Day 26 of 30 (in 30 days of Geek) – Apple – friend, foe or other?

Day 26 – Apple – friend, foe or other?

See my previous post about thoughts about Microsoft.  As I addressed there, I think both Apple and Microsoft (and Linux) all have their pros and cons.

One thing I dont love is their restrictions on publishing apps.  (You have to go though their app store).  I understand their reasons, security (keeps bad stuff out) and revenue (they want to make $) but I woiuld like to be able to make my own iPhone apps and put them on my own phone.

I have a MacBook and I use it as a family PC, it is great for FaceTime chats with Grandad in America.

I also have an iPhone, and I love it.  The design is perfect, and it just works, every time.

So, I am not an apple “FanBoy” as some call Apple users, but I do use their products a lot.
