The word "Fragmentation" is being abused lately. It has essentially been coined as an anti-android scheme by the same folks that brought the phrase "It just works." Much of this has been sheeple marketed into the brain cells of people.

The common mistake that people make with Android coming from ios, is that they try to treat it the same way as an Apple device. They are so vast in differences that you can't just jump into the change. And what do most people hate the most? Change. Then they wonder Android doesn't seem to live to their expectations. However, in contrast, I have colleagues that have owned every iteration of the iphone since its debut and very recently switched to Androld. While admitting a slight learning curve that brought some frustration, these same people have fallen quite in love with Android after acclimating themselves with the vast customization Android has to offer. Once set up, there is nothing you can't do with a one touch command. Everything is essentially one step away. They actually find it answers on command and provides a greater experience more than "they heard" it did.

When I left Apple's clutches in '92, it took me 3-4 months to get used to Microsoft. It is definitely a different orientation. Once learned, however, I would never return to the iron grip. I simply could not give up the freedom I gained by switching.

To each his own. But, not understanding something is the greatest fault of the human mind's adaptation process. This the ultimate form of fragmentation.
