‘Thank God’ For Apple’s Beautiful Crystal Prisons

Anonymous IT manager, quoted by Zach Epstein for Boy Genius Report:

"During the first week of trials alone, I had one guy crash his Samsung [Android-based phone -ed.] from installing a bunch of poorly made software,’ he continued. ‘Then someone else rooted his [Android-based -ed.] phone and all of his stock apps stopped transmitting data. This was just the trial; imagine what would happen if we deployed these [Android -ed.] phones to more than 200 employees across the company."
“We ended up going with the iPhone,” the executive concluded.

That's a real-world rebuttal to the EFF's criticism of Apple and the walled-garden approach they use for third-party iOS software.
