But if you're willing to accept that the people around you might just be idiots, and not actively planning your overthrow, then the pamphlet is a short and surprisingly amusing read.

Software security testing company Checkmarx tested hundreds of iOS and Android apps for security vulnerabilities.
Contrary to the Popular Myth, their testing found that iOS apps are less secure than Android apps. The researchers attribute this difference, not to the platforms themselves, but to the perception of the platforms:
Because iOS developers perceive iOS as more secure, they make more mistakes in coding, while Android developers, because they perceive the platform as less secure, go to greater lengths to avoid introducing security issues to their code.
This is really nothing new: people have long perceived Apple as more secure than competitors, even though the facts never really bare this out (beyond the advantage Mac has long enjoyed of 'Security Through Obscurity', i.e. having such low market share as to not be the target of most malware development).
Remember when said Android was more secure than iPhone, and the tech media laughed at him? They should have been asking, "What does he know that we don't?"

Replying to an emails on a mobile device can be a challenge, even for short replies. What if there were a system that could automatically determine if an email was answerable with a short reply, and compose a few suitable responses that you could edit or send with just a tap?
Smart Reply, which will be launching later this week, is built on a pair of recurrent neural networks, one used to encode the incoming email and capture the gist of what is being said and the other to predict and compose grammatically correct possible responses.

erect and sapient: before them gapes
the dark abyss to which their progress tends—
if by God's mercy progress ever ends
and does not ceaselessly revolve the same
unfruitful course by changing of a name.
I will not tread your dusty path and flat,
denoting this and that by "this" and "that";
your world immutable wherein no part
the little Maker has with maker's art.
I bow not yet before the iron crown,
nor cast my own small golden scepter down.
