Well, then let me give you a suggestion. if you want to talk Apple, then you are in the right place. If you want to discuss Android, go to an Android centric site. That will make everyone happy. That's why I don't go to Android sites unless i'm going to read about something of interest, but I don't post comments there with my viewpoints on what I see about that platform to get others riled up over it.
Why they posted this article on this site, I don't know what the moderator's intentions were. Personally, if AI created a Android centric site, great. separate the two, make life easy so you and I don't go at each other's throats. Then you go to one site to discuss whichever platform is the topic of discussion.
I, by nature because of the training that I've had on how to analyze things, I have to look at the pros and cons of the discussion and place the weight accordingly in order to arrive at my decision. Something I think it lacking in the vast majority of the population. A lot of people are easily suckered into things. Sometimes we don't realize it until much later after the problems surface to the point where we have to change direction.
I used have to read up on every technology, mfg, etc. because I was paid to do as it was part of my job. I had to be up to speed on IBM, Compaq, Apple, Microsoft, etc. etc. I don't get paid to do that, so I only really care about things that I actually use or plan on using, which is why I'm here. But I do know how to analyze things in ways most people don't because of their lack of training.
SIDE NOTE: The ONLY reason that I can see why AI posted this article in the first place, being an Apple Centric site, is to dig in to a SERIOUS flaw in the Android platform giving Apple users more reasons to not want to use Android and to give us more ammunition as to why we choose to use Apple instead.. But posting this type of article on this type of site will get people riled up that are supportive of the Android platform as some (many) might be in a certain degree of denial about this SERIOUS SECURITY problem that might threaten a platform. In all my time, this may be a serious deal breaker for a LOT of Enterprise customers, and others that will avoid using Android. Google may in fact have to switch gears and make a direction change to avoid this in the future that may close up this Open system. If I were Google's position, I would have to make some rather serious decisions as to how to deal with this platform moving forward to avoid this problem and how it affects 900 Million users. If they don't, there are a lot of people waiting for Android switchers to go to another platform. It's happening to a certain degree with Microsoft.
