Man! Is it just coincidence or what!? Android 4- ICS. We had iOS4 for a good long time. Apple showered iOS5, though the phone name remains iPhone4S. Uhhhh…Google closing in on the features and versions of their OS with Apple’s iOS! Well, ICS (if not iCS) will be their base now!
iOS – ICS (pronunciation; and vowel ‘O’ replaced with the consonant ‘C’)
Apple – Google (aka Android – well did they deliberately put an ‘A’; and -le postfix of course as in Apple; consonant ‘G’ against vowel ‘A’; ‘o’ – a vowel repeats twice against the twice-occurring consonant ‘p’!? Of course extra ‘g’. Also, both the companies started from something else and now famous for successful mobile phones and the implementation )
Funnier Crazy Variations: pronouncing iO hmmm Yo, WoW; or more to say Ohhhh! (expressing an Yo/Wow factor in their design and overall end product use experience)
(well, in the Southern Indian languages, hmmm Aiyyo, in Odia: Aai, Ohhh; in Marathi, Aai Ga; in the northern Indian languages: Aai O)
Pronouncing IC, hmmm… I See! (meaning I can see they are good, too)
Packaging further, iOS and ICS both have S (oops! even the non-soft and hardcore Microsoft has S,too – Windows and they have not relinquished the S factor from the mobile OS, too keeping it the same name Windows, if not windoWS nor iWS!) and with their S factor, they have all got YeS from the owners, (app) developers and most crucially the users – end users!
And look at the S factor in the name of the co-founders!
Apple: STEVE Jobs (SJ)
Google: SERGEY Brin (SB)
(let’s not go into Microsoft’s CEO STEVE Ballmer; Well, some S have to be meant for Success!)
