Google A few days ago I dove into the lawsuit filed by Skyhook against Google, and came to the conclusion that Skyhook's case - while an entirely plausible sequence of events considering Google is a big company and hence prone to abuse - simply wasn't a very good one. Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has given a rather generic-looking statement on the matter, but however generic it may be, there's a hint in there.

Why should someone like Google be able to prevent someone from shipping an OS that includes their apps?

Shouldn’t the platform allow any apps, open or closed, regardless of vendor?

What if Linux distributors were not allowed to include an open source VOIP client, if they include Skype. Or no open PDF reader if Adobe reader is used?

Sod them! Google should not have control over other apps if its apps are present too, it’s madness.
