Eric Schmidt Says Some Schmidt

Eric “Foot In Mouth” Schmidt wrote a guide for switching to an Android phone from an iPhone, and it’s amazing (via Stephen Hackett):

Many of my iPhone friends are converting to Android. The latest high-end phones from Samsung (Galaxy S4), Motorola (Verizon Droid Ultra) and the Nexus 5 (for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) have better screens, are faster, and have a much more intuitive interface. They are a great Christmas present to an iPhone user!

Nothing says “I am bad at judging what you want for Christmas” quite like that. Also, please note that Eric Schmidt places two spaces after punctuation. For real.

80% of the world, in the latest surveys, agrees on Android.

What does that mean, exactly?

  1. Set up the Android phone […]

    b) Make sure the software on the Android phone is updated to the latest version (i.e. 4.3 or 4.4). You should get a notification if there are software updates.


Download Google Music Manager onto the Mac, and run it. Music Manager will upload your iTunes music to the cloud.

Unless you live outside the US.

Take the SIM out of the iPhone and insert it into Android.

Sounds painful for Android.
