Google It was inevitable, of course, and rightfully so: Google is having its big I/O conference, so we have to talk about the lack of Honeycomb's source code. While not violating any licenses, the lack of source code doesn't sit well with many - including myself - so it only makes sense people are asking Google about it. Andy Rubin confirmed we're never going to see Honeycomb's sources as a standalone release. He also explained what 'open' means for Android.

So you don't agree, or you don't think Google are all that stuff he said? Reading all of your articles over the past few months about Google and in contrast Apple I would have thought he was pretty well on the money. On numerous occasions you've made comments about supposedly not liking something then prattle on about how it's not so bad, unless it's Apple which seem to have a different set of rules applied to them.

I also think the point about calling something opensource when the source is in no way open is a good one. I actually thought thats what it meant but obviously I need to go and read some of these licenses because from what I'm reading here it can really mean all sorts of things.

But anyway, as someone else said, if banning people for disagreeing with you is what floats your boat then this could well be my first and last post. I generally only come here to see what spin has been put on news stories anyway, so no harm done if it is.
