             The difference between moral, ethical, and legal can seem somewhat challenging to many, but in the real sense, there is a difference amongst these words. Morals are used in the social setting to define the concept of personal characters. On the other hand, ethics is a social system where morals standards are applied. Ethics in other words helps establish codes of behaviors or standards that are expected by a group to which that person belongs. Family ethics, professional ethics, company ethics, social ethics, or national ethics are some of examples of ethics that define an individual’s behavior expected. It is true that when your moral code does not change, the ethics you practice is dependent of your behaviors.

Let’s consider a criminal defense lawyer in developing the difference between ethics, morals, and legal in the social setting, (Siegel, 1999). Although the lawyer’s personal moral code finds murder reprehensible and immoral, ethics calls the accused client defended in any way, irrespective of the lawyer knowing the party is guilty. It doesn’t matter whether setting the person free will engage in murder activities again. Legal ethics in respect to such a situation overrides personal morals for the purpose of upholding justice system. The accused at any given way must be given a fair trial where the prosecution should prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, (Trevino et al., 1999).

Compared to Microsoft, the Macintosh operating system development teams have engaged in activities of developing suitable systems that attract end users. The team has had graphical and usability performance, multimedia, and web application development as a high priority that stays longer. The results indicate on the usability, performance, and versatility of the Apple operating system. The bias of one to another made developed based on the preference to get sleek ergonomic design to the systems in any direction. Another aspect is due to the popularity and success of the Apple brands such as iTunes, iPad, and iPhone among others. The bias on the other aspect could result to cultural situations such as the surrounding favoring Apple systems over PCs, (Lu & Thomas, 2008).

Designing a survey in order to ensure that it’s not bias has never been easy in most cases. The reason is due to the many factors needed to be respected before the survey is approved. Different factors relate to each other thus developing suitable survey that is not biased becomes technical. In a general generic way, accountability of the system should be maintained by making mention of systems and PCs. This helps develop a designing survey that has no biasness in the setting. In such a situation, there will be no biases of leading of questions in support of one focus relative to the other party. The biases should be engineering out of the whole system effort in order to ensure fewer respondents as well, (Phillips & Spencer, 2011).

In summary, those who view ethics, morals, and legal aspect to look alike should understand either has a meaning and an application different from the other. The thing that these words share is that they relate and requires them applied effectively. Understanding such aspects help in the development of a survey that is not bias.
