What’s in The News – inThirty 119

Chaim decided for this week, he would do something different. He chose 7 random news stories, and for once he cared about their opinion. To get the female perspective we invited Kelly Guimont to join us.

Here are the stories:

inThirty 82 – Et tu, iOS?

iosvsandroid

 Justin has a problem.  He is “Android curious”. He is intrigued by all the interesting features Android has to offer, but loves the stability and quality of his iPhone. Sure, he jailbreaks, but still longs for more customization. It doesn’t help that he is entrenched in the Google ecosystem. Can Harry convince him to stay, or will Chaim, the once-and-former iPhone user convince him it’s time to make the leap?
