First of all I never use Wikipedia, because that information is never verified, and anyone can put anything on there.

I have several sources, but since I'm on a business trip. I'm not able to pull them all up since my internet connection is very slow.

Here is a quote from the CEO of Nokia, Stephen Elop; "Apple and its "closed" iOS that created Android: "Apple created Android, or at least it created the conditions necessary to create Android."

In a keynote speech that Steve Jobs hosted before his death. He said that there were 5 operating systems out there. iOS, AOS, blackberry, windows, and one I can't remember. This was in a pie chart. He then went on to show another pie chart with iOS and AOS combined and said that due to Apple helping create the Droid OS that the iOS was 95% +/- the cell phone market, and apple is the leading handheld OS out there.

Yet here we have you unable to offer ANY citation ... Not exactly compelling.

I'm more than slightly skeptical of this.

I don't concede this was even stated as offered here, but if it was, it seems to me that it means that Apple's closed system inspired others to develop an open alternative, NOT that Apple had anything to do with that development.

While semantically correct as stated, the intent was as has been said above - Apple created the conditions for the need to create an alternative - hence Android. There is no Apple/Android OS.

Referenced speech details here:

Wow I guess it's true. "Can't cure ignorance." If you are that closed minded please just don't continue the discussion.

Unsubscribing to thread. Not dealing with such closed minded people.

Take care.

Sorry to see this. I apologize for offending you.

I simply see zero evidence. PLEASE provide something.

This is incorrect and remains so even if the original poster has unsubscribed. May be a misunderstanding or erroneous source, but the above statement is not correct.
