Khoi Vinh:

I also discovered something interesting about Google’s much vaunted strength in services: sometimes it’s no better than Apple’s.

I love this comment so much because I think it so succinctly shines a light on something that drives me nuts: often the people complaining about Apple stuff has no real basis for comparison. Sure they read reviews and hear anecdotes, but very rarely do these people try to live on the other non-Apple things.

Like the group bullshitting that they are going to switch to the Surface Studio — without even realizing that that means Windows 10, and that means moving to a mobile processor. No, they just saw something shiny and were pissed Apple didn’t do that.

So Vinh’s post serves as a nice reminder to maybe check out the competition before you threaten to move to the competition.
