People Completely MisUnderStand that Google is Champion of Open Source Architecture！
The truth is Android is "Openly Stolen Intellectual Property".
- Stolen Multi-touch interface from Apple.
- Stolen App store from Apple.
- Stolen intellectual properties from WinMo.
- Stolen JAVA from SUN/Oracle.
- Stolen Location Service from Skyhook.
- Stolen Logo/Icon name from Atari.
And What The Most Significant " FAKE " is :
- Wide OPEN to Carriers and Manufacturers BUT Desperately CLOSED TO END-USERS, Unless Rooted！！！！！！！！！！！！！！！
You TELL us ALL The READERS about THAT Android Phones' " INFAMOUS BLOATWARE " for Our Reference？？？？？？？？
What Real Open Source means:
"Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in."
Android is not Open Source because Google develop it behind closed doors and don't contribute back to the upstream Linux kernel. They "use" Open Source but they don't contribute to it which makes them leeches.
Android apps and games run inside their Java VM only and don't benefit the broader GNU/Linux ecosystem.
Google doesn't care about real Open Source licences. All they care about is harvesting as
much information from fAndroids so as to sell them more advertising. It's ultimately about how much money they can squeeze out of users.
WE ( At Least REAL TECHIES unlike YOU ) ALL KNOW Android's Open Source is just a " MARKETING LABEL "！！！！！！！！！！！！.
In A NutShell, Android Open System is Counterfeited！！！！！！！！！！！！！
And Google is NOW Trying to Do The Same Thing AGAIN With Their WebM！！！！！！
Google is NOW an out of control mess. What their business reason for acquiring Sketchup, Picasa, YouTube, etc. is has not been explained nor does it make sense. This whole business of having a Chrome OS then not having a Chrome OS and taking Android from phones and scaling it up to tablets shows that the organization suffers from lack of vision and confusion.
Why I can See The DEMISE of Google's ONE of The Biggest REASON is Google searches are getting more and more irrelevant. Sure, they currently have a stranglehold on mindshare, but the quality of search results has plummeted so much over the years that there is a big opportunity for a competitor to eat their lunch. Some deep-pocketed folks have learned to game the super-secret PageRank scheme, so our access to good information is getting choked off unless we plow through the barely relevant hits leading to major corporations to get to the good stuff.
Google is poised to be where Microsoft was around 2000.
