How people are commenting on Windows 10:
"Tiles are still there. No deal"
"They backed down because of the old people who can't accept #Metro is the new thing"
"It's the same as XP!!!!!" (?!?!)
So apparently, Windows 7 is "same as Vista", Windows 8 is "too different", and now Windows 10 is "same as XP".

When Google forces you to sign in to Android, it's ok. When Microsoft asks (not forces) you to sign in to Windows, it's not ok.

When Google released #Windows exploits, people are happy. When Google released Apple exploits, people are mad.

Google Voice Search and Apple Siri are cool, but when Microsoft makes #Cortana , "Microsoft is always listening to their customers".

Conclusion: #Microsoft always loses.

After a year I still haven’t forgotten my Nexus One. Flashed 4.3 on it today. It is slow, but very much usable after overclocking.

Sad there is still nothing coming close to it after 3 years. (I might change my opinion if Nokia made an Android phone which is impossible thanks to Stephen Elop.)

Finally, a post about how Android versions REALLY work. In this example, almost 25% of people buying paid app is running 5.0 on their phones... in contrast to <0.1% of overall adoption in Google's graph.
In short: people who buy apps tend to be on latest versions.

I see a lot of confusion, and to be honest ridicule, from iOS Developers when it comes to new Android versions. In iOS when Apple release v8, all the supported devices get it on day 1. In most case...

The more I use 5.0 #Lollipop the more I hate it.

Too white, too much unused wasted screen estate (this is the number 1 worst thing to me), stupid volume control, task switcher, dumbing down of the OS (well I understand, but still...), lockscreen design (I don't get this at all - I started using Android since 2010 and I almost couldn't unlock my phone for the first time)
Lollipop feels rushed. The only good (or maybe not) thing is the more mature (or uselessly flatter, whiter with lower information density) look of the OS. It can even be considered worse update than #ICS.

I didn't include #Xposed here, since I think we are relying too much on the framework, which is a bad thing. See, without Xposed, the phone almost feels broken. Nothing lasts forever, so we've got to think of alternatives.

Apple: "We don't focus on specs. Specs don't matter." ... "Except when they can serve as good marketing points for our products. Then we'll talk about them till your ears bleed."

As a Chinese let me say that the food is perfect. Even my parents can't stop praising the chef. Not to mention that they are quite cheap.

The location is very good, but it can be busy sometimes. I was also treated badly by one of the cashiers today, which I hope is not because of my ethnicity!
