Recently Chicago Sun-Times technology columnist (and Macworld senior contributor) Andy Ihnatko penned a series of articles for our sister publication TechHive.com, gathered under the heading "Why I Switched From iPhone To Android." These articles generated a fair amount of controversy among Apple’s most loyal followers. While Andy did more than yeoman’s work in explaining his reasons for the switch, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to invite him to expand on those reasons. He was kind enough to spend nearly an hour speaking with me about that subject.
Tempting as it might be to dismiss Andy’s opinions out of hand, I hope you’ll take the time to listen to what he has to say, understanding that it’s one man’s opinion about how best to meet his own specific desires with regard to a mobile phone. Religion this is not.
Meanwhile, if you’re an Android user interested in making a switch in the other direction, you’ll find Matt Smith’s "How to Migrate From Android to iPhone" an enlightening read.
