The Deadberry, oops, sorry about that – I meant Blackberry 10 OS on full display. Will it save them? Is being a day late and a dollar short a good thing? If so, then sure.
When is big business going to realize that gimmicks designed to dupe the public always, always, backfire? Why not build a rock solid, beautiful OS that’s easy to use, easy to develop for and create a set of apps in-house bundled on your phone that function and sync exactly how your average user wants them to? Oh, I guess that just makes too much sense? Apple already did that, so let’s just f’ around with facial recognition on our camera app instead – that’ll move product.
Oh and don’t forget, let’s try to use the cheapest shit we can find to build our phones too, and then overprice them at launch to gouge the morons. We’ll lower the price later on and laugh.
You know what I want, a full featured service that allows me access to my ‘phone enabled’ devices. My work PC, my Mac at home – at the touch of a button – even if it’s based on VNC, adapt it – make it better, easy – interpret and give me an easy to use interface, we have the technology.
Build a home automation system that’s easy, built in. Bundle plugs with the phone, the plugs recognize devices plugged in – can send on or off signal. Connect my world, give me full featured everything! Allow me to use whatever email service I want! Make it easy, clean the interface, amaze me!
But no, they won’t do that – because, really, it’s not about making the world a better place or making better software, it’s about gimmicks, it’s about pushing product, it’s about making money today – not tomorrow.
