The Android Dilemma - An Open Platform Open to Piracy?

Yeah right, like the closed platforms aren't open to piracy...let's go over this piracy capable list shall we?

Mac OS: check
iOS (w/jailbreak): check
Windows XP-7: check
Unix: check
AS400: check
Java: check
Chrome: check

I swear to bob, young writers need to actually THINK about the subject matter they write about, not just 'research' it. I quoted that because I've actually heard a local journalist call Google..."the greatest, most accurate research tool available".

Note the only OS here that comes close to 'closed', and that's the walled garden that is iOS.

Once the road block that prevents you from controlling your device is any other OS on earth, it's capable of having pirated material put on it, right along with NON-pirated material you may so choose.

I'm really tired of people thinking this is functionality related, rather than business related.

Get this now, rampant piracy(not causal), is caused by business policies, not the structure of an OS. The only dilemma here is the lack of understanding flaunted by those who get paid to advise people.

You want to fix this? Fix the shitty business models that drive this, and all will be happier in the end.

End of discussion.
