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.

Controversial? I rarely see any new take on subjects here. The articles are only controversial if:

1) Someone likes Linux and the editor disses Linux
2) Someone like Apple and the editor disses Apple
3) Someone like Google and the editor disses Google

And so on. Since opinions get stated as facts, people get riled up in the comments all the time. Someone is *bound* to find something controversial. The articles promote arguments, not discussion. Bloggers have unfortunately learned that arguments get more page views.

You can even predict the pattern of what will get dissed after a while. It's like a game where you learn the editor's biases and you try to guess their take on every new headline. You'll find that you rarely get surprised.
