Although it’s somewhat ironic that this article was written on Medium, this is a very good rant on obsolescence of files:
I love files. I love renaming them, moving them, sorting them, changing how they’re displayed in a folder, backing them up, uploading them to the internet, restoring them, copying them, and hey, even defragging them. As a metaphor for a way of storing a piece of information, I think they’re great.
Paul Stamatiou has been getting a lot of attention about his article “Android Is Better”. And beyond the obvious flamebait (which seems to be working quite well), he makes a couple of points that I agree with:
Most people probably use more Google services (for good or bad) than Apple services, and will find the Android experience better integrated if they tried it. Notifications on Android are a million times more useful and productive than on iOS.
