I was just looking at my new galaxy S3 phone and I saw an alert message in the notification bar. I naively assumed that it was a low power alert, but when I clicked on it, I saw this:

For optimal device performance, T-Mobile recommends that customers routinely restart their Android devices.

Included was a convenient link with more information and a suggestion that this is to be done on a weekly basis. If I was Apple and saw that; it would be all the advertising fodder I’d need against Android. Weekly restart? Really? I though this was 2012. I remember back in the early Windows NT days, a weekly restart was part of a standard sysadmin operating procedure. I guess Google is really following Microsoft’s path….Of course it could just be a T-Mobile “feature”.
