Apple vs. Android

            This past week Apple hosted an event that revealed many improvements to products they had been developing recently such as the new iPhone 6s and the iPad Pro. They also released new products such as the as the Apple Pencil, a new keyboard for the iPad, as well as completely revamping the apple TV, saying that it is the future of television watching. Similarly to every other year, I am not as excited for this release of Apple products as I am for similar android products. This is because every year, there are so many similar things at the event.Apple generally has a positive connotation of having the best quality, design, and especially mind blowing people with new products or features. Looking back on their latest features and products, Apple has used old technology and made it sound more appealing to the general public like us. Adding many similar products to the google products already existing such as the new keyboard they released last week. The keyboard strangely looks the same as the keyboard of Microsoft’s Surface Pro with very similar design features. The magnet and slim keys are basically the same as the Surface's keys. 
  On the contrary, I enjoy the Android release events much more than Apple ones. This is because of the new products that they release is technology we haven’t seen yet or something drastically different from last year’s product. Take Motorola for example, their newest phone, The Moto X is very different than last year’s product. The specs are completely redone and the design is also completely different than the older one. Android also comes out with new products faster. Apple comes out with new products in their series in at least 1 year maybe even more. The iPod touch series took three years to update it, with changing just the internals and changing nothing new on the outside.

  1. I agree about how Apple continues to barely change their products and they are becoming more similar to Android ones. It makes me wonder how far they will be able to get if they are actually not coming up with new innovative ideas by themselves.

  2. I agree with your opinion on Apple and how people are amazed with products that have already been introduced to the world. This article definitely changes my perspective on how innovative Apple is compared to Android.

  3. Personally, I love Apple. Apple has created a brand name around itself that android has failed to match. What Apple lacks in innovation it makes up with in marketing and an established reputation.

  5. Even though your argument about how Android is more original and perhaps better has good points, I am still going to go with Apple because their products easily sync together, and it is more simple for me to get another Apple product.

  6. I agree with your points on Apple and their lack of innovation, especially since Steve Jobs died. Also, they do act as if they have technology unique to their products, like NFC. 3D touch is unique to Apple, but it is more of a marketing gimmick than useful. While Android continues to one-up Apple at lower costs, Apple is much more user-friendly and will be more preferred than Android.
