greek grumblings

I bought an Android phone in January. I did not like it. At least it was cheap. (See here; defns 1, 3, and 5 are all relevant).

How cheap? It couldn’t even display polytonic Greek! Madness, I know.

This was a not insignificant factor in my decision to get a new iPhone (I lived with the same phone from 2009 through 2013 and now I’ve had two new ones in 2014) only a few months later.

Also at play was the all around Windowsiness of Android.

On the other hand: holy crap has iOS improved. It’s far more useful as a platform than it was when my first iPhone was new. And the current aesthetic is a good one.
