Google Well, that was all rather much. Google just held its keynote speech thing during the opening of the company's I/O conference, and they announced some pretty spectacular stuff. Aside from Android 3.1 for tablets and Android Icecream Sandwich which will unify the tablet and phone versions of Android in Q4 in 2011, Google announced an internet-based music service. And a video service. And an Arduino-based accessory development kit. And Android@Home. And an alliance of device makers and carriers to bring timely Android updates to devices for a minimum of 18 months.

Well... I must be one of these "supposedly educated and intelligent people"... All in all I find these announcements rather positive.

These services, once again, tend to increase usability and quality of Googles products. It seems that all is built to interact with existing systems (also those from competitors) and to avoid Lock-in.

Maybe you could come down to the level of stupid people like me and also explain a bit your statement or was it simply an anti-Google rant?

He won't explain anything to you or to anyone. He is our local hit & run troll. Posts shit, people respond with reasonable counter points, he ignores them. Posts the same shit in other news (any news related to Apple or Google). He's the worst type of Apple fanboy. See for example: http://www.osnews.com/thread?471309
