 ... and I see nothing wrong with what I said. Malware only affects people who want to use the device for data sensitive operations. If you think you can do online banking on a $69 device then you deserve everything you get.
 Wrong. My argument has always been that these people aren't victims. You get what you pay for. Malware included. If you want to do internet banking or other sensitive data actions then you shouldn't expect to pay $69 to get the same functions as an iPad. That's like telling a Formula One driver that a stock Lexus will do the same job. { Now THAT is fucked up } How smart do you really have to be to realize that there must be risks involved if you buy something for $69 to...
 No... you just aren't following the argument. If I see someone selling a $12 burger for $4 then I know that something isn't right. I won't eat that burger. YOU are welcome to it... but Caveat Emptor. You've been warned. Don't cry victim. {... and you have wandered off the original argument so far it's becoming a distant memory}
 ... but that wan't the argument. My buying experience has always told me... you get what you pay for. If you want to be a rube then you are welcome. "MAN EATING CHICKEN INSIDE" Just $5 to view! Pays the $5... goes inside... sees some dude having a Kentucky Fried Chicken dinner.
 Like I said... anyone selling an $8 steak for $2... you know something is wrong. lol!
 OFFS. I'm not buying the $12 burger... I'm buying the fucking $1 burger... the same burger thast is offered at BK, Wendy's, A&W... you name it... but if some guy down the road wants to sell me the $12 burger for $4 or the $1 burger for 25¢ then I know that something is fucked up.
 ... and I'm also saying you get what you pay for. You want quality then pay more. If I buy a $500 Android tablet then I will bitch and complain if it isn't secure... I could have bought an iPad. If I buy a $150 tablet then I will accept whatever bullshit comes along with it. What you are saying is that a person should be able to pay $150 and get everything that comes with a $500 tablet. Bullshit! Security is one of those things you leave at the door when you cheap out.
 If McDonalds is selling burgers for $2 and some guy down the road is selling the same burgers for 50¢... and I choose the 50¢ burger then I can expect everything that I get.
 If I bought an iPad and it had bugs in it then I would be pissed. If I bought something that was 1/4 the cost of the iPad then I would expect everything that came with it. Same with your car example. We just bought a brand new car for $20,000. You can't buy another car in its class for under $20,000. If someone had said, "Hey, this is a brand new brand X car worth $20,000... I can give it to you for $5000!". I'd tell him to stick it up his ass. I would expect every...
  If I go out to buy furniture and I have a choice between a $200 couch and a $500 couch but I take the $200 to save money... you sure as hell won't find me complaining about the legs falling off of it a year later. Maybe some people are that stupid but I have always known that when you buy cheap crap there are always going to be problems with it that are not apparent to the eye. Victims? What bullshit.
