Mac OS X vs Windows 7

The ultimate showdown- Mac OSX vs Windows 7
We will break down their features to get an overall winner.

Back-up- Time-machine vs Windows back-up- Windows back-up wizard takes much too long and is too boring compared to time-machine, which offers an easy to use, user-friendly interface. Winner of the first round, OS X.

Popularity- Admittedly, there are more games and apps available for Windows than for Mac. This is because Windows is more widely used, but nevertheless, Mac is catching up. Windows has this one in the bag.

App Store- Mac OS X 10.6.6 introduced the Mac App Store. The purpose of this is to help people find Mac apps and hopefully boost business for App makers. Windows does not have such a thing so there we are.

I would prefer OS X. What do you think? Vote in our poll to share your opinions.

Next time: Snow leopard vs Lion

OS wars- Android vs iOS

2 of the biggest markets in the mobile world are Google Android and Apple iOS. There are advantages and disadvantages to both and they will be listed here-

The latest iOS is 4.2.1 and the latest Android OS is 2.2 i.e. FroYo

1.Flash is on of iOS's drawbacks. This makes it extremely annoying when viewing web pages. Android on the other hand does support it.

2. Whereas iOS has video-chat features built in (FaceTime), You can only video-chat on Android through external apps, therefore the performance of these apps may be very low. This applies to book-reading and email as well (iBooks and Mail for iOS, no such thing built in for Android)

3. iTunes covers syncing for iOS, and its speed and user-friendliness beats Android fair and square.

4. Apps- There are over 200,000 apps for iOS, but only 50,000 for Android.


Personally, i'd go for iOS. What would you pick, vote in our poll. Stay tuned, because next week we have, Windows vs OSX...

Untethered Jailbreak for 4.2.1

Chronic Dev Team has just released an untethered Greenpois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1. They have incorporated an animated apple boot logo in their jailbreak as well. I have tested it myself and one of the best things about it is if your iDevice was already jailbroken, you can keep your jailbreak apps without having to redownload everything.
