The Apple Lock-in

Robert Scoble writes about his experience moving over to Android and what he’s missing on iOS and Apple in general,

But since I have been an Apple fanboy for so long I have Apple TV’s everywhere and even our video switcher has AirPlay built in (which lets me push video from my phone onto my TV). I really miss this, and I’ve already reached for my iPad a couple of times because of this.

There are many things I like about Android but I haven’t used an Android device as my main device since early last summer because of iMessage and AirPlay. In particular, iMessage has also been integrated into our workflow at savvy apps, which allows people to get a hold of me even when I’m not at my desk via my iPhone. iMessage is now the singular reason I no longer switch back and forth between other handsets.
