I was reading AppleInsider’s interesting account of how Google isn’t open and in reality controls almost every aspect of the Android experience in terms of handset makers. This interested me, particularly as one thing the company hasn’t controlled very well is malware on its ‘open’ platform, which went up 400 percent recently. It made me think of this graphic, so I made it to get it off my chest. Below is Apple’s ‘1984’ ad. Put Google up there on the screen and that’s the reality, despite the apologists. I hope Apple wins, this time. Peace out. (Oh, and Facebook didn’t pay me, by the way).
