Android vs. iPhone
 
Which one do you think would be most like Star Trek?

IPhone = Federation: It has a lot of power and functionality, is very popular, but you are restricted to doing things in a proprietary format and you don't really own the media you put on it.

Android = KDF: Not as user friendly, but for those who know what they are doing it offers more freedom and has more room for customization, hacks and tweaks. For some reason I couldn't see Apple doing well in the Klingon Empire with their "Why innovate when you can litigate policy". The legendary battles of Apple versus Samsung/Google aren't too dissimilar to Federation vs KDF - except the Klingons would have killed the lawyers long ago.

Android. Because Data wasn't an iPhone.

Negative.


IPhone = TOS

Android = TNG

So much more customization on android. And 90% of the market is free. Which is parallel with the statement that in the future we have done away with money and work to better ourselves.
