Don’t be a fanboy. Open your mind.

I find it pretty hard to hold myself back from taking a dig at people who swear by a particular brand of products. “I only buy Apple” or “Windows is the only platform I’d ever use” is enough to fill me with a fit of rage.

If you think about it, take a step back, and look at the entire picture, you could be having a better experience in general if you were more open to any product.

Instead of it being a question of Google v Apple v Microsoft, ask yourself “which product works best for me?” Every different company has it’s strengths, and by sticking exclusively to one you are absolutely missing out.

Be open minded. Consider your options all the time. Don’t be a fanboy.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised how many more options you’ll have.
