A friend of mine posted a question on facebook about backing up his Mac, asking what would happen if he decided to switch to Windows later. Instead of answering his question, I picked up on the bit about photos and failed to respond to his question with the following bit:
For example, here is a movie made out of one of the breakfasts we had in London a few weeks ago.
And here is the “story” Google’s bots made of our whole trip to London.
So, yeah, Google is a multi-billion dollar corporation, but so are Apple and Microsoft. The difference is that Google’s doesn’t care if you are on a Mac or a PC.
But they would prefer you to use an Android phone, I’m sure, instead of an iPhone. Even there, you have more options because, like Microsoft, Google isn’t focused on controlling the delivery of their software to the same degree that Apple is.
This means you can have a crappy Android device, just the same way you can have a crappy PC. So, yes, there is a higher chance you will be dissatisfied, but it also means that you are less limited than you are on an IOS device and that, as a result, more people will be able to contribute to providing you with a better experience via software or cloud services because Google (like Microsoft on Windows) doesn’t exert the same control over the Android ecosystem that Apple does on the IOS ecosystem.
