    Summary: Google is redefining what ‘open’ really means. It means ‘our way or the highway’. We must sacrifice being ‘open’ for our fragile ‘ecosystem’.

    Rubbish. Pure defecated rubbish.

    Uh, the article fails to recognize that this isn’t an Android-capable, or Android-labeled device. Google is probably in deep legal trouble here. Restraint of trade/antitrust. Multiple jurisdictions. Were Acer headquartered in China, Google’s Ministry of Truth could probably avoid legal issues, since China doesn’t really have a rule of law. But, many other jurisdictions do have a rule of law, and not a “rule by Google.”
    Contracts can be shredded if they aid or abet restraint of trade.
