In this week’s lecture there was a strong focus on Apple and Android and comparing the two. This got me thinking about why I choose to be loyal to Apple when I grew up in a household filled with android products.
My parents had always owned android phones and naturally my first phone was a hand-me-down Samsung. I honestly don’t remember which one but what I do remember was the confusion it gave me trying to find apps and download apps. I simply did not like it’s layout. Clearly I needed someone to give me everything already picked out for me, clearly I wanted an iPhone.
I finally got myself my first iPhone after my parents told me that I had to buy one. So I found a job and got myself an iPhone 6S. I absolutely loved the layout! Finding apps was easy, finding music was quick and simple and I knew what was happening because I recognised all the apps.
Looking back at this memory, I’ve come to realise that I clearly prefer my devices to have closed source software . I’m not saying that android devices (open sourced software) are horrible but they confused me majorly when trying to use them.
