Out of the box Apple wins. Hands down. I fully acknowledge that and am very comfortable with that fact. Apple verses Google as far as data privacy and protection goes, Apple also wins. But as a secure platform, Samsung is definitely ahead in this game. Not even Blackberry can match it at the moment.
At what point do people finally realise that the emperor has no clothes?
When you get these kind of accusations, they’re very hard to defend against. Especially when your entire livelihood, your complete business model, is what is being attacked here.
Facebook has no business model that will help it survive in the long term. It intends to sell apps via its new “App Center” but even that is a losing proposition.

I still have countless boxed editions of games going back to the early 1990s, and for rare occasions I still buy boxed games when I think the game warrants it. Nearly always the Collectors Edition. But I also have the Steam versions of many boxed games I have purchased. So some games I have paid for several times. Why?
I have a very serious admission to make. I used IE9 today for the first time in ... well ... I don't think I've ever opened it before and actually looked at it. I might throw the URL to google chrome into the run box, start the download and then close the browser. But I don't think I've ever actually paid it attention before. I looked at the interface of IE9 for the first time today, had a play with using the browser. Purely on aesthetic alone I deem it to be.....
Read that last sentence again. The part I bolded.
One more time.
