Comment Re:Trump scare maybe (Score 1) 217

No, it's more like Intel had decided to spend $7 billion on the fab for business reasons not involving Trump (most likely long before Trump became president, and possibly even before the election) so they decided that, hey -- we should announce it now while we are meeting with Trump so he will be more supportive of us and not use Twitter to tank our stocks!

You might have a point in that iOS is consistently unusable. An OS that uses secret gestures and other secret, vague methods of performing actions just does not lead to something you can actually use. Yes, UIs on Android from different vendors look different, but at least you can figure out how to accomplish when you want to do. Also, this is true of every other OS that isn't locked to hardware from 1 manufacturer such as Linux (which can be used with a myriad of "desktop" interfaces) and even Windows and OS/X to some degree (which can be "extended" with 3rd party applications).

It's not just you. I also have the same issues attempting to figure out how to do stuff using iOS even though I have never had issues with Android, Windows (any version), linux, KDE, Gnome, DOS, Solaris, VMS, CMS, TSO, DOS, etc.. Although, I didn't like MacOS or OS/X either, mainly because of single button mice and really expensive hardware that I can't build myself.

Most iOS operation can only be perform using secret gestures or touching the secret location on the screen in some exact way. Of course, these secret things are not documented anywhere so if you don't know what they are you are just SOL. It's also very ugly and the most intuitive interface I have ever seen in the last 40 years. It was a lot easier to figure out how to do thing using Windows, DOS (PC and Mainframe), unix or just about any other non apple OS than is it with iOS!
