Here’s one place I think Apple could stand to be more open. Why do they insist on baking all these sharing features into the OS? Why not use contracts like Windows 8?
It would be better for consumers because they would get to pick what social networks to add to their phones. It would be better for social networks, which wouldn’t have to hope and pray that they got built into the OS or by developers into apps (i.e. how I pine for send-to-Buffer and send-to-Tumblr buttons in Reeder). And it would be better for Apple, which wouldn’t be caught without the latest network (Pinterest, anyone?), or worse: stuck with a sharing platform that’s going south baked into its OS.
