    Quite. And just imagine what any company that is approached by Google is now going to think. Am I going to get chewed up and spit out in two year's time? To my mind, the Motorola debacle reveals a vacuum right at the heart of Google strategy. 

    I personally don't think of either Apple or Google as making good long-term partners. They'll both figure out their own in-house solutions, or buy one, to replace a business partner/developer solution if there's the right advantage to it.

    You know, I cry for you every time I read your posts... like I did every time Hachi the dog returned to the train station waiting for his master.  But after the 4th or 5th time, I just had to turn the movie off...too pathetic.  really.
