Many already know that the iPhone and I have not been dating, and I don\'t have a love affair as many of my colleagues do with it. However, the reason is not because I hadn't tried it to see if I would like it because I had. It was sent to me in the early days by mistake when I purchased a different product. I was not impressed and I had issues with the closed platform it offered. I am a open platform fan.
The iPhone has only about 11million users out of 250 and has already begun to dictate what those users will get access to or what services will be available. Although, I would prefer limited regs it is these incidents that really make me re-think it.
Tech needs openness for innovation but if the choice is to control the users (the social side of tech) then they should re-think why they are building it in the first place. Ultimately, who are you building it for? The users or the platform?
