Ben Bajarin: Not Switching

I wrote last year in a column that our technology picks are simply matters of personal preference. Because someone chooses Android and another chooses the iPhone isn’t a big deal, and it’s certainly not something worth arguing about. The fact that I’m not switching to Android or any other platform isn’t a big deal.

I generally read every Ben Bajarin article I could get my hands on because he is so thoughtful and laid back in his opinions. Moltz agrees that Bajarin is one of the good ones”. Finding a person who is opinionated but not militaristic is a breath of fresh air in the current technological landscape and that is unfortunate.

In this article, Bajarin’s ability to make a logical argument against the previous discussions and redefine the conversation to that of smartphone maturity is uncanny. I consider myself a mature smartphone user and I have tried every platform I can, but in looking back on what drew me to each platform over the years, I am reminded that I came back to iOS because it just worked” every time. In other words, less worry, more productivity.

However, in Bajarin’s words: The fact that I’m not switching to Android or any other platform isn’t a big deal.” Or, at least, it shouldn’t be.
