Let’s face it. Google has taken a few hard blows on the nose regarding the recent security flaws that have surfaced on its Android platform. And some of those loopholes are very dangerous. That was what my latest piece Tech Crunch focused on.
In the article, published yesterday, I gave a breakdown of the latest vulnerabilities in the Android OS, which seem to cast a cloud of doubt over the future of the most popular mobile OS in the world.
The feedback I got on the article was quite startling.
Some called it click-bait material. Others called it crap, and yet others used even more profane language about me and my article. I guess those were the Androiders. Then, the people from the Apple camp started mocking the Android fans and they used terms such as “the truth hurts.”
Meanwhile, I do not attribute myself to any of these radical beliefs. I have no interest in or affiliation with any of these products. I do thorough research and try to provide my readers with well-researched and factual content. I’m proud of what I’m writing about because it reflects the truth, and that’s what my readers deserve.
In fact, as I mentioned in my article, the reason for the discovery of all these security holes in Android is that it is the most widely used OS system, which naturally makes it the most-targeted system as well.
Moreover, Apple iOS and Windows Phone have their own set of nasty vulnerabilities.
And just for the record, I own an Android phone and don’t plan on investing an iPhone any time soon.
So, do you think that Android is going to see a decline in its popularity and sales in light of the security flaws that have been riddling it in the recent months? Write your thoughts in the comment section below.
