McD's.

Since they've got that new bacon quarter pounder that basically wins me over.

Should I know what those are?


Those are very sacred foods meant only for AWESOME Americans like myself. Perhaps you might get a chance to have some, maybe, if you ask nice enough... Canada isn't so far away after all. Let me speak to them, and see if we can arrange for a meal to be sent to your house.

I took a 500-mile trip to central Oregon this summer. On the way up, I stopped at both McDonald's and Burger King for a drink.

Large drink at Burger King - $2.37
Large drink at McDonald's - $1.00

I think it's clear who the winner is here.

I vote IOS, mostly, ok fine, entirely because it's the only one I've used.

iOS is what Apple devices (aka iDevices) use. Android is what every other phone uses (for the most part).

No. You can get any iOS app to work on Android if you know what you are doing.

I have an iPhone and it works fine for me. iOS is secure, it's pretty, it runs good, and it's simple. I also use Linux for my computers and Android is a denomination of Linux, so I guess you could kinda say I use Android on my computer. Linux can be a bit more complicated but it lets you do just about anything you want.

Either way, it just depends on what type of operator you're looking for. I'll vote for iOS, because why not?

I vote for Android. I've never used an iOS and Android hasn't failed me yet.

I prefer the Android operating system on my cellular mobile device. I've used iPads, iPhones, iPods, and I can't stand them. Just one button? What is this, the stone age?

I've never been a big Apple person. I don't mind using a Mac if I have to, but I can't use the mobile devices without being tempted to throw them at the wall from time to time.

Also, iTunes. Disgusting.

However, I've had the same smartphone for almost three years (Droid 2) and the operating system has given me no trouble at all (apart from the pullout keyboard, but who needs that?). And it seems to hold a charge much better than any one of my other immediate family members' devices, which are all iOS, and have all been replaced or brought in for repair at least once since I got my phone.

My sister's last iPhone is sitting in a bag of rice, totally defunct and dead with no chance of being brought back. This same sister accidentally dropped my Android phone in a bucket of melted ice (water, to you science enthusiasts) a few months ago. There was a bit of a delay in response time for a couple hours, but soon afterward it returned back to its normal behavior.

So clearly, if you haven't yet figured it out, my vote goes to...

Hmm... I didn't know that. I just had my reasoning because I looked for some apps on iOS which were there then looked for them and android and they weren't there. Or I might not even be thinking of android i'm not 100%
