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!)

On the auspicious occasion of VijayaDashamii, the soul celebrates the freedom and the eternity as it departed from the cancered body! Cancer was just a reminder to us that the body is a body, a temporary form and shape! The soul will gain another form and shape in the name of someBODY and again be in Sync !
The soul was at peace as it could contribute finally to India , where the body and mind got actually reunited in Sync with the Soul through Spiritual Enlightenment! The uniting and Syncing of Inner and Outer! The latest strategy shift of Apple in form of products, services, marketing towards India shows that – iStrategy!
iP* – I Product! Iconic Product(s)! Inherently Productive, Infectiously Positive, Inherently Portable, Inherently Present, Inherently Prevalent!
iPod (a medium of sound and music, iMusic) was pricey yet not so pricey though! But what Apple was lacking at least in the area of mobile phone presence in India, it’s starting to fill the vacuum through its series of iPhone (not to be iPrice)! iPad is the tablet! iOS is just starting to fill the small yet most significant features for the users across! So ‘I’ for Implementation! Not just the spread of iTunes (iThink, IT)!
So the iSoul was at iEase and at iPeace! As it’s known Steve died peacefully!
iSteve not any more in the world of the alive! But Inner Spirit eternal! The identity of S, is evergreen!
The day for the Wall Street be remembered the iStreet!
Steve Jobs, you have never departed! Because you will be remembered not as the physical body and form we have seen, but as the great phenomenon, the great soul through its contribution chain of innovation and inspiration in the form of products better known as revolution!
A JOB Well Done! iSoul!
A toast to the iCreativity, iScience, iTechnology!
The APPLE was a BYTE earlier, now it’s starting to be a full APPLE! So FRESH again!
The time for iSport! Towards iPerfection!
The ‘I’ Eye of Eyes!
‘I’ – EYE! The Eye is a sphere! So it’s the world, the globe! It just doesn’t see things, it visualises them, it has a vision!
The “I” ‘Of’ “SPIRIT”, the “I” ‘Of’ “Soul”! (iOS)
The I Of S! The In and Out of S! (iOS)
The “I” “C”! Yes, I See! (iC*) The Independent Cloud! The “Icon” of the “Century”!
“I” for IMAGINATION, “I” for INNOVATION, “I” for INSPIRATION!
When expressed with respect to the SOUL, the “I” is just the AVATAR, the INCARNATION!
The “I” is so sweetly and positively Infectious!
Mathematically, ‘I’ to the power of Infinity!
