My thoughts on the Apple walled garden after spending a couple of years in the iOS ecosystem.

@kev Good post. I've been deep into both Android and Apple's ecosystems. Fanboys hate the "enemy" on both sides but they really are two sides to a same coin and, let's face it, few have the knowledge or $ to really escape both. These days I'm just thankful we all have tools that work for us.


@chris agree completely. I look back at myself a few years ago and I’m sad to say that I was one of those narrow minded people.

Android, iOS, does it really matter? Not at all. It’s a personal choice at the end of the day.

@kev Agreed, also as someone who has been there. My only criteria these days is if it works for me and to do my best to dogfood all I preach at privacy talks. I've had assholes tell me plenty of times that I use [x] wrong or "don't believe in privacy because I had to use Google for something", etc. People are nuts.
