so your defense is, at that moment in time when this slide was created, "IE" either: - was a typo/sloppy writing, because those managers who approved it were engineers who can't speak Latin (ok, you really mean, are sloppy writers despite their pay grade and responsibilities - don't ask them to read a contract!), - or meant whoever was offering the most to Google at that moment - and since that can change, from time to time, it's as good as "open"? even once Google will...
How do you know that is Google's intent? mind-reading? what we do know - in their own words from the court docs - is: "lead device concept: Give early access to the software to partners who build and distribute devices to our specification (ie, Motorola and Verizon). They get a non-contractual time to market advantage and in return they align to our standard." do you know the meaning of "ie."? it means "that is, Motorola and Verizon." literally. and this is before Google...
ok, you're not a fandroid. but you are a sucker. "open" doesn't really mean "open." it means "open" only when Google is in control. and the "open handset alliance" isn't a level playing field. it's tilted toward/away whoever Googles decides to play favorites with - or punish - to its own advantage. except from now on, of course, it just means Motorola. pul-leeze. go jump in that boat.
it's fascinating to watch the twisted rationalizations of the Fandroids to this smoking gun power point slide. Google has a dramatically more gigantic "reality distortion field" with Google-aid elixar than Apple ever did. Apple is very up front about its "walled garden." it's not open. it's proprietary (except Web Kit). it's Apple's way or the highway. take it as they put it out, on Apple's terms, or leave it. your choice. but Google, ah! it's open! (huge lie). it's...
actually, your problem is the trtuth. Google is being exposed in court for the thieves and phonies they really are.
yup, you nailed it. except it will be 2013.
OMG, reading the many quick web reports on Siegler's post, we have another wave of the Great White Tablet Hope/Hype. This is the one at last! look out Apple! many cite a "complete" Amazon ecosystem? well yes i guess if you ignore all the other Apple ecosystem's hardware, software, and walk-in retail stores that the iPad is integrated with. others point to Amazon's web retail marketing muscle. yes they're right Amazon can spam us to death with Kindle ads whenever we...
stick a fork in it.
another fatally flawed V.1 tablet from a major OEM. flimsy hardware, but the same price as iPad. no software update can fix that. what is wrong with all these people? it's market suicide to do that. you only get one chance to make that first impression. poor Sony, they used to know what they were doing. Stringer's clearly out of his depth.
All this mystery Apple television hype is pretty silly. Apple today sells a state of the art 27" monitor, the Thunderbolt Display, for $999, with decent built in speakers. you don't need a tuner anymore, just add a few HDMI ports, wifi/ethernet, optical sound out, add an AppleTV chip, and give it a slick iOS UI via a Remote app for iDevices, and bingo, you have a beautiful top of the line 27" Apple Television. yeah the price is high end. but Apple can probably begin...
