Google The only thing from the interview I care about: "We are thinking about how to make Android handle updates better. We see ways we can do this. It's early days. We're talking with our partners and working our way through it. We need time to figure out the mechanics, but it's definitely an area of focus for me and for the team." We've seen empty promises about this before, though.

not just bad for their competitors.. bad for consumers as well. Having health competition in the market place is critical..

I think it will not benefit consumers, but it will not hurt them either, as long as Google keeps its promise to not lock you into proprietary formats and you can take all your data with you at any time.

That way, if a competitor makes a better product, people can switch immediately, and are not held back by vendor lock-in. Admittedly, migrating paid content from the app store is a problem, but that is the same with all DRM schemes.
