The HTC One Google Edition? A Sense-less plan, if you ask me | ZDNet

The issue is rarely discussed in posts and blogs:  Control.

When you buy Apple, you relinquish all control over the device.  Obviously this has advantages and disadvantages for the consumer/user.  But having it both ways is another matter.  And jail-breaking an iOS device isn’t exactly the best solution for a variety of reasons too numerous for this post.

But the HTC One Google Edition is a great example of an Android manufacturer moving toward the iOS/Apple feature and OS control.  Kindle was the other a couple of years ago.  (And after rooting my Android, I was much happier – especially because it gave me the best of both worlds)

Does any of this really matter?  Probably not unless you can’t stand the idea of losing control!
