Are apps getting easier to use? Dave Farrington thinks so:
Malware has run amok. Complexity is the new norm. Too much of our digital lives has become a toxic hellstew of privacy and security concerns as we and anything and everything about us has become fair game for the forces that be– Facebook, Google, Amazon, and hackers from Russia and China and elsewhere.
So, what is easier?
Mac and iPhone and iPad customers use their devices more than their Windows and Android counterparts, partly because Apple makes them easier to use so we can do more, but my fear of applications and systems that are easier to use will have the unexpected consequence of more usage, which results in more addictions, which results in more opportunities for malware and their proponents– Facebook and Google, I’m looking at you– to take advantage of us.
Addiction comes from usage.
