In response for the Font Hipsters

Today I read the article “Font Hipsters” by Daring Fireball and have to comment on the last 3 sentences:

We criticize Android for being poorly designed because it’s poorly designed. We favor iOS because it’s better designed. That’s it.

My reaction is:

We criticize iOS for being totally controlled by Apple because you will need to jailbreak your device to run your own apps. We favor Android because it’s open. It’s you who controls your device.

Anyway, the article was actually about the new Android system font Roboto. Personally I really like the font.
