  No, they wanted to use their OWN ecosystem and not Google's.  All they wanted was a solid handset manufacturer with a half decent brand.
  Except this isn't true since they used the OHA bludgeon against the handset that Acer built for Alibaba.  Given the mention of Baidu and Alibaba this is a direct response to that action.   I suppose that Google has pretty much written off China as a revenue source already but the PRC can still cause it heartburn.
You guys do remember that he was VP of merchandising at Target right?  And the Target brand today is largely a result of his work in restyling it.   If JCP can survive it'll be because he's going to drag it into the 21st century.
  You mock but that's how it works when a senior member of a federal agency or military "retires" and ends up working for the contractor they were supposedly the watchdog for.     It is an accepted manner of corruption since it is essentially impossible to prove and difficult or illegal to discourage (i.e. not allowing them to work in the industry ever again).   Not saying that this is what happened but it happens often enough that a perception that an impropriety may...
