Used to be you could get swag for devices for a few bucks, chargers for under $10 everywhere, etc.After watching Apple's event last week I begin to look back at the android side and was reminded where Apple continues to succeed and android fails. One of my biggest complaints about android was in the area of accessories. Because android is so diverse and is constantly evolving it makes it tougher for manufacturers to get on board with providing accessories that support android devices. Thankfully with the improvement of bluetooth technology we are seeing the gap between android and apple accessories shrink. As we embark on a new era of technology with wearables I could not help to see how yet again Apple achieved where android continues to fail. If you look at the Apple watch, despite their crazy interface, they managed to set a standard with their watch bands which will allow 3rd party companies to get on board to support the devices. Android wear devices could benefit if they were to set a standard where watch band manufacturers could create bands that consumers can buy whether they own a LG, Moto, or Samsung.
