The reason is the same fallacy that underlies so many other follies: The seen vs the unseen. Security vulnerabilities are the "unseen".
When a device gets malware, it's not attributed to any vulnerability, but it's just something that "happened" to you, like any other unavoidable, random misfortune.
This fallacy also infects the media, so reviews rarely if ever note factors like security or software updates. They only cover the "seen": Feature checklists and hardware specs.
Here's the break down of days spent in each city.
3 Mountain View
3 Las Vegas
2 Cardiff, Wales
2 Hartford, CT
1 San Antonio
1 Squaw Valley, Tahoe
1 San Francisco
1 Kennewick, WA
1 Warwick, RI
1 Coulee Dam, WA
I spent only one day less in Seattle in 2012 than I did in 2011, but I went to a bunch more cities (however I got an extra day because of the leap year). I separated out the cities in the Bay Area this time because the south bay is substantially different than SF. Conversely, I grouped my stay in Phoenix together even though I was technically in two cities.
Not represented in this data is that some cities I visited more than once. I made two two-day trips to Austin and two one-day trips to Vancouver.
The longest stretch I stayed in Seattle was 52 days. However, I think that stat is a little unfair because I took a road trip to Coulee Dam, WA where I stayed one night before coming back to Seattle for another 48 days. So that makes a 101 day stretch in Washington.
I flew 58,611 miles. I've attached a link to the segment I flew.
