    Goodbye Android! :(

    Well, in a few days I'm going to be saying goodbye to the android platform and move over to iOS. My Atrix is trashed and I was hoping to replace it with the NExus 5, but I will be getting an iPhone 5 instead . The whole reason is I got hired as a senior manager as a new job, and the office is getting me a new phone. They buy iPhones, and though I tried to insist on android, IT said iOS was better for all the business apps (etc). ...sigh... The plus side is I get to cancel my Bell contract and save a bunch of money that way because work is covering this one.

    SO yeah...on to the iPhone I go. I haven't played around with the iPhone 5 before, so I don't know what to expect. But I will be hitting the XDA forums on it to see whats up (though I will NOT be jailbreaking it as it is not mine).

    Anyway, 'Cheers! Thanks for all the help and the great time on the Atrix!'

    So I'm posting this from my fancy iPhone 5 with iOS 7. All I can really say is:

    "I MISS ANDROID PHONES!"

    This is way slower and harder to use than an android. And I am pretty jealous as my wife picked up a Galaxy S4 today.

    Anyway, I just thought I'd drop in and vent my frustration about missing Google!

    Hey Luke! That's a bummer. Hopefully she'll let you mess with the S4!

    Sorry to hear you are leaving!

    That shows you the ignorance of many IT professionals. If the the POTUS can use an Android phone, then the private sector can too!

    iOS isn't that bad. If I got a free iPhone 5, I would take it and use it. I can always have my Android tablet!!

    Yeah. The IT group I want the company to go with syncs with all devices because the GM likes blackberry but all his employees use android (plus there is no reason why you can't). It's just the IT guy we contract doesn't like android...bah I'll stop now!

    But yeah I can't complain as it's free...and I didn't even think of picking up a tablet! Anyway...I just wanted to say there is a huge difference...but at least iOS 7 is better than 6.

    Sucks to be stuck with something you don't really like anyhow. Hopefully you're able to get back to the fun side in the future.
