Google There's a bit of a story going on between Google, Acer, and Alibaba, a Chinese mobile operating system vendor. Acer wanted to ship a device with Alibaba's operating system, but Google asked them not to, and Acer complied. The reason is that Acer is a member of the Open Handset Alliance, which prohibits the promotion of non-standard Android implementations - exactly what Alibaba is shipping. On top of that, Alibaba's application store hosts pirated Android applications, including ones from Google.

Thom, are you in full "google can do no wrong" mode today, releasing their press releases as fact? Here's a different take:

Hold on, you're linking to fosspatents.com...

A site owned and run by Florian Mueller a person known to be actively paid by Oracle to shill for them? (which they've admitted to in court)

A person who has a known anti-Google bias.

That site is a poisoned well for information, you're nullifying any argument you might have by pointing to it.

Then it should be quite easy for you to show that he is wrong, shouldn't it? OK, let's see you do it. So far you've only done some name-calling. Address the argument.
