I really don't like it when the word ecosystem is used when discussing cellular phones. For instance:

Both the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 and Apple iOS platforms are exclusively designed and optimized to run on very specific hardware configurations which results in a more controlled ecosystem (fragmentation virtually nonexistent), easier deployment of firmware updates and a more stable mobile computing experience.

What?!

Ecosystem is properly defined as "a system formed by the interaction of a community of living organisms with their environment".

Makes no sense to me.

Ok, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
