Sorry if this post is unirrelevant to the thread.
I access my banking, credit cards, and stuff for shopping, and much much more. I run Microsoft's free antivirus program and in 4 years have not had a single problem.
the problem lies in the users users are dumb. They don't run updates because it makes them restart the computer. They don't run AV programs because they bought a budget PC and want to play MMORPG games and the AV program slows them down. They don't use firefox that I install for them with Ad Block Plus and they open every stinking email that comes in their inbox.
Mac's are great for users. they are slow and steady easy to use and chug right along.
PC's are for people who want to customize their user experience. I can build my own PC which I am in the process of doing. It is going to be 16gb RAM 12TB HDD space smoking fast monster that will do anything and everything. I can hook into 4 of my buddies PC's and we can share digital content between up on a VPN network.
Try building a Mac. Oh wait you CAN'T. If you get caught using OSX on non-Mac hardware they will SUE you.
Apple's mobile devices lag behind Android devices as well. Siri wasn't apple first android had voice commands before apple did. Then if you make a tablet device like Samsung did that is faster, better, lighter then an ipad Apple will sue you.
Unfortunately the one thing that Apple did do right was the iPod and iPod touch. So I still have one of them it sits in my closet for now.
Oh the battery is getting low on my laptop let me change it out. Try doing that on a MBP. Oh wait users are too stupid to change a battery.
