Lies, damned lies and statistics

This week’s Macworld piece sums up the Macalope’s Retrevo survey criticism and looks at a claim made in new Apple ads as well as some of Adrian Kingsley-Hughes’s analysis of the ads.

  • Splashman:

    Mr. Macalope sir,

    I disagree with your definition of “more secure” in this context. The ads aren’t aimed at techies or mythical pundits, they’re aimed at average consumers. To the average consumer, “more secure” means “I’ll have less problems with those virus thingies.” By that definition, Macs are indeed more secure, and thus the ad is accurate.
