He’s the self proclaimed King of the jungle, he’s fit, he’s strong, he’s arrogant, nothing can stand in his way. His powerful paws, strong set of carnivorous teeth, can tear apart any herd he wants to feed on. He’s free, he refuses to be tamed, he has the wild all to himself, to roam, to breed, to exploit and to inhabit.
In contrast, the sheep, the calm one, meek, obedient, loyal to his master. Must be told what to do and where to go. Easily influenced by a leader, his master, we call him the shepherd. The shepherd leads his sheep, shows them where to go, to eat, to drink, makes sure to keep his sheep together and never letting one sheep stray from fellow sheep.
This picture presented itself to me from different perspectives. Who is the sheep? Who is the lion?
If we try to draw some analogies from the above picture, can we say :
The lions are Android folks? That have the full powers to do and undo on their devices? To roam the wild free and unrestricted?
Can we also say the sheep is iOS users enclosed in a walled garden and never allowed to stray far from fellow sheep? And always ever led by the proverbial Shepherd? (Apple).
Would you prefer life as a lion or that of a sheep? Enclosure in a walled garden with restrictions or freelance ability to roam wild, free and unperturbed. This piece isn’t intend to raise the usual wars among loyal fanboys, but then who wouldn’t love to listen to rants, and sparked emotions. *hides and runs away from the ensuing battle*
