LGG3 keyboard update: don't install

I had an update that came up on Update Centre. It was an update for the LG keyboard. It was the worse update yet. The dictionaries of 2 languages were mixed together. The typing experience on Google apps was a waste of time when words did not correct.
It irritated me everyday. Today I went into the apps manager and uninstalled the update. Back to a smooth error free environment.
At least updates can be uninstalled. Newer is not always better.

IPhone update woes

It seems the people’s temper is rising. The IOS 8 system meant to replace IOS7 system is nothing short of a disaster. My daughter updated to IOS 8 to have battery drain and glitches with WiFi. It was updated to 8.0.2 and lost all data!!! She had tonnes of ITunes music and photos. All lost!!!

Lost not all as some was in Icloud. But imagine this kind of frustration thousands of times over. Apple is fast losing ground to Android and Windows phone. And unless it can push a myriad of fixes in 8.1 the defection rate will rise.

I think the push to release Ios8 along with the new IPhone 6 moniker has pushed a unpolished system too soon.

One thing we know,heads will roll at Apple and the confusion will disappear as Apple remembers it's user base being essential to it's supremacy. The consumer confidence has taken a blow...once that goes and stocks lose value then we could have another BlackBerry scenario.

Android L

The speculation is rising because it seems obvious that Android L is about to be released. Already a test ROM has been made for the Galaxy S5 to run Touchwiz with L. It was a buggy experience. This means that Samsung will have to make a new version of Touchwiz. However this means that first,Android L is almost to be released and second it seems that Samsung will update very quickly as there will be a demand for a faster and flatter experience.
Android L will do away with the Dalvick cache in favour of ART runtime. For some indication it seems that Android L phones to be launched next year will need more internal memory to adequately store apps as space will be needed to optimize apps for the runtime.
In Kit Kat the runtime is experiential and as such is quite reliable but not always. We anticipate in the runtime some polished effects.
The other advantage of the quick proliferation of Android L is the new “Material interface ” which will unify a design across the Google experience.
So as the speculation continues let us guess that by at least November 1st Android L be at least presented in it's entirety.
Until then we must hang in there with a half experience of Kit Kat.
