting back, via the nexus.

    You were being tracked well before this became a popular topic. An if you're not doing anything wrong what's the problem, they're keeping a record of stuff to improve your experience. there isn't an actual person there surfing through your info to know everything they can to come and murder you.

    What if what you're doing is not wrong, but the big brother still uses it against you? What if there is a murder at a McDonald's and you happened to be there and Google/Apple knows you were there, guess who's could be a potential suspect? Just because you were there getting a large fries and a diet coke, doesn't mean you couldn't be a suspect?

    What I like about Google over Apple is:

    Widgets
    Google Apps Integration
    OTA cloud
    OTA updates

    If you already think this way then you should load up on tinfoil because satellites are in the sky. Oh, don't forget about the government either.

    Just opt out or don't use their services.

    For me, it's all about the customization. I can do more with Android, out of the box, than a jailbroken iPhone.
