After all, they’ve been fueling Asian knockoff artists (including Samsung) since Android 1.0, at the expense of/on the backs of American companies and American innovation. Remember how Google bought one of the last remaining American mobile device companies (Motorola), only to mine their patents before dumping the company off on the Chinese? All to build a mobile market share monopoly to feed their sweet, sweet digital surveillance advertising business.
Now all that remain are Apple and, surprise, Google. Who, like Microsoft before them, found it worthwhile to stab their hardware “partners” in the back by jumping into the hardware market themselves for some potentially-lucrative double-dipping.
Google are scum, but at least they’re doing the right thing here. For once.
Credit it where credit is due.

Many people who are easily manipulated and naive fell for the fake news from the NYT.
Fake news too?
Good idea, and about time. The keyboard is producing genuine angst among many users, and is generating intense negative press for Apple.
See, for example, this tweet from David Pogue (who certainly is no enemy of Apple): https://twitter.com/pogue/status/1120814670628044800?s=21
