Android chief Andy Rubin felt the need to respond to the “misinformation in the press” — meaning the BusinessWeek report from last week by two long-time veterans in the space.
Indirectly, Rubin says that BusinessWeek’s sources are lying, that Google is not (and will not) attempting to strong-arm partners into their own vision of Android.
At the same time, he also notes that they’ve always sort of done that.
You know, “open”.
The song remains the same: Google is redefining “open” on the fly as they see fit depending on their own agenda at any given time.
It remains pure marketing bullshit.
