When I bought my first Mac computer (a Macbook) four years ago, I instantly fell in love with the simplicity, beauty, and stability of the operating system. A short time later, I decided to go 100% Mac and phased out all PCs in my house. The reason was simple - using one platform across all your computing devices makes everything simpler, more seamless, and more enjoyable. When Apple released the iPhone they built a brand new OS, for obvious reasons. But the iPhone was still the exception to the norm, as all other Apple products ran OS X. But with the iPad, and with rumors of a new iPhone OS based Apple TV, it seems that Apple has adopted the iPhone OS as it's second operating system. I say second operating system because the two OSes really have little to nothing in common - input/interface methods, multitasking (or lack thereof), file system, etc. The two OSes may as well have been built by two different companies. So why does that matter? Well, with an iMac, a MacBook, an iPhone, and an iPad, I find that my digital life is becoming more complicated, in large part because of the two OSes. My MacBook and iMac keep files in sync, thanks to iDisk and local file sharing. But the iPad and iPhone? No such luck. I have some great browser plug ins on my OS X machines (such as 1Password) but I can't use them on my other devices. I can edit a spreadsheet on my iMac or MacBook, but getting it to my iPad is a challenge. I learn a shortcut on OS X, but it doesn't apply on my iPhone OS based devices. I like an app on the iPhone OS based device, but there is no equivalent on my OS X devices. Or there is, but I have to buy an entirely new license for it. I'm not saying there's an easy answer here. I just think Apple needs to come up with a more seamless approach to their two platforms. I went 'all Apple' because it makes my life easier to have one computing platform. But Apple is now working hard to build two completely separate platforms. Thoughts?
