I recently read a story from an avid Android user complaining about how Google updated the Android operating system in mid-March and, in the process, broke a feature that was very important to this particular user. While many technology geeks have come to expect that things donít always work when we want them to, I understand where this user is coming fromóitís extremely frustrating when a feature that use to work no longer does. On top of it all, the problem is with a Google product. In other words, a Google-driven OS isnít working very nicely with another Google-born product. Google is aware of the problem and has assured users they are working on a solution. However, users have had to deal with this defect for about a month and a half now.
Donít get me wrong, Iím not trying to bash Google or Android. But this issue does bring up a good point: Sometimes, youíre better off sticking with the tried and true. Although Windows Mobile or the Palm OS may not be the prettiest mobile operating systems, they generally work quite well with applications from the same manufacturer.
