Google "Google is making another attempt to fix the Android update problem at the Google I/O conference. The plan is to give smartphone, tablet and chip manufacturers earlier opportunities to adapt their current and new hardware to forthcoming Android versions. Google said that it hopes that this will allow users to receive their updates faster. To achieve this, Android executive Hugo Barra announced a 'Platform Development Kit'." I have my doubts.

This is what happens

When you let OEMs and Carriers have free reign over the platform.

Google sold its soul for Android dominance. This is just the pains of that blood pact.

One day we'll realize that these people are the enemies and stop letting the wolves into the hen house.

I'd expect Google, of all companies (even moreso than Apple) to be actively trying to give at least Carriers the go around and bypass the middle man. Nexus was a nice try, try again.

Of course. Doesn't everyone know that corporations have souls? Why else would there be laws treating them as people?
