The mobile world is going mad

I’m certain that pretty soon the word “mobile” is going to cover more than just mobile phones. The world is going crazy and at this very point you can clearly see signs of it. Apple and Adobe practically kicking and punching each other not forgeting that others are waiting in the sideline to throw their own punch, companies like Google and Microsoft are examples of that.

The guess the question is why? What could be making the world go in this light?

It’s about market share, who owns the enviroment. You can take Google as an example of this – Google is just a search engine, like Yahoo and like ask.com yet when people speaking about searching on the internet the expression is “I’ll GOOGLE it” Google has become an action word – a verb! That is the kind of impact that every company is looking for.

Now I’m all about technology and while I can tell you flat out that the microsoft Zune is propally better than the iPod, the truth of the matter is that most people would rather have an iPod that a Zune simply because Apple has marketed their product better and has added the wow factor.

It’s exactly the same for mobile phones, their are a large number of far better phones than the iPhone but again because of Apple’s marketing people believe that the iPhone is a better mobile – the truth can be easily seen if people would just shut up and actually look at the phones.

The new iPhone OS is coming with multitasking – to the world this means crap except if you want to listen to your music and surf the internet at the same time. Apple has a huge event to announce such things yet the Motorola Droid OS has been doing multitasking for the longest time. Not to mention every other mobile I have used – Nokia N97, N96, 6110 – the list could go on forever.

The point is technically the iPhone is a piece of crap and Apple should get their heads out their ass and stop acting like complete fools. Apple want to create a monoply, yet they fail in every regard. Adobe Flash is pretty much going to every mobile out there, yet who says no – Apple. Opera browser was lucky to get their app in the iStore based on a loophole, if the loophole was not their the amazing mobile browser would not have been allowed to compete with the iPhone safari browser.

The point is the madness is the competition every one who is anyone is competing. Apple released the iPad again to me is a piece of crap that serves no purpose, yet days later Google announces it’s working on a tablet of it’s own. Not to mention Tablet PC have been around for a while and I would much rather trust a dell or HP that an Apple.

The competition should continue and is great for the consumer because we will get the best of the best out of it.
