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.

It's not a unique phenomenon; for a time, anything Apple, or Canonical-related was considered a free-pass as well whereas Microsoft were the Big Bad(tm) of the time. While a bit before OSN's time, Microsoft and IBM were darlings of the tech-enthusiast communities as well.

I'm willing to bet that in five years time, saying anything good about Google will also be an instant -1: Troll.
