Pound the Quality

John Gruber:

But my interest remains, as ever, in the quality of the apps, not the quantity. Let’s say that when the dust starts to settle in this market, Android winds up with far fewer total apps than iPhone OS, but they’re of generally higher quality. That would make Android the Mac to the iPhone’s Windows. I would switch to that platform.

Having lots of applications is actually a detriment, in as much as it makes it harder to find the good ones.

That may be true, but I think it's a dramatic way of phrasing it. "Having lots of money is actually a detriment, in as much as it makes your wallet thicker and could introduce dangerous hip and back problems."

Hmm, I meant it as an aside, not some sort of dramatic statement.
