Or: Competition is Good
John Gruber on the threat of Google:
A different perspective would be that Google is the bigger threat, and that using Apple products is a way to better protect our privacy and personal information.
This was in response to Dave Winer suggesting why he uses Android:
If there is no alternative to iOS then Apple will have exclusive control over what makes it to market. That is a future none of us should want to live in.
I agree that both threats are very real. Which is why I hope neither wins, but that they continue to compete, forcing each other to be less evil.
