I still remember laughing ecstatically at the big bad Pentium's FDIV bug that was taking down all the brand new PCs my hall mates were buying.
What the fuck are you talking about?
On the first point, since Android is open source and I can't download all of that source either I see no reason why the partial codebase of iOS does not qualify.
You can download all of Android's sources.
Where can I download Moto-Blur?
Moto-blur is not Android, it's a replacement UI developed by Motorola. Which, btw, is not as easy to do in iOS (and probably a breach of contract).
the second is at least a questionable claim, given that language preferences vary so much.
That has nothing to do with it. The fact is Objective-C make code injection incredibly easy, which means it's much easier to hook into and modify specific parts of existing applications.
It's not about language preference, it's about a specific side effect of iOS software being written in Objective-C.
But then again, that's not exactly allowed, is it?
I'll be reading a book and then realise I've been on auto-pilot for the last 3 pages and actually have no recollection of what I just read.
That happens to me too, but what makes it especially annoying is that when I re-read, I recognize it and slowly start remembering what I read.
