Getting crazy behind the scenes! I think I’m right and Murani, well, completely friggin’ wrong and has a fruity sig.

Where do you get Google to “end Android customization” out of Rumor has it that Andy Rubin may start putting the breaks on whatever he, and there could be a more right man for such a job, thinks is worth saying no to? They already say no to a number of things in their policies, just not on the fly.
That said, stock Android for the win, and I doubt there’s anything stopping some random company in Vietnam from making a decent launcher app, meaning not something burned into the device like Sense is which you cannot get rid of, but a launcher… and I definitely don’t think things like Sense and MOTOBLUR are going anywhere as a result of this. Ahh whatever, much ado about jack shit

Its more about being truly open source. Google is now firmly in a position of power as the OEMs have publicly and internally fully committed to the platform.
This is why product & brand diversification on carriers/in the market is so important. Lol @ OEMs for falling for the do no evil spill. Consumers on the other hand probably could care less unless

Okay, let’s continue to presume this rumor is in fact true and not completely exaggerated.
You actually think that if companies knew that Andy Rubin might say No to some stock UI that was too shitty for his liking? Do you think he might bother to define what and what would not slide under such new rules or would it depend on whether or not his wife broke his balls about something that morning?
Lol @ this obsession of what is and what isn’t evil. Do you think this will make Android better or worse? Better. If Android is better, do those poor bastards, the OEMs, suffer? No? So what the fɸck is your problem?

Besides, were you to even take issue with anything here, wouldn’t you be more sympathetic to the free open source software community than OEMs?
And if you said "Oh yeah, that makes more sense" right there, since you presumably even know what source code is, zoom back a bit and tell me if Android has been good overall for Linux or bad. The answer’s good, to save you some Binging.
Whom or what has Android or Andy Rubin, other than Windows Phone’s ability to become relevant, ever hurt?
Bunch of bullshit right here, flapping your lip Murani. Go ride your bike. And stop using two spaces after a period – or program something for Windows Phone that adds that extra space to save everyone a tap to be incorrect like you both in opinion and grammar.
