Mark relates his experiences with Android.
"I will admit I tasted the medicine Google fed me and decided it was tasty. Android, not only an alternative to iOS (the operating system for iPhones), but also an open platform that would allow me, the user, to do what I want with my device, as it was my device. This was a far cry from the manner of business that Apple and the late Steve Jobs (then CEO of Apple) had devised the iPhone: Non-removable battery, closed system for applications, by and large no legal way to modify the operating system. As it stood, I wanted my device to do what I wanted, I wanted my device to be mine, so I took the plunge, and bought my first Android mobile phone - The Samsung Galaxy S Captivate."
