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.

"Gosh, a company about a million times more open than Apple


Google is a company a million times more open than Apple?

OK - list and describe to me the core algorithms of the Google search engine.
"

Really??? That doesn't even make sense!

Look Champ, nobody said 100% open. We said a million times more open. Admittedly a bit stretched but nowhere does 1 million x = 100%. Google has paid for and supported more open source code in Summer of Code alone then Apple has touched. Android, VP8, Chrome and the rest are just icing on the cake. Quit making ridiculous interpretations of what other people have said.
