Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y So, Marco Arment, John Gruber, and MG Siegler (has anyone ever seen them in the same room?) all jumped on a quote from Eric Schmidt which was supposedly very arrogant and proves Schmidt knows no developer likes Android. The joke's on them, though, since none of them actually bothered to watch the source video to verify Schmidt was quoted properly. As it turns out, he was not, as Julian Yap notes. Update: Arment, Siegler, and Gruber have posted updates.

And Apple is nicer, more of a friend, etc... ?

In today's world, as long as you have a connection, whether it be a cell phone, home phone, cable, internet, or anything, you have given your information to the world. Even buying a car, you sign those papers, and they sell your information to the world. Why? Becahse they make money. At least with Google, I am aware of this, and it is known, unlike other companies who try and hide the fact. Everyone knows Google makes money off of the people who use their products, but people are ignorant to think companies like, Apple, HP, Dell, and others do not.


There are companies that do not do that, and actively fight against it. Take Mozilla for example.
