I know I’m unknown in the tech world or blogging world. On occasion, I get some readers and followers, and it’s only a matter of time before someone says, “Look!!!111 This Apple user says Apple is the suxxx!”
So, let’s just point out that:
- Mac OS X is still better than Windows XP/Vista/7/8/(what’s a 9?)/10. Some quality issues on *some* Apple-made software, perhaps, but what is working well still works well. And even some of the stuff where quality falls short is eventually brought back up to snuff. Oh, yeah, and malware is still only trojan horses. You can’t trick *me* into installing stuff, so I’m forever good it would seem.
- Android’s security model is still like that one Mitch Hedberg joke:
To do this show, I had to take a physical, and they asked me a lot of medical questions. And they were, like, yes and no questions, but they were very strangely worded. Like, ‘Have you ever tried sugar — or PCP?’
That joke is Android’s security model. You either say yes to the whole list of things it wants or no. There is no saying yes to photos but no to messages. That’s hardly secure and, for people who seem to love “choice,” that security model gives you ZERO choice. Oh, the irony… 😛
