I'm sure a lot of it was in jest but if you notice the comments that followed just proves that it only takes one to turn a thread into a shooting gallery. If you don't like Android, it's very simple, don't use it. There is absolutely nothing that hasn't already been said a 1000 times before on this board. This article was absolutely rificulous to begin with, in the last month alone there were over a dozen arrests of people sharing child pornography, in every case the suspects were using either an iPhone or an iPad, saying Apple computers are the prefered choice of pedophiles is just as ridiculous as saying Android is the preferred phone of terrorist organizations.
When you read an article that points out that AlQaeda operatives are developing custom Android apps to evade surveillance (uncontroversial), and which draws a connection between Google's severe security problems that are not going to be patched for hundreds of millions of users (uncontroversial) and the fact that Android is the development platform of choice for jihaddist revolutionaries who are seeking to attack Western governments and infrastructure (uncontroversial), and your only brain synapse to fire is "I'm being called a terrorist because I use Android!!"
Well, that's just, as you might say "absolutely rificulous"
Try to draw a Venn diagram and study it for a while, and see if you can figure things out for yourself. You only need the most basic thinking skills.

All of the other Android fanbots who showed up in an attempt to scribble their thoughts here are just reinforcing the stereotype that Google attracts stupid customers who think they are saving money by paying a little dime rather than a big fat nickel, and then get all bent out of shape when you point out facts like $0.05 < $0.10.
