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.

You're missing the point of the post.

There cannot be a credible argument to be made, because of the source.

Have you never heard of the concept of conflict of interest or poisoned well?

This is like saying Fox News or Russia Today are credible sources of impartial news.

Regardless of whatever is posted or said by this person everything is suspect because of past and present behaviour, and as such cannot be relied upon for any arguments or information.
