"robust"? I think "reliable" Or "accurate" is more apropos...

And given how Apple was blathering about "open standards" some time ago (re: HTML5), giving back to the open source community that gave it much of OS X (and therefore iOS) in the first place, it's not exactly funny to read "non-standard", which is something every company would do to ensure "customer lock-in".

I used to be a fan of Apple, but ever since "You're holding it wrong!" followed up by the articles of the engineer letting the CEO who blamed the customer that there was a defect and that said CEO chose to ignore it, never mind more technical articles that show how these overpriced things are poorly built, it's been harder to like Apple ever since.
