So if you are given a choice between beating the drum (and your head against a wall) to SOMEDAY POSSIBLY get what you want (or "need"); and going a different direction to get something that works as you want it TODAY, why is "get the one that works for you and meets your needs" the wrong answer?
You already know the answer. We are all IOS device fanatics here. We just want to voice how it can be improved. The funny part is if no one commented the threads you don't agree with would go cold. Instead the are kept alive by the defenders of the apple way - ignoring that apple evolves, changes, updates, adds etc etc. Discussions like these are healthy not a waste of time. If you think they are, just let them go cold. It would certainly be a lot more friendly and democratic.
