Back when the iPhone developers were still getting their whine on regarding the “Fucking NDA” and other Apple crimes against humanity (little known fact, the Geneva Conventions have a section regarding cell phone development) one of the more frequent refrains was “I’ll go develop for Android then.” Because, of course, a giant advertising company would automatically be more “open” (whatever the fuck that means); even though there has yet to be a single shred of evidence provided that the actual manufacturers and carriers will let you modify Android based phones in the slightest. But, hey, it’s Google, they can do no wrong; so they must be better than Apple. Right?
Imagine then, the utter shock that I experienced tho discover that Google is putting a application kill-switch into Android. SHOCKED I SAY!!! I can only react to this in one way.
Wait, let me catch my breath…
I’m going to make a prediction. The carriers are going to lock down your precious GooglePhones tighter than a drum; and your buddies at Google aren’t going to do a damn thing to fight it.
