Apple or Android ? What would Benjamin Franklin have chosen?


With the another drove of news that are critical of Android's security and recent OSX's security woes which experts blame on Apple's lack of transparency., I think the time is right to create this image.

Benjamin Franklin is one of my favorite heroes that I look up to. He was a statesman, scientist, inventor, musician and philosopher as well as one of the founding father of United States ,and hence father of the modern world.

So what would Benjamin Franklin have chosen if he was given a choice between Apple's iOS and Android?

I think answer is obvious. I don't think the close system will ever be as secure as open systems in the long run. Don't forget iOS is only 5 years old. So let's wait and see what would happen in the future.




P.S. I realize there are different version of this quote but this one is my favorite and cover the whole concept.
"Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither and will lose both"- Benjamin Franklin.
