“Adding a slew of features stolen from competitors all at once seems to indicate that Apple is thinking differently about messaging, and perhaps for the first time seriously questioning Messages’ ability to hold onto its spot as the most-used app on your phone.”

Wow got a few more responses than I thought I’d get to the question about HTC being the next Apple. And I pretty much agree with y’all. Apple controls every aspect of their products: design, marketing, apps, software…even the accessories to a point. HTC is not even close to having that type of control. HTC has to play by Google’s rules and make adjustments to whatever Google puts out. I could never imagine Apple giving that type of control of the software or any other part of their devices to anyone else.
