Google "We know what Nexus means now. There can no longer be any doubt: a Nexus device is about openness first and foremost. That does not mean Google won't make compromises with the Nexus program. It simply means that Google will only make compromises when it comes to increasing openness. Why? Because Google benefits from open devices as much, or more than you do. Last year the technology sphere was busily discussing whether or not the Verizon Galaxy Nexus was a 'true' Nexus device. This year we have an answer: a Nexus controlled by a carrier is no Nexus. Rather than get in bed with Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T to produce an LTE version of the Nexus 4, we have HSPA+ only. Even the new Nexus 7 with mobile data is limited to this enhanced 3G standard." Interesting take on the whole thing - reeks a bit of finding a reason for a feature deficiency, but it does fit into the available facts.

Comcast's ambiguous but improving stance on consumer privacy and friendliness

Every time I used to get a support request for the software that monitors any IP traffic of the many American ISPs I couldn't stop thinking that all of the privacy loving Americans are massive wussies. If you value your privacy so much then get a law through to make privacy protected.

Marketing data based on your IP traffic is being sold in a worse form than Google does.
