Android Is Better [Buy My New Book], Says Apple Ex-Evangelist Kawasaki

Android Is Better [Buy My New Book], Says Apple Ex-Evangelist Kawasaki

| On 12, Dec 2012

Ho, ho, ho! It’s Christmas time and erstwhile Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki has a new book out. You didn’t know that, did you? Well, now you do. Not because of the book per se, but because Kawasaki said something completely unrelated — “Android is better” — that is generating big headlines on the Android fan blogs and anyone else looking for a quick page view infusion.

Dan Lyons — yes, that Dan Lyons — has interviewed Guy Kawasaki and, although other smack was talked, the words of import are these.

“I won’t switch [back to iPhone] now, because I think Android is better,” says former Apple evangelist.

Kawasaki switched to Android some time ago because he wanted a smartphone with LTE — the iPhone just recently went LTE. Since then, Guy has become enamored of Android, which is a common enough occurrence coming or going.

Apparently, the switch wasn’t news when it actually happened or, at the very least, he didn’t try to use it as such at the time. Now, it’s news because Kawasaki is trying to sell his latest book and, quite naturally, he choose Dan Lyons to help him ho, ho, ho! it just in time Christmas…

What’s your take?

    He’s right… it is better, book or no book.

    Not that he has been for many, many years, but perhaps it’s time that Guy drop the “Apple Evangelist” moniker.

    The book is about Google+, so perhaps it makes tactical marketing sense to say he uses Android.

    Better is as better does, which is all about the user.
