    This is ridiculous.

    Compared to Android apps I can assure you iOS applications are significantly better. Outside of a few core Android apps the great majority of them are poorly implemented, and have half the value of their iOS counterparts. I recently (past month) tried to switch again. I really like Android, but I became so annoyed with the performance and usability of Android apps that I just sold my phone, and went back to my iPhone.

    One example was a game that loads instantly on iOS requires some weird additional download on start that took 5-10 minutes to download. And this happened with each update of the application. Extremely annoying...a first world problem? Yes. But annoying.

    24" and it feels uncomfortable to scroll. Seems to scroll jack a bit.

    That seems worse to me. I get mostly white space, and scrolling is worse.

    I do think that a lot of the Android hardware is fantastic. My choice would be the Motorola Z series more than Samsung's products. Motorola devices offer a clean native Android experience with only a little extra that ends up enhancing the native experience which makes the Motorola a better device (to me).

    I switch to Android occasionally, and the hardware can be as amazing as it wants to be...the software is simply subpar compared to the equivalent version on iOS. And I find nothing within Apple's hardware that limits me on an iPhone. I find that the camera is just as good, and things like force touch (3d touch? insert marketing name) are very missed on Android. Simple things add up. The only thing I'd really like to see on an iPhone is external storage capabilities (SD card?), but I don't see that coming anytime soon.

    I don't understand the hatred. Fonts like Lobster have been more annoying to me over the years than Comic Sans. I actually like Comic Neue a lot.

    I don't know about the leaving the campus portion...but it is unsettling. I keep searching for a Google email alternative, but can't find one.

    Gotta admit that this is pretty lame of them.
