Google knew what it was doing when it made and marketed Android as an “open” system. It surely anticipated forks by handset makers as a manageable risk as long as Google kept advancing the system. But I wonder if it expected something like Facebook Home: an inside-out heist, made by a company after the same exact user data and advertisers Google is after.
Maybe I’m missing the point, but Facebook Home just seems like a layer between you and the stuff you want to do on your phone……although that’s what Facebook wants, I’m not so sure that’s what customers want.
This is the best take i’ve read on the ‘Facebook Home’ so far. I think it is a genius move on Facebook’s part to pull off such a thing on rival’s “OPEN” platform. It is just too early to call this a success or a failure. I’m just happy to see the dilution of Google’s vision of Android. Andy Rubin’s ouster from the Android team is now starting to make a bit more sense.
We don’t see unidentified flying objects anymore because we never look up from our phones.

Okay, so now we have LG, Samsung and Google that are making a watch to compete with a product that Apple is supposedly going to make.
The phone wars, the platform wars, should be left to people who work for Apple and Samsung and Google and Microsoft and Nokia and BlackBerry. Do you work for Apple? Do you work for Samsung? No? Then shut up.
Nobody cares what kind of smartphone you believe in. It’s not a religion. It’s not your local sports team even. Stop being a soldier. You are not a soldier. You are just wrong. Shut up.
If you spend your life doing what you love, the speed at which the world goes on and changes around you is irrelevant.
