By now, just about everyone in America knows that the iPhone 5 was officially unveiled yesterday. It was marketed as a watershed event in history, a line drawn in the sand about the #TeamiPhone versus #TeamAndroid culture wars. Guess what? It’s not NEARLY that serious!
I love new technology, even if I don’t always fully understand it. But for people to act like being part of one camp over the other is a life changer? Really people, really?
In full disclosure, I own an Android. I’m quite happy with it. I’m also anti Apple everything. No, seriously. I never even owned an iPod.
The reason though, is as simple as it comes: personal preference. Also, I have a contrarian personality. Many people love Apple products. It’s my nature to simply be against it for that reason. That’s what is really driving the iPhone/Android debate though, personal preference. But here’s another guess what moment. Everybody is entitled to theirs. Granted, some of the back and forth is good natured fun, but the stuff that’s not is just crazy.
It’s time we let those who want to own an iPhone do so, with no judgment. Those of us who aren’t sheep (I just engaged in the debate) should be free to enjoy our Android devices on the same accord. It’s just a phone anyway…right?
So folks, what set you claim? Why?
