"Objective-C is kludge"... really?
"Objective-C is kludge which is only relevant to Apple platforms, thus irrelevant to most application developers. Apple is part of an expensive lifestyle fad and has a limited lifespan, so beware about investing much of your life with them."
Them's mighty strong fightin words.
Just a look by the numbers, ios is more popular than every current game console by the numbers. But being nice I added all of the original numbers to make it a 'fair' fight.
We have the nintendo brand at 602.42 million since 1974; the sony playstation brand at 369.8 million since 1994; the xbox brand at 79 million consoles sold since 2001; then we have apple's ios brand at 193.62 million since 2007!
Or nintendo at 16 million per year; sony at 21 million per year; microsoft at 7.9 million per year; apple at 48 million per year.
So by your logic microsoft shouldn't even be trying with the kinect! They should just shut down their games division because no one likes… um wait exactly how do you judge relevant?
