Humor Every now and then, you come across things that make the internet worthwhile. So yeah, there's this whole genitalia length comparing competition going on between Adobe and Apple, where both companies are actually arguing, with straight faces, which of the two is more open (which to me comes across as Mario and Zelda arguing over who's less of a sell-out). Luckily, though, there's the internet to make us laugh.

For anyone wondering, the blue Lego is an Apple specific icon showed in the browser when Flash is missing. If you (like me) stay away from Apple products, you probably don’t understand this picture. You could more or less say that if you find this funny you are an Apple fan boy."

You don't have to be a fan boy to know what a placeholder icon for a missing plugin looks like.

The joke is that people who do not use Apple product probably don't know what a placeholder icon is because till never encountered one.

That may be true for people outside the geek world, but I think that every osnews regular knows the icon, even though some of them would never dare to touch anything from apple.
