Just wondering, why is this the case? To not give the website any more traffic?

Hacking Team Uses UEFI BIOS Rootkit to Keep RCS 9 Agent in Target Systems submitted by ObscureMammal to technology

OTL_ 3 points -3 points (+0|-3) ago

I'd have to disagree, physical switches are a lot more likely to be broken and the average user may accidentally flipped something whether knowingly or not. Physical switches will also cause the computer to run slower since it isn't a constant connection from point A to point B. Yes, physical switches would be great for a user that knows what they're doing but a large majority of users have no idea what the inner workings of a computer are.

The physical switches I see mentioned means there would be a need for 4 additional switches + 1 switch for gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetic field sensor (if not more) on a phone. 7 physical switches and then a power button and two volume adjust buttons. It's just not a practical solution, which is why virtual switches like in the BIOS are useful. And then not to mention at least 7 more LEDs that are marked with whichever thing is on or off.

There are problems with virtual switches, but the improvements they provide vastly outweigh the physical switches.

As much as I sympathize for the parents, I am a strong believer of natural selection.

As I mentioned, yes a switch flip is easy, but accidental flipping may be a common occurrence. Putting the BIOS updating aside, there's still two other cost factors that a company needs to consider. Adding redundancy is easy with the dual BIOS since it's identical hardware with a virtual switch, but implementing a new piece of hardware is much more problematic with testing, production, and documentation.
