OMG. This ancient technology actually makes sense to me now.

I just need someone to explain how records work, and we'll be all set.

If this winds up being true, no one should ever complain about Apple's yearly refresh schedule again.

The main reason I'm optimistic about the future of iOS: Forstall is out, Jony Ive is in.

Here's what the mobile world will look like 5 years from now. Pulls out comically oversized crystal ball.

Google will close its ecosystem, like Apple, and be the sole creator of Android-based phones. There will either be one or two -- Nexus and/or XPhone.

Apple will be forced to innovate iOS, due to the advances already made by Android and the emergence of Tizen.

And Tizen will probably be a so-so operating system that gets put on phones and sells a buttload, like Android phones have, because of sheer number of handsets and low price points.

Samsung is the only Android phone maker that's actually turning a profit. If they jump ship and go with their own OS, what happens to Android? Google has never proven itself to be adept at hardware manufacturing -- they must hope Motorola ends up being a good purchase.
