I don't own an iphone, so I was hoping Icyculyr or someone could comment on if there is a better way of doing such tasks on the iDevices

Wow. At school, I happened to use Google Galaxy Nexus phone (Android 4, fo project), HTC Wildfire S (Android 2.3.5, my personal phone), and my roommate's iPhone 4S.

To be strict, I have no problems whatsoever with the devices/smartphones I use accordingly. My roommate however, it's obsessed with iPhone 4S, and loves to mock me over HTC Wildfire S. The video depicted the use of Galaxy Nexus, which I haven't had the chance to borrow it outside of my campus. Even the new features in Android 4 is more like AWESOME, DUDE feeling I get when I've been using my HTC Wildfire S for a year. I can imagine my roommate mock over me after watching the first video, and probably the second video, because what these videos are showing, are the Android 4 demostrations.

As for the second video, BETTER! It uses an older Samsung smartphone with a version nearly close to my HTC phone, but why compare it to an iPad 2? If it's about comparing the embedded OS, then I really have no comment.

Maybe I should let my roommate review these videos once he has the time. It's even incredible that the ratings are 95% positive/approved for these two videos.

It's not fair, actually. Even though I'm an Android user, I felt the need that these videos need to be consistent with the OS version they are displaying. The second video is not applicable, as it merely demos an older version of Android 2, and gets back to Android 4.

Then again, I think that the iOS has charisma, the Android has usability. If you are the person who cherishes charisma, or social relations, (like in business, work, making romantic relations, etc.), use iPhone 4S or iPad 2. If you are a power user, someone who prefers usage over looks, personalizations, customizable features, etc., use Android. If you get Android 4, that's great, awesome to the top. If you're still using Android 2.X version, it's not like the end of the world for you, you know? I'm okay with whatever you use.

Also, I should mention that my roommate had already jailbroken his iPhone 4S. So, it may implies that stock iOS 5 for iPhone/iPad2 is generally bad. Also, the second video made a good point in replacing batteries. Why people are getting lazy with replacing batteries, is a question that should be asked in the video... for clarity.

that's because the source is a poster from XDA, and personally I felt like the first video was OK as well.. i mean comparing the number of people running ICS to the number of people who use an iphone4s is a relatively fair comparison.. comparing a 2-year old android phone would be more appropriate vs a iphone 3/3gs or so.. but w/e

just as a reference, I am running ICS on a HTC g2 (2 year old phone, new OS)

I watched the first video, and I watched a third of the second video. He's got some valid points, but I think he over does it a bit... for example in the first video when he's talking about the back button, and whilst it's a great thing, it doesn't automatically make iOS difficult to use which is what he was making it out to be -- iOS is probably the most uniform, most natural UI around right now, even across any and all versions of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

And he's wrong about multi-tasking on iOS, it's the developers fault if their app doesn't run in the background, as the API for such functionality does exist.

I'm looking forward to iOS 6 though... iOS 5 was good but kind of a tock, not a tick.

If you are talking about most uniform mobile ui OS you have to look at W7P's UI

I've not used one thoroughly, but I do like the look of it. However iOS is uniform across the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and at its core, even across all versions of the OS.

    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.

    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!

    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
