- Honestly, your arguments are so stupid and misinformed, I don't really need to respond. I'll let everyone else tear you a new one. :)May 5, 2012
- the fact that you responded twice to ONE reply from me is hilarious. Your loyalty to "expose" Apple is certainly entertaining.
And that is mainly because of several inconsistencies. You mentioned that you can log into any computer in the world and access all your data. This is false for the simple fact that not every computer in the world can meet the minimum requirements of google music.
Even if it's exaggeration on your part to prove it's more compatible than iCloud, it's still a very false statement.
I also find it ironic for you to claim to be a Motorola fan, considering that they made Apple's CPU's for over a decade.
Shouldn't you also be an Apple fan, or do you choose to conveniently ignore that piece of Motorola's track record?May 5, 2012
- Okay, let me clarify for the idiot in the room. I can log in and listen to music on every computer purchased within the last twelve years that has an Internet connection, without having to download my music onto their computers first. Is that clear enough for you? It's still far better than iCloud in that regard, and you didn't mention that, because you know I'm right.
I'm also fond of Samsung, and we know Apple uses all their parts and claim them as their own too. I fail to see your point. We already know Apple can't build anything itself and all the innovations it brags about are actually cool new Samsung parts. Motorola's record, is selling parts to a company that wanted to order them. Samsung's record, is similar. More ironic would be the fact that Apple is trying to sue the pants off the companies that it can't make iPhones without. They're literally biting the hands that fed them. Apple is nothing without the real innovators in companies like Motorola and Samsung.May 5, 2012
- There's no need to clarify, and no need for name-calling of "idiots" unless you want a childish debate, and in that case you can count me out.
I was being completely literal regarding the google music issue because it IS a literal issue (what something can do vs something that cannot). You clearly exaggerated to add to a debate in which it clearly isn't needed.
I can log in and listen to music on any computer purchased within the last twelve years (be it Windows or OSX) that has an internet connection, and also do so without having to download music first. ITunes Match and iCloud are an extension of Home Sharing (again, a feature used with Macs and IOS devices long before google's cloud services were public) and do not require downloading of anything. You can stream from any device with iCloud enabled, and it's literally three steps (run iTunes, go to iCloud control panel, turn on iCloud).
Why you assume this isn't possible is beyond me, because I've been doing this for years with Home Sharing and built-in VNC, and iCloud only expands upon those ideas.
And no, there's nothing "easier" about google play. It's free by default, but has 5,000 less songs that can be stored in the cloud, and it doesn't give you free songs for every "legit" song you've already ripped before. Honestly both Google Play and iTunes Match pale in comparison to Amazon Cloud Player since it has parity with ALL OS's and streams them all just the same with 5GB.
And google drive simply cannot compare to the massive size iCloud provides free access to with regards to iLife files. Music, Movies, Documents, email and contacts have ZERO impact on your 5GB limit. One movie on Drive will easily kill your cloud service with Google. Google play does nothing to match what you already have when it comes to movie files- they must be rented or purchased from the Play store. If you create a movie file on your PC or Mac, there is no automatic way to sync it with Google Play or Drive if it's over 5GB.
And that's not to mention the privacy issues most Google products are plagued with. Google has full rights to EVERYTHING on Google Drive, whereas SkyDrive, Dropbox, and iCloud have taken measures to tell that is not the case on their services.
Every OS and service have their faults. Knowing that and still seeing the advantages that are there makes the difference. There are advantages to Drive (free), and there are advantages to iCloud (almost nothing counts against your 5GB).
To me (and a lot of people out there considering userbase), IOS is just simpler. Syncing whether wirelessly or tethered requires very few options to play with, and most of it is done automatically. The two reasons I still own an Android phone (using T-Mobile, and Swype is awesome) are starting to become less and less important as features for IOS increase.
So feel free to pick apart every comment here while not fact-checking your own. Android vs Apple is not a war that can be won by the likes of you.May 7, 2012
- I can't even begin to pick apart yours, because yours is so misinformed. It's like you've never used a non-Apple service in your life.May 16, 2012
