Weekend reading for January 14—15

Good this week:

  1. Enter, Prise. On Apple’s role in the corporate.
  2. Why I Hate Android. MG Siegler on how Android’s being “open” turns out to benefit carriers, whereas iPhone’s being “closed” benefits customers. Also, see Ben Brooks’s comment.
  3. The Nokia Lumia 900. MG Siegler explains how to make an iPhone competitor in 5 years after its announcement.
  4. Misconceptions About iOS Multitasking. Detailed explanation for those strange people who routinely kills apps from the iPhone’s task switcher to “improve performance”. Some think it shows running apps (it does not). There’s also a video, but I didn’t watch it.
