I’ve said this before but it needs saying again.
There is a lot of shitty, badly-researched “journalism” about smartphone and tablet platforms out there. I do not give a rat’s ass if you are an Android fan, an iPhone fan, or a (god forbid) Windows Mobile 6.5 fan. Do your fucking research, present the facts, and then give your opinion.
Every day, I wake up and read/listen to people who get paid to write/talk about technology and way too many stories reflect two things: they have allegiance towards Platform X, and they only did half the research.
If you’re an iOS guy trying to tear Android to shreds, and you are coming at it knowing about as much about Android as your average iOS fan does, you are likely going to make silly mistakes that will completely eliminate your credibility with Android users. If you want to be able to be taken seriously by Android users, you need to show that you know more about Android than its average user, or at least as far as the specific aspect you’re discussing is concerned. They might not agree with you, but at least they’ll be able to see how you got to that conclusion.
Do your research. If you do, you’ll often run into cases where the thesis you were running with was actually wrong, and admitting that is proof that you’re not just shilling for whoever you like best at the moment.
