Matt Birchler: Apple doesn't operate in a bubble

Astute observation from Matt Birchler:

If we look at Apple through the lens of a manager, they're the type of boss you love to have, one who knows exactly what needs to get done and provides you the tools and instructions on how to do it. Android makers, on the other hand, are like a boss who is too hands-off. They say, "here's a ton of tools, figure out how to use them and see what you come up with." Yes, that can be fun every now and then, but the team that has the defined vision that is better communicated to them will always be more productive than the team that has to make their own way.

Great way of looking at it.
