[April Fools] Apple iOS is Superior–XDA Changing Focus

ios-android-war-iphoneindiaHere at XDA-Developers, we pride ourselves on being able to eke out the absolute most performance and functionality from our mobile devices. And as Portal Administrator / Editor-in-Chief for the site, it is my duty and responsibility to ensure that this information is highlighted through our media outlets.

A month an a half ago, when the XDA Portal reached its second birthday, I took it upon myself to evaluate market standings and determine which platform(s) would have the most meaningful impact in the years to come. Through this, I came to a startling realization:

iOS is simply better than Android.

It is with great pleasure that I announce today our new (and improved) focus. Rather than wasting our time with inferior mobile OSes, we will simply concentrate on the best: Apple iOS. While other OSes have downright copied Apple, some resorting so far as to traveling back in time to the year 2000 to launch their products, we can only recognize Apple iOS as the true grandfather of everything smartphone. Furthermore, OSes like Android and Windows Phone simply lack the resources and efficiency to compete in the modern mobile market. HP’s webOS and Nokia’s Symbian showed promise, but even they are simply no match for the Apple juggernaut.

Now rather than talking about our past mistakes, let me present to you our new websites:

Thank you for your support and for making this transition a success. I look forward to a great year with iOS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK, you didn’t REALLY think that we’d give up Android and WP7 in favor of iOS did you? And you didn’t honestly believe that Google was hosting a second week of I/O or that we were shutting down our marketplace. And most of all, I really, really hope you didn’t step on your Gorilla Glass-laden tablet or smartphone and use it as a scale.

Happy April Fools Day, everyone! We hope you enjoyed our pranks. Here are some other notable April Fool’s Day Pranks seen across the web:

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...

The History of Flagships: Part III – HTC

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
