Platforms & Ecosystems

Following Google’s new guide for switching to Android will put you firmly in the company’s grip.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as Google has strong cloud services for managing your mail, photos, contacts, and music. Yet in contrast with Apple’s recently published tutorial for migrating to the iPhone, Google’s strategy is to keep you using its services even if you do move back to the iPhone one day. Its services are also clearly better at migration and present on both platforms, making switching painless.
Wow, Google locks you into it’s ecosystem like Apple.
I’m shocked!
It seems Google and Apple want seamless experiences across all their services on their hardware.
Sounds horrible and illogical.
