Apple greed put me off
After 10 years with iPhone I finally moved to Android with a Samsung S10. Lovely device. Apple new phones had no touch id, were too expensive and their greed was the final deciding factor.

As long as IBM improves on the RedHat Linux offering it will good for both companies. If IBM has any ambitions to offer good prospects for Redhat Linux in the desktop world it could start with getting Adobe to develop it's suite of software for Linux. That will sway a lot of people away from Microsoft.
Last month I took advantage of Apple's battery upgrade for my 6s plus. This was showing as 83% capacity and the new battery boosted standby to 2 days. But the reason why I did that was because the new iPhones have taken away the audio jack and touch id. So why bother upgrading for in my opinion a poorer device. in
I have been on iOS since 2009 and would like to move to Android but the only think stopping me is the app data which you lose. Android will have the same apps but all the game data is lost and there is no easy way to transfer it. Losing all the hard won coins and other treasures keeps me back on iOS.
What benefit is a smart meter? I have said no and still say no. I am not convinced it is of any measurable benefit to the consumer. To spend £11bn, at no cost to the consumer suggests it is of more benefit to the providers of our energy in the homes. It enables them to regulate, control, ration remotely and we have all seen the press articles warning of looming energy shortfalls with demand for electricity outstripping supply within a decade. Any reasonable person would say no to allowing a third party cut off or reduce power to your home remotely.
Not surprised, we are paying an arm and leg for the annual subscription license.
The biggest advantage for us is the ZFS file system. This is not rock solid on linux, so I would like to see if Oracle are going to transfer their technology code to Linux kernel or whether we should be looking at freebsd.
I only use CD drive for creating music CD's from my playlist, however more and more cars are now going usb or iphone way so my CD/DVD RW will disappear from my computer soon. However I disagree with blu-ray.
I use it extensively for content authoring. Let's face it TV's need a blu-ray player & we are not going to be downloading 25GB or 50GB anytime soon. I see a future for blu-ray well into next 10 years.
