    I think IOS offers a superior gaming experience to Android.

    This is due to the selection and quality of the games rather than technical limitations or hardware form factor. But the iPhone 5 has a world-class GPU.

    Probably but it is pretty amusing how Google is putting apps out that are very good on the iPhone. I really enjoy different aspects of both devices and think that both platforms are causing innovation to continue which is a good thing for us. We could argue IOS vs Android forever but the truth is that both are getting better. I'm sitting here hoping the jailbreak is released today so I can make my iPhone more usable.
    Except Apple hasn't done any innovation, they take features from everyone else, change it a bit and then pretend they invented it. And then they patent it and sue anyone else that tries to use it after them if they can.

    That's just not true. Apple has done quite a bit as well as Google. The opposite side of such a blanket statement would be that Android was stolen from Apple. Again, nothing but feeding the fire of fanboy vs fanboy. Both have their virtues and sins as well.

    Except as you can see Android has a lot of new things about it that iOS still doesn't have so it's not really the same thing. Plus I never said Android was perfect, no OS ever will be.

    I remember my HTC g1 had universal search, the ability to click a phone number to send it right to dialer, click an address to go to map, etc. All the stuff you can't do now :/

    And android is perfect for some, those who can code for Linux and make their phone into what they want.

    Perfect in terms of what certain people are looking for but perfect as in no flaws will never be attained by any tech IMO.

    I used to consider Android:iOS like GameCube:PS2 when it comes to games. The former has a few very good games. The latter has many, many good games.

    The Android gaming environment is improving a bit since there's more growth, but it concerns me that developers are disheartened by the rampant piracy in the platform.

    And what that boils down to is... unfortunately... the whole open source thing. It's so easy to snag a apk and put it online, however I pay for my stuff, why shouldn't everyone else?

    An apk file doesn't guarantee that you can pirate the app. There is authentication on most apps.

    Most app devs still don't use authentication, it's really strange.

    Agreed. But at least piracy hasn't kept the Play Store from matching the App Store.

    Press the volume down button until it goes into vibrate mode, then press the button again to go into silent mode.
    You can also press and hold the power button, then select Mute, Vibrate, or Sound.

    How do you do it if the phone is in your pocket, looks to me like the screen as to be on to do any of these. I'm kind of used to just reaching in my pocket on the iphone and just sliding the switch to silent.

    Press the volume down button until it goes into vibrate mode, then press the button again to go into silent mode.

    so unlock the screen, slide to open the screen, then hold the volume rocker? Are there any other workarounds or quicker ways to do it, someone might think I was playing pocket pool making all those moves inside my pocket.

    Then they shouldn't complain. Its like any program. If they don't use the proper protection then they can only blame themselves.

    Just press power key or home key. No need to unlock screen. Then press and hold power key 1 sec and there is options to mute vibrate or sounds on.

    Don't think there's an easier way than the switch on the side of the iPhone.
    There are some ways using 3rd party apps. For example...
    I rarely change the different modes manually on my phone during the work week. I use an app called MyProfiles, and I set up custom profiles that change at certain times of the day based on times I set. For instance, when driving to work I have it automatically switch to sound mode. Around the time I get to work I have it go to vibrate mode. Around the time I get home I have it set to switch to sound mode and turn wifi on. There are numerous profiles you can create. You can have it change profiles based on cell tower location, but I rarely use that option.

    No. It comes down to who can sue whom first. And THAT is something Apple is very good at.
