» Passive-aggressiveness, a two-act play

Act 1: Goldman Sachs estimates that Google only makes 5 percent of its mobile search revenue from Android and that 75 percent comes from iOS.

» Happy 25th anniversary to TidBITS

Adam Engst looks back on 25 years of publishing TidBITS. I first heard of TidBITS when I bought Adam’s “Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh” in the very early 1990s and was thrilled when TidBITS published one of my silly pieces back in 2002. Other than that one piece, TidBITS has been consistently professional and informative over the years while other sites have come and gone. Congratulations to Adam and Tonya and best wishes for the next 25.

» Confirmed. Again.

Verizon, in its annual data breach report:

Before we get too far, let’s just get this out of the way now — Android wins. Not just wins, but Android wins so hard that most of the suspicious activity logged from iOS devices was just failed Android exploits.

Still, some antivirus software vendor will come out and say how iOS is most at risk because Apple doesn’t allow antivirus software.
