Google At the Google I/O conference, Google just held its second keynote address, which focussed on Android. The talk was held by Vic Gundotra, and he unveiled a number of new features coming in Android 2.2 "Froyo", as well as some features coming in Froyo+1. The main theme of the entire keynote? Openness and choice, and a whole bucketload of not-so-subtle jabs at Apple. I'd like to apologise upfront for a possible lack of critical notes in this article - I'm still handing out the brownie points to Google for yesterday.

"Google isn't Apple... That amounts to a free pass around these parts.


Gosh, a company about a million times more open than Apple is looked upon more favourably than the most closed company in the entire technology sector.

What a shocker.
"

A million more times? Google is only as open as they need to be to drain ever ounce of information they can make money off of out of you. It is still only about the Benjamins. How does Google get off laying blame on developers and users for poor battery performance? How does Google get off rewriting its own history? How does Google get off when they're caught mining access points for personal information? Yes, Thom is willing to look the other way if his agenda is matched.
