Android and Apple: Is Innovation, Idiot

Yesterday my colleague Yago spoke to us that Google had already very advanced project Majel, the equivalent for Android of Siri, the wizard that leads the innovations of the iPhone 4S. It is the perfect news for Apple fans come to tell “ hale, anything copied Android ”. And do not lack them reason, but also lead them all.

I have to confess that the news I don’t like, but I am not surprised. It makes it seem that Google developed Android depending on what do Apple, which turns out to be a false generalization. It could “ defender ” to Google (which is not my intention) stating that Apple has also copied things of Android, but would be falling into the same mistake that both critical to the politicians of this country: the “ puestumas – same & #8221;.

In fact, theirs would be making something which is, surely, a novelty in a publication dedicated to Android: defending Apple. Oops, what I said. I matizaré: I’m going to Apple to recognize their merit, to distinguish it from the merits of Google. I hope that so you can appreciate is that all these movements ultimately have end users benefiting.

What makes Apple well: the example of Siri

When he left Siri heard real atrocities. As that Apple had invented an artificial intelligence controlling the phone using voice. Let’s see, let’s, Apple did not invent anything like that: He has invented the voice recognition, nor he has invented artificial intelligence, or attendees to control mobile. There is prior art. And yet, Siri seems something new.

This is a great merit that has Apple: join several technologies in a way that is an innovative product that is unlike anything in the market. That is clear, this is a major and enviable merit, but is not to invent, innovate.

Before Siri was Eliza, who was able to interact with the user, but using the keyboard. There was the voice recognition, more or less accurately. There were attendees who allowed easier device management. Apple has been able to see (that is not little) that the technology had reached a point where It was possible to unite those concepts in one and that the user experience was satisfactory.

ES the same case as the iPhone and iPad. Already had touch screens, and smart mobile with multiple applications. There were even tablets with touch screens, surprisingly with a rectangular shape. But when they released they did not provide a satisfactory experience, because the technology did not offer what was missing: non-diatribes.

But that is not to invent

In essence, Google does the same as Apple. All make them. Taken from here and there products that exist and improve them. He did it with your browser, it did with GMail, did with the late Reader. Yes, he makes many mistakes, but when your product is not physical it is much easier to jump into the adventure and if it does not turn it off. If you sell safe physical products that your strategy would be different.

When Apple says that Android is one copy of iOS can not reason missing, but iOS does drink from operating systems that precede it. And this is nothing wrong: in fact, would be idiots not take advantage of all the accumulated know-how. Android has its own technologies, and will have taken some aspects of iOS, and sure of other systems.

It is impossible to IOS pass not the same (and there are the notification bar as an example), but insist that this is not something negative. Now iOS users enjoy functionality that is very comfortable, enriching the user experience. Ah, that bar is not an invention of Android, that concept already existed previously, so say “ copy iOS to Android ” is equally fallacious.

In r & d, the tiny innovation is something

I don’t want to finish without amending it flat to Google. They do not convince me the route by which seems to move Android. Yes, the boom of this platform is brutal, and we are just beginning to glimpse its enormous variety of applications. See no evil that devote efforts to get their own “ Eliza combined with voice recognition and Assistant ”, but one cannot be there if you want to remove the drunkard.

To move this forward, to cover mouths, Android needs more own innovation. But we must remember that in r & d, innovation will lowercase. To create something new, where you really have to go is to the research and development, points in that Google lately either is making merit.

For something that innovates the fumble, to make matters worse: the recognition of faces to unlock the terminal. We know very well that biometrics-based security mechanisms are not reliable by definition … not be them did nothing better on which to devote efforts?

Because resources it will not be. However, even the most outstanding innovation projects, such as [email protected], Google appears to announce them and then not give them the necessary support. On the example, we talk about this project in May and we have known nothing more topic, when to make it really work you would have to have been directly announced agreements with manufacturers, and launching the same day to sell the devices ready for immediate installation and enjoy.

Google does not have to move, have to create a new tab

I like the difference in user experience that Android offers. I already said that the fragmentation is a symptom of variety, more than a problem.

Terminals with pantallacos, tiny, low-cost, physical keyboard, modular, resistant … is not wonderful to be able to choose between options beyond black and white, of more or less internal memory?

It seems to me that Google develop an application that supplement the functionality of Siri, to stop anyone from choosing between the various flavors of Android for this reason. This is a useful feature, as so many others, and users should have the option of using it. But it is high time not only of move, but Modeling a new tab. The bad thing is that this is easy to say, but doing so is at the height of a few visionaries.
