      @ShazAmerica <br>When Jobs says that the gyroscope is built into <b>every</b> iPhone 4. That's great but it means that <b>every</b> application written to work with the gyroscope <b>won't</b> work with the iPhone, iPhone 3G, or iPhone 3GS. Wow, talk about a fragmented platform!!!

      Cue the double standards...

      • fragmented platforms....

        @NonZealot:

        Internet Explorer 8 <b>won't work</b> on Windows 98, Windows 95, or Windows 3.1. Wow, talk about a fragmented platform!!!

        Sorry, it's called "progress", and you'd better get used to it.

        [i]Sorry, it's called "progress", and you'd better get used to it.[/i]

        So why is it [i]progress[/i] when Apple fragments a platform but it is a [b]showstopper[/b] when Android does it?

        Cue the double standards...

      • Yup, fragmented platforms

        @NonZealot So IE 8 won't work in Windows 98? Well, Windows 98 is a 12 year old OS whereas someone might have purchased a brand new iPhone 3GS last week.
